Espresso bar

All of our sandwiches and salads are made daily in the Tate Modern kitchens. We like to keep things fresh!. Our coffee is roasted on site at Tate Britain by Tate Catering. Here each batch is carefully hand crafted to perfection by the team By direct sourcing green beans we guarantee the producer receives a fair reward for their coffee, making our minimum price at least 50% higher than the Fairtrade minimum.
