V&A Main Café

The wonders of the V&A include the lavishly decorated, original Victorian refreshment rooms, the first ever to be purpose-built in a museum. Here you can enjoy a wide selection of hot food, salads, sandwiches and cakes as you take in the amazing architecture and décor all around you.

Children are well catered for here – there is a children’s menu at the hot food counter in the main café along with pre-prepared lunchboxes.
