Vela Art Gallery & Cafe Bar

Vela is an Art Gallery and Cafe Bar on Saxmundham High Street, providing a gemütliche (cosy) atmosphere to enjoy art, German food, German beer and artisan coffee.

Sue & Silke have created a lovely relaxing space to enjoy art, food and drinks. Silke is the main artist and has her print workshop at the rear of the shop. We also host other artists and themed exhibitions.

There is a sheltered courtyard at the rear, to relax and enjoy German food freshly prepared by Sue, with an artisan coffee; glass of wine; or German beer. There are wood burners inside for the colder winter months. 

The Gallery holds events such as art exhibitions; German conversation evenings, local singers/bands; classic guitar recitals; Jazz; Friday evening LGBT+ group and 'Let's talk about.' themed evenings. For more details see the website, Facebook (@VelaArtGallery) or Instagram (@VelaPartners).

Vela Art Gallery is open 4 days per week, Thursday to Sunday (Sue & Silke still have NHS jobs Monday to Wednesday), see website for current opening hours.
