A Great Little Place

A Great Little Place award-winning cafés are passionate about great coffee and delicious fresh food. They offer the finest locally-roasted artisan coffee delivered by trained baristas and imaginative food created in their own kitchens.

In the relaxed atmosphere, you can relish meltingly good paninis, delectable hand-made cakes, fresh soups (made from an abundance of vegetables from their market garden) and mouth-watering pastries. The coffee is expertly made from a blend of traditional flame roasted coffee beans from Fair Trade providers across the world.

The café also offer delicious pre-show meals ahead of selected performances at The Atkinson, as well as wine tasting events throughout the year. Check our events calendar here.
