Nunnery Café

The Nunnery Café runs alongside the Nunnery Gallery at 181 Bow Rd, London E3 2SJ, and is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm. We serve AllPress coffee – roasted down the road in Dalston – and a menu including locally-made cakes and pastries as well as a soup of the day, cheese toasties, eggs on toast and more!

Providing our visitors and locals with a place to unwind and enjoy a coffee, all café proceeds go back into supporting Bow Arts' inspiring gallery and event programme. 

Exhibitions

On the walls of the Nunnery Café, we showcase a changing exhibition programme of affordable artwork by artists who work in Bow Arts' studios, currently showing prints by Javi Cazenave.
