A favourite spot with hungry art lovers, the RA Café in Burlington House offers a welcome space to rest and refuel with a quick bite, mid-exhibition break, leisurely lunch or afternoon tea. 

Drink in the colourful murals created by Royal Academicians through the ages that make an inspiring backdrop for coffee, a snack or something more substantial. Our modern café menu celebrates the best of British produce, with quality and freshness always in the spotlight. Baked on the premises, our cakes, pastries and scones make a tasty treat at any time of day.
