The Hubbery Cafe

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

We have 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 for lunch. To book a table please email us on [email protected]

We look forward to welcoming you.

Please note that our friends from Lindfield Coffee Works and Sussex Mother will do a “take over” of our cafe in August so we can have a little break. They will be open Saturdays and Sundays, 10.00-16.00, during the four weekends in August. Please get in touch with them directly with any queries and to book a table in August [email protected]

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:
