At Palmers Café we aim to offer our customers high quality, good value, simple seasonal cooking. Your food is freshly prepared and cooked to order - as much as possible is made by our chefs here in the Town Hall kitchens, including cakes, cookies, bread, sandwiches and soup.

We source produce from local suppliers whenever we can. Tea and coffee are Fairtrade, and all eggs we use are free range.

Drop in between 10am and 4pm Tuesday to Saturday for drinks and snacks to refresh you during your visit. Hot food is available during lunchtimes from Tuesday to Friday (12 noon - 2pm).


I really love the simplicity of the café at Reading Museum. Great food and extremely good value. Really friendly staff and of course the surroundings are wonderful. Highly recommend for lunch or early afternoon tea.
