FRONT PAGE NEWS
The Work Life Food Company has opened its cafe doors at NETPark. Two of our intrepid journalists were despatched to investigate.

The company prides itself on serving locally sourced food in a sustainable way. The cafe promises bird friendly coffee, compostable packaging and you can help yourself to used coffee grounds to fertilise your garden.

The menu consists of sandwiches, light meals and refreshments with plenty of vegan and gluten free options. We enjoyed a cup of coffee and a slice of cake as we sat outside in a rare moment of May sunshine. There are plans to deliver food direct to the local offices and for ice cream deliveries on hot summer days. In keeping with the high tech surroundings, the company has an app to order food and drinks, which can be done in advance or from your table, simply scan the QR code and download or look for "OrderPay" in your app store of choice.

The cafe will eventually open 7 days a week, but at time of writing, is open Monday to Friday.

Registering for the energy switch commits you to absolutely nothing. Once registration closes, there is a tendering process after which you will receive a personal offer. You then simply choose to accept or not, if you think it is worth it.
