The Hubbery Cafe

Our outdoor pop up cafe is open at weekends, 10.00 – 16.00,  for Swedish fika and lunches.

There are six outdoor undercover tables that can be booked in advance, but there are other tables and benches dotted around the garden for people just popping by. We do however recommend booking in advance particularly for lunch.

We look forward to welcoming you.

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 … You just have to visit us to experience it!

The Hubbery has been running for Spithurst Hub members and local businesses for the last couple of years and as we received a lot of positive comments about what we offer, we decided to also open up as an outdoor cafe for the public back in June 2020.  Our menu is Swedish themed and in partnership with some great local Sussex businesses:

Direct trade Colombian filter coffee from Lindfield Coffee Works

Cold drinks from Folkington’s

We provide a selection of homemade Swedish cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla buns, cakes and biscuits and some traditional English favourites.
