Tess & Syed

Our community cafés are vibrant, friendly spaces where people come to eat, work or just relax. Syed, who manages the Teviot Café, loves working at the heart of the community, whether he’s chatting with residents over their daily cup of tea or training young people how to prepare food fresh from the garden. Tess describes how Poplar’s striving for a pot-to-plate ethos, linking up our community gardens with our cafés.
