The Maple Tree Cafe

Repton’s Community Café, the Maple Tree, is a welcoming hub for local individuals drop-ins,

family and community get​-togethers of all ages and interests. It is run entirely by volunteers.


Our Mission

Our café creates an alive & active meeting space engaging the community across age groups, specifically countering social isolation, developing local community initiative​s and relationships,

fostering inter-generational contact and providing access to social and local information.


We are now open inside the cafe (with extra seating in the Gallery) and out on the terrace (weather pemitting) with a more extended menu and cash and contactless card payment.  We are open as follows:

Wednesday and Friday 10 am- 3 pm
Saturday 9.30 am to 12.30 pm

The Maple Tree Café is a space for local people and our interests. If you have ideas for regular café activities or one​-off events please get in touch – either ​by talking with us in the cafe,

commenting on our Facebook page or by popping a note in the Village Hall ​Letter Box.

Fun, Local, Volunteering

We have an amazing team of over 100 volunteers who make our café a fun and special place. We have volunteers of all ages and by having so many, each volunteer can ​help only once a month or as often as they wish. Volunteers work in teams so it is a fun way to meet people, develop new skills and give something back to our community. ​If you’re interested in joining us ask one of the volunteers for details or email:

Our Offer

We offer coffee for a variety of tastes including Latte, Cappuccino, Americano and decaffeinated Nespresso, cafetières and simple Nescafe. We have regular breakfast tea as well as specialty varieties. Our home baked cakes are second to none and we also ​serve simple toast or teacakes with your brew. Watch on Facebook and Instagram for our specials! We can provide take-away drinks and food and we are always happy to fill your water bottle with good old Repton tap water. Do pop in!
