Some of our cafés and shops are now open at our St Pancras site.
We’re reopening our cafés and restaurants gradually to keep everyone safe. At the moment, we have reopened two of our cafés and can’t wait to welcome you back when you visit the Library.
Origin Coffee, Entrance Hall
Located in the Entrance Hall, this coffee shop offers a superb selection of espresso-based drinks and batch brew filter coffee. You can expect a regularly rotating selection of direct trade coffees, tea and hot chocolate, a selection of cold drinks as well as St John Bakery pastries, fruit, snacks and artisan chocolate.
Origin Coffee will reopen in January 2021.
Kings Library Café, Upper Ground Floor
Overlooking the King’s Library, this café serves a selection of hot food, delicious pre-packed sandwiches, salads, cakes and snacks, along with a range of hot and cold beverages.
To keep everyone safe there is a reduced amount of seating available, and there is limited catering in our Terrace behind the café. We’re also accepting card payments only.
