Just something about us…

Situated within the Carnegie Theatre & Arts Centre our cafe is the perfect location for a freshly ground coffee made with the awesome Bruce & Lukes Espresso Blend direct out of Carlisle or indulge in a speciality tea, light snack, breakfast, lunch or delicious cake.

Whether it’s meeting friends, taking a break from the grind, making plans or catching up with colleagues or unwinding before the start of a theatre show our cafe is the ideal place.

We’re one of the most accessible venues in Workington and offer baby changing facilities, free WiFi and if you’ve got a dog they will get looked after too!

You can view our latest breakfast menu here and our main meal menu here. Check out our specials board for a range of daily specials.

We’re also more than just a cafe. We offer Afternoon Teas and being situated within the Carnegie can help you plan and deliver an event right here in the venue. Whether it’s a birthday party or family celebration, business meeting, conference, launch event or even a sit down evening dinner we’re able to offer a whole host of other services including outdoor catering.

If you are wondering who we are, well, we’re the very same people that run the Theatre & Arts Centre, so your support directly contributes to our charitable cause.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
