Cantine at Camden Art Centre is delighted to welcome you back to our beautiful café and garden.

Please note the café will be closing at 4pm on Friday 15th October for an internal event.

The café has reopened with a lovely new team, delicious new recipes and some popular classics; perfect artisan coffee, tea, baked goods and natural wines. The team are also developing some fantastic grocery items such as preserves, fresh coffee granola, sourdough bread and other goodies. Cantine uses whole, seasonal and non-processed ingredients in our cooking from fruits and vegetables to sustainably produced unaltered meat and dairy products, freshly milled ancient grain and sourdough breads. At Cantine, we are passionate about creating food that is fresh and nutritious – everything is made from scratch.

Book your table here

The safety and wellbeing of our team and guests is of the utmost importance.  We, therefore, have some new measures in place and changes in how we operate and engage:

  • Please enter via the stepped entrance on Finchley Road (unless you have access requirements in which case continue to use the level access entrance and speak to a member of the Camden Art Centre staff).
  • Please do not enter if you are feeling unwell.
  • Walk-ins will be warmly welcomed, but we will need to book you in through Opentable, in order to comply with NHS Track and Trace, so we may ask you to wait at the entrance while we take these details and also to help control the flow of guests coming in and out of the space.
  • The maximum size table that can be reserved is a party of six and takeaways are not currently available.
  • Menus will be displayed via Qi code and on single-use paper menus which are kept on your table throughout your meal. Once you have finished with them, they will be recycled again and turned back into more menu paper!
  • Card payments are encouraged, our card machines will be sanitised before and after each use. We will no longer accept cash.

We welcome your feedback to help make Cantine at Camden Art Centre a hospitable, warm and safe environment for all.

To visit the exhibition at Camden Art Centre you will need to book a free entry slot in advance, or speak to a member of staff in reception.  See for further information
