The Yards, Covent Garden to welcome not-for-profit café Fair Shot

Social enterprise Fair Shot Café is to open a not-for-profit café in at The Yards, Covent Garden next month.

The café will occupy a 2,224 square foot unit at 3 Slingsby Place following a relocation from its previous site on Mayfair’s South Molton Street.  It will offer a range of seasonal all-day dining options with a particular focus on fresh brunch dishes with food for all dietary requirements including low FODMAP, vegan and gluten free.

Founded to help address the 94% unemployment rate amongst adults with learning disabilities, Fair Shot works by enrolling 12 young adults with a learning disability into its hospitality training programme each year. During the programme, the trainees spend four days a week at  inhouse at the café and one day attending their partner college.

Bianca Tavella, founder and chief executive of Fair Shot, said: “In the space of a year, we’ve helped 21 adults surmount the unemployment cycle and are continuously working to positively change the mindsets of both customers and potential employers. We believe every single person deserves a fair shot and opening at The Yards, Covent Garden is a huge step forward in helping to achieve this. Fair Shot Café, The Yards will unlock a whole new set of opportunities for our trainees and our business, and we’re excited to open come February.”

The Yards’ diverse F&B offering also includes the newly opened Pan-Asian concept Gura Gura, Burmese restaurant Lahpet, and independent bakery brand Buns From Home.

On behalf of Longmartin Properties, Simon Taylor, property director at the Mercers’ Company, said: “Over the past year, The Yards has welcomed several distinctive F&B concepts and we feel immensely proud to be welcoming Fair Shot Café to the destination. As a brand which represents and reflects community, equality, and possibility, we are delighted to be the chosen location for their only café, reinforcing our position as an F&B destination within central London that encompasses variety and difference.”
