The Bench Café

The Bench Café

Meet, eat, drink and relax at the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s buzzing café, the Bench.

Sustainably crafted in the former space of an undercover playground of the original Grade II London Board School, The Bench Café sustains the vibrant community of the Goldsmiths’ Centre and Clerkenwell’s creative and business communities alike.

Some description

At The Bench Café we combine a pinch of Creativity with a dash of Craftsmanship and a squeeze of Community to create the perfect recipe for a vibrant café encased in the refreshing buzz of a flourishing creative neighbourhood. 

It’s a great place for informal meetings, a quick coffee or a leisurely lunch time inside or on the terrace.

Our Free WI-FI means that you can still keep in touch with the outside world.

The tools of our trade are the freshest, seasonal ingredients that we lovingly craft to create delicious dishes for you and The Bench Café community to enjoy.

Indulge in our selection of grab-and-go coffee, hot drinks and pastries, breakfasts to get out of bed for, a changing daily hot menu and seasonal specialities.
