CAFÉ Nucleus

At Café Nucleus we are an oasis on the High Street. You’ll be welcomed with a warm smile, a great atmosphere, fantastic food and good service. Our courtyard cafe is surrounded by beautiful palm and olive trees, feeling a million miles away from Chatham High Street, creating that oh so important holiday feeling.
Serving a mouth-watering menu ranging from soups, sandwiches and salads to hot meals and daily specials, we guarantee you won’t find its like anywhere else in town. We source the majority of our products from local suppliers and farms in Kent, minimising our food miles and supporting our local economy.

Everyday we offer home-made hot and cold dishes, from our famous Croque Monsieur to our 6oz flame grilled burger. Take the weight off your weary feet, enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake and relax. Our Afternoon & Champagne Tea is a must, served daily and perfect to share with friends.
Our heated Mediterranean themed courtyard garden seating area is also a big hit with our customers. If you like to enjoy a cigarette with your coffee or just enjoy soaking up the sun whilst you dine at Café Nucleus, it is your only choice when shopping in town.
From field, boat, herd or flock we at Café Nucleus work with our suppliers and our supply chain to ensure we deliver the very best produce from traceable origins. Working with local suppliers we source some fantastic products from our vegan cakes from Peck & Strong in rural Devon to Kentish milk from Hinxden farm dairy. As members of Produced in Kent, wherever possible we source our ingredients from Kent and its neigbouring counties.
Did we meantion the huge selection of gins we have to offer? 76 and counting! We offer a wide selection of Kentish wines, spirits, champagnes and sparkling wines too – there truly is something for everyone.
