Handlebar Barista to operate new Bute Park mobile café

Mobile catering and coffee company Handlebar Barista has been awarded a contract to operate catering concessions in Bute Park, Cardiff.

Proud to call themselves Cardiff's most eco-friendly coffee company, they will soon be serving up their top-secret blend of artisan coffee from a newly refurbished solar powered tuk-tuk, or one of their vintage pedal-powered coffee trikes.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Peter Bradbury: "Bute Park is such an important part of our city, perhaps more so than ever, so it was always our intention to find an operator who would manage their business in the most environmentally conscious way.

"Working with Handlebar Barista means we're providing a fantastic opportunity for a growing local business, improving the offer for visitors to the park, and importantly, generating extra funds to help us continue to maintain and improve this world-class green space.

"Right now people need to be following the rules on Covid-19 and staying at home as much as possible, but in the future when people from across the city and beyond can return to the park, I'm sure many of them will enjoy the opportunity to pick up a coffee and take a stroll through Bute Park's award winning acres."

Operating seven days a week, and also offering breakfast and lunch menus, summer ice creams, cold drinks, hot chocolate and a selection of teas, the mobile café will move between three different locations in the north of the park: Blackweir Changing Rooms, Blackweir footbridge, and a spot on the Taff Trail next to Talybont student residences.

Chris Garrett, Co-Owner at Handlebar Barista: "We can't wait to bring our coffee to Bute Park. Our eco-friendly vehicles and company ethos of sustainability fit perfectly with its wildlife and natural setting, and it's going to be a real honour to be able to serve our customers right in the green heart of the city. We know how important Bute Park is to the people of Cardiff, and are committed to making sure that our presence here adds to everyone's experience when they visit."
