Caff A at the Albany

Our fully licensed café sits at the heart of the Albany building and hosts regular arts activity such as Meet Me at the Albany – a weekly arts and lunch club for older people – festival events, live music, markets and more.

It’s a great place to eat, drink, chat, meet friends and colleagues or just take it easy. You can pop-in to enjoy a delicious breakfast, filling lunch or a light pre-show meal, drink or snack.

We have free WiFi and a beautiful garden where we grow lots of the ingredients for dishes on our menu.

Caff A is open:

Monday to Friday: 9am to 5pm
Saturday: 10am to 3pm
Sundays and evenings: in line with events but for at least an hour before performances.

We also have a bar within the main space which is open for lots of our events.

The Albany is a registered charity and all income from Caff A is reinvested into Albany shows and projects which benefit the local community.
