Harbourside Café provides a contemporary menu to be a match for any commercial venue. We offer a range of hot and cold food and drinks with as much variety as we can pack into each week.
The café has a range of seating options; ‘Wagamama’ style tables and benching ideal for groups, tall bar seating for when you want some time out, or chat one-to-one with a friend and some sofa furniture for a more relaxed feel. As we grow we will look to provide additional seating outside the café so that students can enjoy sitting and eating outside on sunny days.
The café is open from 8am each morning and offer breakfast for those students wanting an early start. The menu offers ‘coffee shop’ style options throughout the day, together with a hot lunch option at lunchtime.
During the college day the café is self-service and operates a system of cashless catering making the most of our IT infrastructure and enabling an efficient service, even at the busiest of times.
Our aim is for the Café to open at weekends to the whole community to enjoy. We expect that the facilities that we offer will enable local businesses to host events at the UTC, including use of our Café.
From the beginning of November 2015, we have operated a cashless system to allow students to purchase snacks at break and a meal at lunchtime without having to worry about bringing in cash. Instructions on how to set up an account on the system can be found here.
