Café Raystede

Welcome to Café Raystede


From 7th June Café Raystede will be open and operating table service inside. Come and enjoy your favourite dishes, or try one of our new ones! We are serving hot and cold food and drinks, snacks and Heather’s wonderful cakes.

We also have a takeaway service which you will find at the side of the Café so you can enjoy a lovely snack or drink in our outdoor seating areas whilst taking in our fabulous views.

The café closes at 3.45pm so if you want a coffee or an ice cream for the journey home, don’t worry as the takeaway service is open until 4pm.

We have specials available every week. If you just fancy a nice warming hot drink after a walk around our site, come and enjoy our barista Lavazza coffees, they're very popular!

We offer extensive vegetarian and vegan options and can cater to any dietary requirements.

As a leading Centre for Animal Welfare we are committed to delivering the highest standards of animal welfare to the animals in our care. Profits from our café form a significant contribution towards the funding of these services. As such our policy is to be inclusive and cater for all sections of society, providing extensive vegetarian and vegan options whilst sourcing any meat and dairy from local, high welfare farming systems.

We also offer specific children's lunches as well as gluten free options.
