The Carriageway Café – Middlesbrough Town Hall

The Carriageway is your go-to destination for fantastic food and coffee in the heart of Middlesbrough.

Located in the Town Hall’s carriageway, the café uses the very best locally and ethically sourced ingredients, with a selection of freshly made sandwiches, wholefood salad platters and hot dishes, and a daily-changing specials board.

Coffee lovers will find responsibly sourced coffee from Rounton’s – freshly roasted in North Yorkshire – with organic milk from Darlington’s Acorn Dairy, a selection of organic teas from Storm Tea Merchants in Newcastle, and award-winning single origin hot chocolate – the perfect accompaniment to one of their freshly made scones and cakes.

The Carriageway is open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm (hot food served until 4pm).
