We're delighted that our Atrium Cafe is open, serving affordable hot drinks and food in the heart of Mayfair.

Ri café
Royal Institution

We are delighted that the Royal Institution café has reopened, following its closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and will offer us all a variety of hot drinks and food, with space to sit in the heart of the historic Ri building.

The cafe is closed from the 11 December to 14 December, inclusive.

Currently the cafe is open on Monday to Thursday, 9am to 3pm. It is closed on Fridays and at weekends.

Please check our 'Visit us' page for any closures which will also apply to the cafe.

We are really excited about the opportunity for this space at the Ri to once again be used as an area to relax, enjoy good quality coffee and food, and meet with colleagues, friends and family

Buying directly from the Café directly supports the Ri’s charitable activities, such as support for schools in disadvantaged areas.
