The TreeHouse cafe opened last month on the front line where students meet the so-called 'New Broughton' residents and the old community of Lower Broughton, at the corner of Lower Broughton Road and Cromwell Road.

With its duck-egg blue and copper coloured decor, mandala artworks on the walls, reclaimed chapel chairs, old doors for tables and apple crates for shelving, it looks like it's landed from hipster capital Shoreditch...but it hasn't. The TreeHouse is a family owned, independent cafe that believes in good things for good people – or 'Children and well-behaved adults welcome', as it states on the window...

"We're not a posh coffee shop, we've just got very good coffee and ambience, and we do want to get involved with the community" says Susie Yeo, whose daughter, Amelia Hamilton owns The TreeHouse "We want to run cake pop classes, doodle classes, something for the children in the area.

"We also want to offer it as a meeting place for people who haven't got the £50 or so to pay for a venue" she adds "It just needs to fit into our routine, and they can have somewhere to meet. It's here for them to use."

On the wall is a Communitree notice board for events, there's a family-friendly area for children and comfy chairs for breastfeeding mums. Dogs are also welcome with drinks laid on.

Meanwhile, The TreeHouse prides itself on its freshly baked show stopper cakes and tarts, and hot breakfast sandwiches and lunch options all made with artisan bread from a local bakery. The coffee is a special house blend made up of beans from Brazil, El Salvador and Indonesia, and drinks can be made with oat milk for vegans.

Amelia is a Cordon Bleu chef who trained at Tante Marieone of only two schools in the UK that offer the prestigious diploma - but her real love is baking and patisserie.

After also training as a chocolatier and holding various positions in London and Manchester, as well as baking cakes to order from home, Amelia decided that she wanted to create a special environment where she could express her creativity, and the idea for The TreeHouse was born.

"We have put a lot of hard work into setting up The TreeHouse and we really want it to work and become a space for the community to come and enjoy" she explains "We would love to hear from people, so please get in touch and share ideas."


The TreeHouse is open Tuesday to Friday 9:30am-4:30pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10am-3pm

Lived round the corner for 25 years and so happy to see change of shop instead of the usual takeaways. I hope it does well but there is little to no community around her now so i think you will have a fight on your hands.

Excellent I demand Salford Council looks at the advantages of local community cafe's and friendship spaces. I want to see all empty shops and empty homes turned into used that help build better brighter and happier Salford.
