Stokes Collection Café

A stylish, modern cafe in The Collection museum, serving locally roasted coffee and a contemporary food menu.

Customers can enjoy Stokes’ famous tea and coffee, as well as many traditional favourites including cream teas and homemade cakes along with a contemporary menu including savoury and sweet crepes, paninis, sandwiches, salads and daily hot specials.

There is a fabulous children’s menu including Raptor Claws (homemade chicken nuggets) and Viking potato long boats. Visitors can even create their own personalised drink by selecting from fruit and/or vegetables for juicing.

Perfect place for a break after visiting PLAY or exploring The Collection museum - and it makes a handy stop off part way up (or down) Steep Hill!

Stokes Collection Cafe also offers gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan options across its food and drink menus.


All areas of Stokes Collection Cafe are accessible. There is a lift to the cafe level from the museum entrance, a portable hearing loop available, flat surfaces throughout and assistance dogs are welcome.
