Food Works Upperthorpe is a sustainable food café operated by Food Works Sheffield. 

The café was previously called ‘Citrus Cafe’ but we have updated our name to become Food Works Upperthorpe.

You can come and enjoy hot drinks and snacks all day and lunch is served from midday. You can order or buy in person our frozen Just Meals to take away too.

Just Meals, cafe meals and drinks are available on a ‘pay what you can afford basis’ but there is a minimum charge of £1.00.

Food Works is a non-profit social enterprise building more fair and sustainable food for Sheffield using surplus and locally grown ingredients.

The cafe is based in the lovely Zest Centre, offering activities like swimming, gym, library and support for people looking to make positive changes in their lives.

If you would like to access the market please visit Food Works Handsworth.
