About Cafe Central

Right at the heart of the Devonshire Dome, our relaxed and welcoming cafe is the perfect place to stop and chat with a coffee, or to enjoy breakfast, lunch, light snacks and afternoon teas. Open from 8.45am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday. You'll find a good selection of freshly- prepared main courses, some cooked on "live action" stations so you can see how it's done. We also offer a range of lighter options including delicious homemade soups, sandwiches and a plentiful salad bar. Alternatively we might be able to tempt you with our wonderful homemade cakes, traditional tray bakes and desserts, all produced within our 'Soil Association Cater mark Bronze Award' for ethical and sustainably sourced ingredients, many selected from local suppliers and showcasing the very best of High Peak produce. We offer a wide range of beverages including many fair-trade and Red Tractor accredited drinks and are proud to serve the country's leading high street branded coffee.
