The Café @ Suffolk Food Hall is open seven-days-a week welcoming customers throughout the Suffolk and Essex area. Serving your favourite barista coffees and teas, cold drinks, light-bites, toasties and sweet treats. Our drink menu is available on this page below. In addition to our selection of drinks, our breakfast restaurant also provides an afternoon tea experience to our customers.

Our new outside area is open, with a covered area and retractable roof is open with lots of seating including built in benches. Alongside the bouncy pillow there is a new bench style area and we’ve added lots of new tables and chairs too.

Inside our seating is located upstairs, accessible by two sets of stairs, one in the Food Hall and one in our Home Department.

We are pleased to welcome you to our outdoor cafe space. Featuring a fully retractable and lit canopy cover, so we have an additional 50 seats looking out over the River Orwell to be enjoyed in all weather conditions. Take time for a catch-up over coffee and cake with friends or family, surrounded by plants and a soothing water feature before heading into the Food Hall to enjoy the selection inside too.

This business expansion has been supported by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, through the Business Resilience and Recovery Grant Scheme.




The Hut @ Suffolk Food Hall is now closed for the 2023 season.
