Eating and drinking

Domini and Peaches Kemp are the culinary sisters behind The Gallery Cafe. Located in the Millennium Wing inside the Clare Street entrance, the Gallery Cafe is a bright, spacious dining area that is ideal for lunch or a quick cup of coffee and a treat before or after viewing the wonderful art collections in the Gallery.

The Gallery café serves a range of salads and daily specials, produced by our team of chefs, as well as delicious home-made treats. Customers can enjoy breakfast options like granola pots or fresh baked pastries and scones, or linger over mid-morning coffee and cake. Lunch options include a delicious selection of soups, salads, deli food, toasted ciabattas and hot daily specials. The Gallery Cafe offers a great range of dishes many of which cater for vegetarian, wheat-free or vegan diets. In addition, it also stocks a range of exclusive wheat-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free low carb salad boxes and cold-pressed juices, created exclusively for the Alchemy Juice Co range by Domini Kemp.

Families and children: 
At The Gallery Cafe, we understand that kids can be fussy and just want the simple things: toasted bagels with peanut butter and banana or pasta with pesto. But we are also happy to serve a half portion of our home-made main courses for under 12s. There is also a small children's area in the Ballroom, a smaller space located within the café, which is perfect for reading, drawing and for hosting our creative young artists!
