Our new Café is opening in our Welcome Wing this week!
I spoke to one of our Monastery Chefs who is looking after the new Café and has worked at The Monastery for two years, Revae, and she told me some exciting news about our new Café space! As Revae explained, we will now be serving a daily homemade hot soup, sandwiches, salads, and all sorts of cakes and treats in our new Café space – and our menu also includes gluten free and vegan options too!
We are also planning on opening an outdoor area at the front of The Monastery alongside tables in our cloister garden as well. You will soon be able to have a nice cappuccino while sitting in the sun, and we are also hoping to serve delicious summer cocktails too!
There are plans to have an even wider selection of delicious food in our café soon, including hot toasties, paninis and a special course of the day from our brilliant Head Chef, John! It all sounds delicious and I am as excited about it as I imagine you are!
Our new Café in the Welcome Wing will be open Sunday to Friday, 10am-4pm. Please note, the Café will be closed on Fridays 2nd, 9th, 23rd and 30th August and on some days the Pantry may be open instead of the Café in the Welcome Wing.
Pre-booked Monastery Afternoon Teas will continue to be served in the traditional settings of our Victorian Pantry.
