About our café
Our café bar is open from 11am every Monday-Saturday (with the kitchen opening from midday for food orders) and from 1pm on Sundays.
We have an easy 'grab and go' menu of delicious homemade cakes, sweet and savoury muffins and tasty cookies along side a range of freshly made soups, salads and sandwiches made to order. For our Toddler Time Tuesdays and Kids Club Saturdays we also offer a mini meal deal menu for kids (see gallery below). To compliment the food, all made in-house by our Phoenix cooks, we aim to source locally produced items from independent companies who offer something a little different, just like us.
We serve delicious Sacred Spirits distilled in Highgate, pairing perfectly with Fever Tree premium natural mixers. Welcome in the Springtime with a refreshing pink grapefruit gin and Mediterranean tonic while you watch the world go by on our sun-trap balcony. We also stock Square Root sodas, infused by hand in Hackney Downs - not far from Crate Brewery, which produces our lager, cider and ales.
Our auditorium is fully licensed for alcohol, so there's no need to rush – you can relax with your drinks while sitting back and enjoying the film.
Buying our food, snacks and drinks helps support our cinema, which is a charity and fully independent of any chain. We therefore ask that you don’t bring in food or drink from outside.
Did you know you can hire our café and cinema bar for your book launch, poetry reading or other event? We can provide drinks and refreshments for your guests as well as the perfect space for you to host. Packages start from around £60 and can be tailored to suit your needs.

Please note that for live screenings all interval food must be pre-ordered on arrival.
