No visit to Walford Contemporary is complete without a stop off at our café for a hot drink or a slice of one of our famous cream cakes.

The café is open 7 days a week, 9 am – 5 pm Monday to Friday, 10 am – 3 pm Sundays.


Drinks Menu


Locally-grown Walford coffee beans. Roasted in small batches in Patrick’s shed. Soft undertones of rum give way to fruity compost notes.

  • Cappuccino: £2.60
  • Flat White: £2.65
  • Cup of tea in a polystyrene cup with 8 sugars and the bag still in: £0.50

Due to the recent behaviour of some residents, we will no longer be serving alcohol before 10 am.
