The Canteen

A community Cafe serving house-made cakes, speciality coffees and high-quality, seasonal menus using locally-sourced ingredients.

Discover The Canteen, a haven from the bustling high street. We use seasonal, locally-sourced and foraged ingredients to make all our delicious dishes, cakes, cordials and condiments from scratch.

Housed in a restored Victorian cottage hospital, our modern indoor space is bathed in natural light, while our tranquil outdoor seating area is surrounded by bee-friendly gardens. Family friendly amenities like a dedicated chidren's menu and access to Southwold Library make us a favourite for all ages. 

Our wheelchair access, baby-changing facilities, noise-reducing panels and dog friendly space make us accessible to all.

We host a number of projects that support our community, including events like our popular Community Lunch and Family Tea Club. Follow us on Instagram or visit our website for updates and more information.

The Canteen - where community and quality come together.
