Take a break with a coffee in the heart of our Royal Festival Hall

Take a break and grab a coffee in the heart of our Grade I listed Royal Festival Hall

Whether you’re looking to grab something on the go or prefer to sit and enjoy freshly made food at your own pace our refurbished Ballroom Cafe is the place to head.

You’ll find a great range of food options waiting for you including quiche, soups, toasties, salads and sausage rolls, sandwiches and wraps, all of them made fresh here at the Southbank Centre daily using locally sourced ingredients. 

This is also the go-to place for freshly ground coffee and a range of teas and other hot drinks; perfectly accompanied by a cake or sweet-treat made in our on-site bakery.

And in the evenings the Ballroom Cafe becomes an extension of our bars, helping ensure you never have to queue too long for your pre-show drinks.
