The Coffee House & library
Coffee, food and connections.
As well as being a place to eat and drink, The Coffee House is also place to work, collaborate and meet RSA Fellows.
Displays showcasing innovative designs, change projects, and our history make the coffeehouse an inspiring place to collaborate. Use our interactive meeting spaces, small events venue, and the RSA library. Or just join us for delicious food and drinks.
