Our cafe is open from 8:30am – 6pm Monday – Friday and 10am – 4pm on Saturdays.  With our relaxed dog-friendly atmosphere, daily newspapers, a lovely view across Barnes Green and free wifi, it’s the perfect spot for having a coffee and catch-up, informal meetings, catching up on emails or grabbing a delicious healthy lunch. The café serves breakfast, homemade lunches (until 2:30pm), salads, quiches, cakes and coffee. If you would like to reserve a table for a large group or meet up, please call ahead.

Before certain theatre performances, we have the OSO Jazz Band playing in the bar, so come along early to soak up the atmosphere before the night’s entertainment.
