Kingston Council eNews -The Chatty Cafe Scheme – April 2021

Posted on 28 April 2021

The Chatty Café Scheme encourages all sorts of hospitality venues across Australia such as cafes, restaurants and pubs, to provide a shared Chatty table which is where customers can sit if they are happy to talk to other customers and “Have a Chat”.

If you are a community focussed venue this is the opportunity for you to support your local customers to connect socially in your safe and comfortable location for a friendly chat. Your chance to make a difference in your community and be acknowledged for it on the Chatty website and on social media.

“Have a Chat” tables are where customers can sit if they are happy to talk to other customers. The aim is to kickstart conversations, get people chatting to increase safe and respectful social connections within a community and possibly reduce loneliness along the way.

There are economic and social advantages to having customers share a table and chat. Having your venue on the website means that more customers will find out about you and it shows you care about the community.
