The Hubbery Cafe


Did you know that we are baking at Spithurst Hub most Fridays, just place your order via our online shop before midday on Thursday and collect your treats between 13.00 and 17.30 the Friday after.

Whilst we had hoped to open up our weekend cafe again in 2023, we have, after much deliberation, come to the conclusion that our weekly Hubbery Cafe will be put on hold for the foreseeable future. This has not been an easy decision, but a combination of different factors have led to this outcome. 

Many thanks to all our lovely guests who have supported this venture over the past few years and many thanks to all the amazing young people who have worked with us and who helped us create The Hubbery Cafe! It has been a pleasure to share so many lovely fika moments with you all …

This is not the end of The Hubbery though:

We are still be baking our Swedish cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla buns weekly, just place your order via our HUBBERY BAKERY ONLINE SHOP before midday on Thursdays and pick up your freshly baked buns on Fridays any time between 13.00 and 17.30. Minimum order is four buns. The cost is £3.00 per bun. They are suitable for freezing on the day of purchase so you can stock up and then simply warm them up in your oven at home as and when you wish, 8-10 minutes at 150 degrees.  We also have our freshly baked triangular bread available most weekends and you can order whole chocolate cakes too. 

Our Hubbery food and fika will of course still be available to anyone booking our Spithurst Hub meeting space – The Rosehip Room

Private groups are most welcome to get in touch with us to book The Hubbery for celebrations indoors or outdoors during weekdays or weekends (subject to minimum spend).

We also plan to organise some Hubbery Events every now and then. Many thanks to everyone who came along on 2nd and 3rd September when we were open as part of Artwave . It was great to see so many here.  The next Pop Up Hubbery Cafe will be on 16th and 17th December. More details to follow …

We look forward to continuing to share our Hubbery food and our space with you in different ways going forward.

Fika is the Swedish word for stopping what you’re doing, having a break and enjoying a drink and a homemade treat together with your family, your friends or your colleagues. It’s a hugely important part of Swedish culture and it is a concept that is difficult to fully explain or translate properly …

The Hubbery has been running for Spithurst Hub members and local businesses since we opened Spithurst Hub in 2017. In the middle of the pandemic, after the first lockdown, we decided to also open The Hubbery Cafe to the public during weekends and this venture flourished for two and half years. It became an enjoyable outdoor meeting place for lots of people having Swedish fika together during a difficult time.

Our Hubbery food, still available to meeting room users and private group bookings, is Swedish themed and in partnership with some great local Sussex businesses listed below. We also provide a selection of authentic homemade Swedish cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla buns available to order from our HUBBERY ONLINE SHOP. You can also order our triangular bread and our So Sussex Chocolate Cake famous from the Elderflower Fields Festival picnic.
