Award winning eatery opens new café at Chesterfield College

One of Chesterfield’s award-winning eateries, The Lilypad, opened a new branch at Chesterfield College last week in time for the start of the new term.

The café, Lilypad at the Arches, is run by the same team who operate The Lilypad in Chesterfield town centre and is part of the new facilities now on offer at the college’s University-Centre at the Infirmary Road campus. Students studying on a range of courses from professional qualifications to Access to Higher Education and Full Honours Degrees will be able to take advantage of the new service when they return to college.

Open from 8am until 3.30pm and offering a selection of breakfast choices, salads, sandwiches, cakes and drinks in a relaxed space, Lilypad at the Arches is a great addition to the food and drink choices available across the college.

The Lilypad Café and Restaurant were winners of The Best Newcomer of the Year in 2016 and The Café and Tea Room of the Year in 2017 at the annual Chesterfield Food & Drink Awards.

Emily Chapman, Manager of the The Lilypad Café and Restaurant said;

“It is really exciting that we are able to expand into the college. Although the menu here is slightly different to what we offer in the town centre, it is developed with the same quality and approach. We have designed the menu and the space we serve the food from to provide staff and students with a chance to recharge their batteries and fuel their brains in between lectures.”
