Check out this communal poem we all wrote at the Cafe recently – it’s amazing!!


Our International Cafe


Is friendship, warmth and above all fun

Is simply the best way of socialising

and therefore making new friends

sharing stories over a cup of tea


is a very nice place to meet various

and other-country friends; So I like ‘here’.

Its a home where home is away

a lovely atmosphere that makes me feel like home


Love people – listening to stories

talking to people, wonderful people

shared cultures and food

lovely place…lovely people


Nice to see people enjoying themselves

Playing table tennis etc; its a good place

for meeting new people and I like the cafe foods

that great british menu; a roast and a stew


Its great to meet people from so many cultures

and interact with many cultures all over the world,

the possibility of travelling in and out of wales


I’ve learnt to speak to people, not just for English,

its social skills too. I’m so appreciative of people who

manage this cafe. I am meeting ‘the Diff’erent people



I’ll always be grateful to the cafe they offer amazing

experiences to me and my students

Now I’m one foreigner amongst many

geat organisation


The naturalness of a multi-culture community

Interaction with internationals on a regular basis

a fun way to learn about different cultures

where lives can cross paths and folks can shake hands around the world


This ‘coffee’ is the convergence of civilisations

There are very few places where I could be myself

Church, home and here

Blessings and love to you all!!!
