The modern, vibrant atmosphere offered in the Gate Café gives students a chance to relax in one of the many seating areas – inside at tables in the main canteen or on the mezzanine level, or at tables in the Gate Theatre floor space. In good weather, students can choose to take cold food outside to the courtyard, at picnic tables around the campus or relaxing with friends on the field.
The Gate Café serves breakfast from 8.00am, with a selection of breakfast products including pastries, fruit, bacon rolls and hot or cold drinks. At break, students can choose from a variety of hot and cold snacks. Themed days add interest – traditional British dishes as well as Indian, Italian, Caribbean and Asian cuisines have all featured on the changing menus.
All food is made with fresh, ethically sourced and, where possible, local ingredients.
