The Lunchroom at City Lit


The Lunchroom - your stylish, spacious café at City Lit has a daily selection of coffees, teas, breakfast treats, delicious Hot Boxes, Hot Snacks and Soups. The café is also serving hand crafted Grumpy Mule Coffee made for you by our very own baristas. Completely redesigned, the Lunchroom has all new stylish tables and chairs and a larger range of treats and healthy meals and snacks on offer every day.

The Lunchroom is brought to you by BaxterStorey – the UK’s largest independent contract catering company - the same people behind the cafes at the Natural History and British Museums.

BaxterStorey’s heritage has been built on sustainably sourcing  fresh, seasonal, local produce, combined with dedicated training and development for their staff – and you’ll recognise some of the people from our café before. 

Baxter Storey have established great partnerships with a series of farmers, producers and artisan food suppliers to bring a quality and affordable service to City Lit students and staff.
