A new cafe is welcoming customers after officially opening in Beith.

Cafe Vibe, located within the town's community centre, aims to become a 'go-to destination' for locals.

The community-driven initiative is being operated by the Beith Community Association (BCA) and opened for the first time on Wednesday, January 24.

The cafe offers a warm and inviting space for visitors to connect, relax, and savour delightful flavours.

The BCA hope to "redefine the local cafe experience" with the venue on Kings Road also providing a unique blend of community spirit alongside some delectable treats.

A spokesperson from the charity said: "Café Vibe is not just a café; it’s a community hub where neighbours can gather, share stories, and enjoy exceptional food and beverages.

"As an integral part of Beith Community Centre, Café Vibe embodies the values of inclusivity, warmth, and connection.

"From hearty breakfast options to evening delights, the menu caters to diverse tastes, ensuring there’s something for everyone.

"As a community-driven initiative, Cafe Vibe aims to not only satisfy taste buds but also to create a space where friendships are nurtured."

Furthering its efforts to play a vital role in the community, all proceeds from Cafe Vibe will contribute directly to the initiatives and projects run by the BCA.

The spokesperson added: "By indulging in the café's offerings, patrons become contributors to the betterment of the local community."

James Robson, chairperson of Beith Community Association SCIO, has also expressed enthusiasm about Café Vibe.

He said: "We are thrilled to introduce Café Vibe as a space that embodies the essence of community. It's more than a café; it’s a place where connections are forged, and the spirit of togetherness thrives."

Cafe Vibe will operate five days a week: from 9am to 3pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 9am to 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and from 10am to 5pm on Sundays.
