Barrow of Treats

Barrow of Treats is a vibrant community café in the busy village of Barrow-upon-Soar.

At the café, our students experience both the kitchen and café aspects of the business, allowing them to develop their cookery skills whilst routinely interacting with customers.

Skills our students learn in the café include:

  • preparing hot and cold food

  • stock rotation and control

  • food hygiene

  • serving drinks and meals to staff, students and take-away customers

  • using the till

  • meeting and greeting take-away customers

The café is renowned locally for its excellent variety of home-baked cakes and students often develop a signature item.
