8th Day News

Amazing Amy!

This week, the cafe had a new member. Unfortunately, it was only for the week. Amy came in for work experience from Chorlton High School. We found she was brilliantly creative and fun to work with and has a natural flair for working with food. Amy tried her hand at waitressing and kitchen prep alongside some of the other tasks we carry out on a daily basis. She also designed her own salad that we put out on the salad bar, and her own smoothie. She prepared samples of the smoothie for customers to try and we were impressed enough to put it on our menu. Amy also produced some quiches, made a chocolate torte and a lime and matcha cheesecake. What a star!


We’ll leave you with Amy’s thought’s on her week with us. And we promise we definitely did not bribe her to say it. Unless…the torte doesn’t count as a bribe, does it?


I really enjoyed my time here at On the Eighth day, not only are the staff all amazing but they helped  and taught me so much throughout the week. Before I came I had no intention of wanting to work in a restaurant or of becoming a chef, but working here has really inspired me and that has become a possibility. I was given a  variety of tasks which I was always helped with if I needed it. It was really relaxed and fun working in the kitchen as the staff at the cafe are all so funny and kind to me. 

I have definitely enjoyed every day here and  will come back as the food is so good.


Thanks, Amy,  from everyone at Eighth Day. We would love to see you back again so don’t be a stranger!
