The Hubbery Cafe

We have decided to embrace the autumn weather and keep our outdoor pop up cafe open on Saturdays and Sundays, 10.00 – 16.00,  through to 12th December. We will continue to serve authentic Swedish fika and we have introduced some new warming lunches. Check out our autumn menu below.

So, wrap up warm and join us in our garden to see and feel the seasons change whilst enjoying a hot drink and a homemade Swedish cinnamon bun or two or why not meet up with your friends around our open fire for a bowl of hot stew.

We have six outdoor under cover 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 and it’s essential if you want to be sure to have a space under cover. Just email us on [email protected] to book in.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Please note that the road closure does not affect access to The Hubbery Cafe. Spithurst Road is open all the way through despite the road closed signs.

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 several years and as we received a lot of positive comments about what we offer, we decided to also open up as an outdoor cafe 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. Plus our So Sussex Chocolate Cake of course famous from the Elderflower Fields festival picnic. We aim to have some gluten free and vegan cake available too. We also offer a small selection of warming lunches; all in one stews and soup. Please see sample menu below (exact details may vary slightly from week to week);
