This lounge-style space, designed by Matthew Williamson, is the ideal spot to recharge and enjoy quality time with friends and family. 

Visitors can enjoy a carefully curated menu featuring all-day breakfast and lunch options, hot drinks, light snacks and a beautiful selection of main dishes.

As part of our new offering, we have introduced a fantastic afternoon tea menu in the museum's Design Kitchen. Guests can relish lovely views of Holland Park while indulging in a delightful selection of savoury and sweet treats.

Seating is available throughout the museum's atrium, where the ground floor cafe offers a variety of ethically sourced drinks, including coffee and tea, dark cocoa hot chocolate, Flawsome apple juice, Remedy kombucha, Heartsease Farm elderflower presse, and San Pellegrino soft drinks.

We've partnered with Caravan coffee roasters, known for their commitment to ethical sourcing and creating approachable blends since 2010. Their dedication to sustainability and quality earned them the 2023 Retailers Retailer Sustainability Award.

Food options include delicious, sweet treats such as gluten-free blueberry, almond, and polenta cake, toasted sandwiches, plant-based soups, and classic pastries.
