Cafe Ridgeway About Us

Our Building

Opened in August 2015 in what used to be an old public toilet, The Café at Ridgeway has been transformed into a comfortable and welcoming coffee shop. The aim was to create somewhere to get really good coffee, meet friends, have a business meeting or simply escape for 5 minutes, have a bite to eat and maybe enjoy glass a wine or cold beer, all in a stylish setting.

Our Coffee

Initially trained at the London School of Coffee, we now work with a local supplier and have sourced the best coffee. As a self-confessed coffee addicts, lots (and lots) of taste testing was needed to find just the right taste – smooth but strong.

We’re often asked what our coffee “blend” is. But it’s not a blend. It’s 100% Arabica from a single estate which means it’s the best coffee there is. Every bean has to be good because it’s not blended with anything else. It also happens to be organic and fair trade too.

Our Food

Cakes are either made by ourselves, by local home bakers or small family owned bakery businesses. Many of which you won’t find anywhere else in Newport. We frequently introduce new or unusual flavours to entice customers to try something different, like toasted chocolate banana bread with espresso butter.

The light lunches are prepared each day on site – soups, salads, panini, baguettes. Our offering changes frequently and depends on the seasons and what our customers want.

We try and do things a little bit differently at The Café at Ridgeway, because as Benjamin Franklin said: “If everyone is thinking the same, no-one is thinking.”
