About the Café

Botanical Café offers a range of freshly baked pastries, award-winning sausage rolls, sandwiches, and salads. Alongside the tasty food, the café has the full range of ‘We Proudly Serve Starbucks’ coffee from lattes to frappes.

Starbucks in the Jubilee building 

We chose Starbucks based on its commitment to 100% ethically sourced coffee, produced in line with its Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) practices, in partnership with Conservation International. These practices have created a sustainable supply of high-quality coffee that positively impacts the lives and livelihoods of more than one million coffee farmers and their communities.

Where to find us

You can find Botanical Café on the ground floor of Jubilee, opposite the main lecture theatre.

Some fixed tables and benches sit directly outside the café, sheltered from the wind but catching the sun for part of the day.
