Cafes

We're a little short staffed at the moment whilst one of our chefs is getting married (congratulations Yasmin!) and we welcome a new member of the team who will be joining us in the Autumn.  Until then unfortunately we're only able to offer hot food in the daytime and paninis, sandwiches and soup in the evening - but rest assured we're still fully stocked up for Coaltown coffee, homemade cake, and our fabulous Arts Centre sandwiches. Please bear with us and normal service will resume soon!


We're proud to serve Coaltown Coffee, supporting Welsh business. Coaltown is B-Corp certified, meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance.

Our guiding principles shape and direct our innovative and progressive café, which offers a wide selection of hot food, salads, drinks, snacks and cakes.

Our hot food and salads are created by our dedicated chefs and kitchen team, reaching the highest standards of delicious, sustainable cookery. Our menu provides for a range of dietary needs, with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available as standard.

Our extensive supplier list reflects our dedication to offering food that is as locally and ethically sourced as possible.

Safety Measures

  • Abersytwyth Arts Centre is proud to support the NHS Wales Test, Trace and Protect service in controlling the spread of COVID-19. When visiting the Café or Bar you’ll need to complete track & trace for this area. Either via scanning the QR code or completing the paper form
  • Table service will be provided to all customers eating in
  • Alternatively, customers may wish to purchase drinks from our new online ordering platform ‘the Vine’. Any purchases made on the Vine will be delivered to the customer’s table.  
  • We are currently cashless, customers are asked to please pay by card.
