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. Not only do we serve delicious coffee but we help promote and support the works of the Halpern Charitable foundation (HCF) which founded Nucleus Arts. We believe it’s important to support not only local Kentish economy and the vulnerable people in the Medway towns through the dedicated work of the HCF and Nucleus Arts. We help raise the profile of the arts in Medway by offering a friendly, approachable face in three of the five Nucleus Arts locations in Medway.
A coffee isn’t just a coffee… At Café Nucleus it’s an Experience! 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 cakes from Gina’s Fondant Fancies in Chatham to Kentish milk from Hinxden farm dairy in Benenden .Wherever possible we source our ingredients from here in Kent.
Each of our continental cafés has is unique personality and is tailored to its local community of artists. Our flagship cafe is in the heart of the Award-winning Nucleus Arts Centre, a vital pillar to the regeneration of Chatham and the Medway Towns.

We had a wonderful time, such a beautiful place to sit and the food was great!
Brunch on Sunday, the chap who served us was lovely! I feel bad that I didn't leave a tip and notice that service is NOT included on the bill... sorry to the lovely guy... promise to make-up for that oversight... Excellent breakfast, great service, lovely place!
We visited on Sunday for brunch, and really enjoyed our food! The staff were very friendly, and we felt very safe with regards to the current situation. We will definitely be visiting again soon!
The service was awful. Waiters kept touching our cutlery and a waiter touched our cake with his hand. Didn’t bother to apologize or to offer another slice of cake. I will not recommend family or friends to eat in there
Wonderful service & food, every part of the evening seemed so well considered & the setting is beautiful.
Absolutely fabulous food was divine. Will definitely call again 😊
Love Cafe Nucleus, best breakfast, lunch and dinner in Rochester, the team are really friendly and the food is amazing 💖
