Dulwich Picture Gallery Café

A visit to the Gallery is not complete without taking a pause to enjoy some of the wide range of food and drink on offer in our contemporary café overlooking the Gallery's gardens and architecture.

From a quick coffee using Union Roasted beans, a light lunch or afternoon tea - there's something to cater to all moods.

Designed by Sedley Place for operators Gather & Gather, the recently refurbished café has an all-new contemporary look, complete with hanging plants and parquet flooring, with plenty of seats inside and out.
