The Nunnery Café runs alongside the Nunnery Gallery at 181 Bow Rd, London E3 2SJ, and is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 4.30pm. We serve AllPress coffee – roasted down the road in Dalston – and a menu including locally-made cakes and pastries as well as freshly-made vegetarian sandwiches and salads for lunch. Click here to download our menu!

Providing our visitors and locals with a place to unwind and enjoy a coffee, all café proceeds go back into supporting Bow Arts' inspiring gallery and event programme. 

Steuart Padwick remodelled the Nunnery Café in 2019 using four bespoke colours inspired by the building’s original 19th century tiled floor, created in partnership with Dulux.

Bow Arts would like to extend a special thanks to:

Steuart Padwick furniture and lighting designs
Dulux bespoke paint colours
Galliford Try birch plywood
Astro Lighting light fittings

Thanks also to HDCollins, AR18 and FibreStar.
