Rotherhithe’s Brunel Museum has announced that it’s turning a riverside terrace next to the museum into an outdoor cafe.

Regular attendees to Dulwich market will recognise the Coffee Box van, which offers coffees and juices. On Sundays, Coffee Box will be joined by Dhaclhini, a bespoke cake and brownie maker.

The open-air cafe will be open Sun-Fri, closed on Saturday.

The Museum is now looking to local food as a way of generating income following a difficult year. Katherine McAlpine, Director said: “We know how difficult the past year has been across the tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors. This is a way of us working with local providers to be able to help them sustain their business at this difficult time”

The Museum is just behind Rotherhithe railway station.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Why closing on Saturdays? That’s when they would have more clients, I would think?

    The coffee box is based ah East Dulwich Farmers Market on Saturdays. That’s why. Could always pop down there for a nice day out x

    Not to worry, there is great coffee nearby at St.Mary’s Church and Surrey Docks Farm.

    Could it be something to do with Saturday being the Jewish Sabbath? Brunel was Jewish.
