Emmaus Cambridge is now serving a Christmas lunch for all to enjoy – even customers of the canine variety.

Located three miles north of Cambridge, Joan’s Coffee Shop is inviting customers to enjoy their Christmas lunch with all the trimmings while their dogs tuck into the ‘Dog’s Christmas Dinner’ – made up of sausage, bacon, ham, pepperoni, tuna, cheese, egg, turkey and topped with gravy.

Joan’s Coffee Shop is a social enterprise run by homelessness charity Emmaus Cambridge and generates funding to support the charity’s work in helping formerly homeless people rebuild their lives.

Catering Coordinator, Wendy Martin, said:

“We are very excited to offer a place for dog lovers to come and enjoy a Christmas meal out without worrying about leaving their pets at home. We will be offering the ‘Dog’s Christmas Dinner’ every day up until Christmas, with plans to extend our dog menu in the future.

“Our whole site in Landbeach is very dog-friendly, and we have plenty for people to do – a large garden area to stroll through, second-hand furniture to browse, and a café with hot and cold drinks, cakes, and a main menu with options for vegetarians, vegans, kids, and now dogs.

“We are always encouraging people to visit with their dogs and now when they do, they can enjoy a tasty meal too!”

Joan’s Coffee shop is open Monday – Saturday 9:00am – 4pm and Sunday 10am – 3pm and is located at Green End, Landbeach, Cambridge, CB25 9FD.

Emmaus Cambridge supports formerly homeless people by offering a home for as long they need it and the opportunity to work in the charity’s second-hand shop and café to gain new skills and rebuild confidence and self-esteem.
