From tiny acorns mighty oaks trees grow

A WARM WELCOME AWAITS

The story of Café Nucleus starts with an acorn of an idea going against the grain. We set out with a clear vision, to do something different – from our unique surrounds, to bring fully traceable food and drink to Chatham & Rochester.

From boat, herd, flock or field we know where our food comes from.

Our AWARD-WINnING CAFéS

With three locations to choose from, there is a Café Nucleus for you.  Nested amongst the palm trees in the heart of Chatham High Street, you’ll find the Café Nucleus at the Nucleus Arts Centre . In Military Road Chatham, you’ll find the Café Nucleus Lounge, perfect to sit back, relax and unwind with a coffee and a cake.  Café Nucleus Rochester is set in one of the towns grandest buildings, from the high ceilings to the oak paneling – it’s reminiscent of a lost time.
