Surrounded by murals created by Royal Academicians through the ages, the RA Café offers a restful and elegant place to enjoy a quick bite to eat, a mid-exhibition break, afternoon tea or a long leisurely lunch.

Located beneath the historic galleries and complementing the creative nature of the Royal Academy, the RA Café blends beautiful food with breath-taking interiors to create a memorable and inviting dining experience. The menu celebrates the best of British produce while offering an innovative flourish to a modern European menu. Nestle into the RA Café for a late breakfast, relaxing lunch or afternoon treat.

The RA Café’s daily changing menu has plenty to offer everyone, from hearty fresh salads and sandwiches to wholesome hot food. Our seasonal menu is produce driven and changes regularly. We offer a suburb selection of specialty tea and coffee, alongside indulgent cakes and freshly baked pastries throughout the day.
