scone 3

Located next to the Bookshop directly opposite the Cathedral.

OPEN: 10am – 4pm Monday to Saturday.


The Cathedral Café specialises in home-made cakes, soups, sandwiches and jacket potatoes. Every day there are specials to tempt you; whether you want an early breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. We are also one of the few places in Derby to serve speciality teas in proper china cups. Very reasonably priced, we have something for all tastes. 

The Café is a friendly welcoming spot to chat with friends, hold informal coffee mornings in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge (lower level of the Café) or simply to sit and watch the world go by. If you do not have time to stop then our take-away service will suit you. Also the Café is available for hire for evening events; and we work with you to design your menu to suit your taste and budget. 

The Café is a fantastic space to think about your next book or gift purchase, available from the Cathedral Bookshop just next door!
