Food and Drink

Whether you need some after-work drinks, a three-course meal or a delicious coffee and cake, there is something for every palate at the Park.

On the Park 

The Park has two main cafés. In the north of the Park by the Tumbling Bay playground, the Timber Lodge Café offers drinks, breakfast, brunch and lunch, and even a BBQ in spring and summer.


In the south of the Park, The Last Drop is by the base of the ArcelorMittal Orbit, and serves coffee, cakes and pastries, light lunches and snacks. 


The Kiosks along the Tessa Jowell Boulevard at the south of the Park offer a delightful range of food and drinks. From Vegan and Greek cuisine to American style diner meals and bubble waffle ice cream, you're sure to find something for you. During events, venues often provide additional catering options. 
The newly-opened Hackney Bridge has a coffee bar, bar and street food market hall. There's also Clarnico Club nearby at Eastwick and Saint Espresso at Here East.

Barge East

Beautifully lit with fairy lights, this heated and covered seating area offers plenty of atmosphere in which to enjoy their delicious small plates and drinks.
