Camden Arts Centre Cafe

About Camden Arts Centre Cafe

The airy spaces of the Camden Arts Centre include a welcoming, white-walled cafe, home to healthy home-made food, gourmet coffee and lovely people. It serves continental breakfasts, snacks and lunch, the latter featuring a daily special, soup of the day, mezze, and scrummily fresh sandwiches and salads. Cakes, cookies and snacks sourced from small or organic producers, and the cafe even tries to supply most of it’s own fresh lettuce and herbs during the summer from it’s own garden (where the kitchen scraps are composted). Friendly staff are passionate about the Musetti coffee (normally only served in the likes of Claridges and Selfridges), transforming each cup into a mini masterpiece with latte art - the drawing of delicate designs in the creamy foam. The gallery the cafe is attached to is also totally free and open to the public, making for a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
