About the employer

Caffe Velo Verde is a place with a difference. Based on an Eco Farm in Screveton, Nottinghamshire, on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir, Café Velo Verde is primarily a cycling café. We have created a place that has the atmosphere and community of a sports social club but with the warm welcome of a good local pub. Enjoyed by many cyclists, joggers, rowers and triathletes, Caffe Velo Verde is also a vital part of the local community. Customers feel equally at home whether they arrive on their own or with a group, in lycra or in rest day attire. With the majority of customers sharing a common interest there’s always someone around they can chat to and someone new to meet. Our menu is made fresh to order and contains our standard breakfast cobs and porridge alongside items such as avocado, waffles, toasties, sandwiches and homemade soup. Our chutney, coleslaw and sausage rolls are also homemade along with the Rocky Road from our extensive cake selection. We sell a large and varied drinks menu including barista speciality drinks, cold drinks, smoothies and shakes. We are open 6 days a week, Tuesday – Sunday and for reduced hours on Bank Holiday Mondays.
