Our café is open from Monday to Friday 12.30-4.30 offering a seasonal menu with daily specials. We use fresh ingredients and lunches are prepared to order.

We serve a wide range of teas and use Fairtrade coffee. We also have a selection of cold refreshments and delicious homemade cakes.

The café has a large garden which includes a lawn, and patio areas. Both the garden and café are well-equipped to entertain children. If you need a high chair please ask.

Free internet access and WiFi is available across the premises.

The heart of the community

Our café is one of the few places in Richmond where people of all walks of life come together. It’s a safe, communal, inclusive space where people can enjoy great food and drink and have a chat. If you’re looking to reconnect with people in your borough, this is the place for you.
