Coventry Café closed relocated for 2020!

Due to renovations at Coventry Cathedral we have just learned that from Sunday, March 1st (two weeks from now) we must close our Coventry Rising Café until 2021. We will sadly miss all of you for the rest of 2020… but please be sure to stop in for a coffee, cake or lunch on or before our last trading day of Saturday, 29th February.

We are delighted to announce that we have found a new location to occupy during the renovation work at the cathedral, just a short walk away at the former “Drapers Bar” on Earl Street. We will be beginning preparation work in the new venue soon, and hope to be open there within a few weeks – we will confirm an exact date soon. A massive thank you to all of our customers for your loyal support.

Welcome to the Rising Café

At Rising Café we are passionate about providing quality home-baked goods, deliciously innovative classic dishes and excellent beverages that evoke the atmosphere of the 1940s. Our cafés in Coventry and Lincoln aim to provide a wonderful place to relax, socialise, work, hold meetings and above all enjoy exceptional-quality food and drinks at an unbeatable price. Run by previously homeless and substance-addicted men and women, 100% of proceeds go directly towards funding their recovery, and that of many others around the country, in the charity work of Betel UK.
Although we do our best to accommodate everyone who visits the Rising Café, we do often get really busy, so to avoid disappointment we do recomend that you make a reservation. You can find contact details for each of our cafés here.
