The Dairy’s Architecture Café

The home to the ‘Grab and Go’ services for London Road, so focussing on speedy service for food to takeaway, including sandwiches, pastries, snacks and handmade coffee, complementing the Deli, Bar and Hot Food available at the Dairy (our main location), a 1 minute walk away.

We have a collection of Lego® Buildings and Landmarks to help inspire both the next generation of Architects and Teachers that are studying at London Road including our giant Eiffel Tower. Those feeling ambitious can have a go at building the next model for our display from our boxes of bricks for customers to use.
