Rising Café Coventry
Consistently rated on TripAdvisor as one of the top spots to eat out in Coventry, Rising Café has been showered with five-star reviews since opening. Housed within Coventry Cathedral – a building steeped in history – Rising Café is a favourite with locals and offers a wide range of quality food and drink and generous portion sizes at reasonable prices.
The inspiration behind the café’s name, ethos and tagline – ‘rising from the rubble’ – no doubt comes from the medieval cathedral’s ruin and rebirth following the Blitz. Witty wartime quotes accompany the 1940s-inspired dish names listed on the menu, which boasts enough delicious options to keep you pondering a while. Expect the likes of American-inspired sandwiches, sharing platters and mains such as battered fish and chips. Classic English and Americaninspired breakfasts are also on offer, along with a range of afternoon and cream teas, and a little menu for children. If you’re looking for something sweet to follow your main, don’t miss the puddings and homemade sweet treats displayed on the counter, which are tempting accompaniments to the selection of artisan coffee and tea. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options aplenty, and the consistently glowing reviews prove that this café is ahead of the game. Best of all, 100 per cent of the café’s proceeds go towards UK charity Betel.
