The Southwark Cathedral Cafe is the ideal place to have tea after touring the Cathedral or relax with friends over lunch

We are proud to support local suppliers from Borough Market and surrounds to offer a vibrant and contemporary cafe experience.

A number of our suppliers are walking distance from the Cathedral, including the following;

  • Bread Ahead
  • Extract Coffee
  • Ted's Veg
  • Canton Loose Leaf Tea
  • The Ginger Pig
  • England Preserves
  • Brindisa

We bake all our scones, tarts and traybakes onsite, together with home-made soup, sandwiches and a changing menu of lunchtime food.

Freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, local beer and wine are available, with loose leaf tea and Extract coffee.

Every purchase goes to help to support the life and ministry of Southwark Cathedral.
