The Nunnery Café

Enjoy a coffee and a toastie in our cosy Nunnery Café, serving a selection of locally-made cakes, pastries, toasties, soups and other delicious treats. Tucked away down Bow Arts Lane and adjoined to the Nunnery Gallery, it’s the perfect place to unwind or meet friends.

We serve HeySisterCoffee – a female-led, hand-crafted roastery that’s ethical, empowering and sustainable, with 3% of sales funding projects that support women.

The Nunnery Cafe is open Monday 9am – 1pm, Tuesday to Saturday 9am-4pm, and Sunday 10am-4pm. Eat-in and takeaway options are both available.
