Forth Valley Sensory Centre
Cafe Tiki is our welcoming café providing healthy food, including daily specials and a regular menu of freshly prepared sandwiches, toasties and our delicious homemade soup.
We are fully accessible and our staff will be more than happy to help make your visit as pleasant as possible.
Our suppliers include local award winning butcher, Patrick’s of Camelon and we are proud to serve organic fair-trade coffee from Scotland’s Matthew Algie.
We also have a selection of Large Print and Audio Books displayed within our cafe. These are for customers to browse through and borrow.
Cafe Tiki is open from 8:45am for breakfast rolls and coffee until 4pm each weekday.
We are proud to have the Healthy Living Award for our Cafe. This means we only use low fat spread, we don’t cook with fats or high levels of salt and we always have healthy (and gluten free) options available.
We have fresh homemade soup available each day plus a hot special. We also do sandwiches, toaties and jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings.
We have two meal deals on offer, the first provides a bowl or warming soup and a filled roll of your choice for just £3.50 or meal deal two with a sandwich, crisps and a can of juice for £2.80
You can download a copy of our menu in PDF format here. We also have braille menus available in the Cafe.
Meet the Cook
All our specials are prepared on site by our visually impaired cook David, who is 36 and lost his sight early due to a degenerative eye condition. David commented; “Over the past ten years, working at the sensory centre has really boosted my confidence. I am walking taller than ever before.”
David’s signature dishes include mince and tatties, lasagne and a range of filling soups which are available to eat in or take away. David says “A real Scottish favourite are my stovies, just like my gran used to make!”
You can read more about David. You can also see him in action and get David’s recipes here. You can also see the BBC piece on David and our Cafe at this link
We also have regular home baking on offer courtesy of volunteer Erin and her support worker Linda. Do come in and try out her wonderful sponge cakes, cupcakes and other delights.
