Design Museum Café

Exterior of the Design Museum Café

The Design Museum Café is a beautiful, unusual environment for relaxation and discussion. The 42-seat café faces out towards Michael Hopkins's Round Building and in summer the doors slide open to provide extra seating on the terrace. Designed by Corin Mellor the café is itself a fine example of informal modern dining style, equipped with the best David Mellor tableware.

The café serves delicious lunches from 10am until 3pm using mainly local produce. We also serve specialist teas, coffee and an irresistible selection of home-made cakes from 10am until last service at 4:30pm. The menu changes daily according to the season.

We recommend that you call 01433 650220 (option 3) to book a table if you plan to visit during busy times such as at lunch time and weekends.

If you plan to visit as a group of more than five people please call us to discuss this beforehand to avoid disappointment or delay. There are a limited number of tables and whilst we will attempt to accommodate larger groups, this is not always possible.

The Design Museum Café will be operating with a limited menu until August 2018:

Tea, coffee, cold drinks, cakes and sandwiches only. We apologise for the inconvenience.

The Design Museum and shop are open as normal.
