With slow coffee drinking and brunch by day, and thoughtful dining, craft beer and cocktails by night. There's always a warm welcome to be found at NOVI...

Day. Evening. Night. 

NOVI is a unique, inspirational venue with two identities. By day NOVI is a cafe and kitchen, serving exceptional coffee, grab ‘n’ go food options, cakes and an array of hearty and healthy brunch and lunch options. By night NOVI becomes a cocktail bar, complete with homemade botanical cocktails, craft beers and wine and serving an exciting selection of small and large plates, and street food options.

We are open from 9am until 3am, seven days a week and our three-storey building offers the perfect spot for drinking, dining and events at any time of day or night. With large bi-fold windows, our ground floor is the ideal spot for people watching while you enjoy coffee and brunch.

On the first floor you can find our lounge bar, complete with access to our living roof terrace. The terrace is ideal for alfresco drinking and dining in the summer months but becomes a winter wonderland complete with heaters, blankets and undercover snug from autumn onwards.

The second floor is our cocktail lounge; the perfect spot to gather with friends on a weekend. Our top floor rooms can both be hired for hosting events, from birthday parties and weddings, to corporate events and functions.

We are completely family friendly with a baby change area on the ground floor, and we adore canine friends too so you really can bring the whole family. We can cater for all dietary requirements and we serve a good selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free food. We accept bookings for drinking and dining - book your table here.

SAT: 9AM - 3AM



We serve speciality coffee, ethically sourced.  Our coffee is supplied by Caravan Coffee. We serve both their signature espresso, Market Blend, with overtones of cherry and damson and Daily Blend, an easy-drinking blend with notes of brown sugar, praline and dark chocolate. All our espresso coffees are served with a double shot and we always have soya and almond milk available. If coffee's not your thing, you might love our healthy smoothies or refreshing teas, all just as good with a slice of cake from the very best local artisan bakers.  Or you could always go rogue and order a Bloody Mary.
