The Hepworth Café

Whether you’re after brunch, lunch or a good cup of tea, The Hepworth Café is the perfect place to discuss our exhibitions, catch up with friends or enjoy a meal with the family.

Hand-crafted coffee, fine food and exceptional service… Let us welcome you to The Hepworth Café

Leeds-based House of Koko  partnered with Wakefield’s MasterChef finalist Chris Hale  and took over the The Hepworth Café in October.

With a new menu, perfectly brewed coffee, loose leaf teas and redesigned dining space, we aim to give all visitors a truly memorable experience.

Please note: On Thursday 19 April: Galleries 4, 5 & 6 will be closed to the public from 2.45pm – 4.30pm. The Hepworth Cafe will stop serving hot food from 2pm, but will still serve tea, coffee and cake. 


The café’s seasonal menu combines all-day brunch favourites with cutting edge cuisine, putting Wakefield firmly on the culinary map with its excellent food and drink.

All of our dishes champion locally sourced ingredients, where possible, and are freshly made to order.

A wide range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available daily.

The Hepworth Café is bringing speciality coffee to Wakefield for the first time.

The café serves   North Star Coffee‘s Czar Street seasonal espresso and we’re working with the North Star team to gain their expert knowledge of all things coffee.

A brew bar offers single origin coffees from around the globe, as well as a batch brew machine for filter coffee.

If you prefer tea, the café serves 20 loose leaf teas, weighed, timed and brewed to perfection for you – and there’s always a good cup of Yorkshire tea on hand.
