Why is it called REST cafe?

REST cafe's name comes from the REST services provided in the same building and is an acronym for Recover, Eat, Support, Talk.

REST is a partnership project led by Norfolk and Waveney MIND bringing together mental health support, local services and a place where everyone can feel welcome. It provides a safe, welcoming, non-clinical space in which people experiencing mental distress or crisis can receive the support and information they need.

You can read more about the services available on the REST website
