Being at the midpoint of the DIY London Thames Walk, the cafe or restaurant in the Tate Modern makes for an excellent spot to break your journey. The perfect pitstop.

The Riverside Café is located on Level 1 of the Natalie Bell building (the ground floor of the Boiler House) and serves freshly-prepared sandwiches, wraps, salads, baked goods, and drinks. With some pretty amazing views.

Th smaller Espresso Bar can be found on level 3 of the same Natalie Bell building.

Exactly what you need after a visit to the Tate Modern.

For a more substantial meal (and some pretty amazing food and drink it is), head upstairs in the Blavatnik Building.

The restaurant is located on Floor 9 of the Blavatnik Building within the Tate Modern art gallery – and is open from 10am until 6pm (although it is currently temporarily closed – please see the Kitchen and Bar instead, a bit more expensive, but this is central London, and it is the most-wonderful lunch with a perfect view of the Millennium Bridge across to St.Paul’s Cathedral).

The restaurant is accessed by a wheelchair accessible lift (which can be very busy at times – visiting earlier in the week is definitely recommended).
