The Gulbenkian Cafe

The Gulbenkian Arts Centre has its very own in-house café and bar which can be enjoyed by students, staff, and theatregoers alike.

The Gulbenkian Arts Centre Café is all about delicious, locally sourced homemade food, great coffee, and good vibes. 

And as a member of Produced in Kent, we are passionate about supporting the diverse range of food and drink businesses in Kent.  

Our all-day brunch menu features hearty cooked breakfasts, eggs on toast, breakfast rolls, waffles, and Kentish mac & cheese - all at unbeatable prices!

And if lunch is what you’re after we are excited to present our brand new grab & go range which include meals as well as snacks & sweet treats. Whether you are looking to explore world flavours, indulge in comfort foods, or snack on fresh vegetarian & vegan offers, you will not be disappointed. Just swing by and grab one of these delicious homemade treats to takeaway and eat at your convenience.

There is also a fully licensed bar, which provides some unique taste sensations. Why not try a crisp, cold beer from a local brewery, a refreshing juice from a nearby orchard, or treat your taste buds to something from the wine list?

Or if you’re just looking for somewhere cosy to spend the afternoon, grab a seat in our renovated dining area with a cup of barista made coffee and a sweet treat.
