Welcome to Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre Peebles
Eastgate Cafe welcomes friends old and new.
Open 10am – 5pm Tuesday – Saturday, 1pm – 5pm on Sunday and Monday and from 6.30pm on show nights.
Welcoming everyone – babies and visiting bikers, large walking groups and small groups of friends, regulars, occasional and first time visitors the Eastgate’s family friendly café is the daytime heart of the Eastgate.
The menu is continually refreshed to increase the range of tasty food and drinks on offer, and to cater for customers who require (or prefer) gluten and/or dairy free options.
The café is famous for its selection of scrumptious cakes including white chocolate and raspberry, lemon and blueberry, carrot cake, Victoria sponge, chocolate cake and pear and ginger loaf. These are all sourced from local bakers as are many of the traybakes, biscuits and scones.
Hot food is centred on lunchtime with a delicious soup of the day, toasted sandwiches and teacakes. Sandwiches with a range of fillings are made to order. Children’s lunchboxes (tiger, lion, bear, elephant and snake) are also made up to order.
In the evening the mood is very different as the busy café becomes a relaxed theatre bar where audience members have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a drink before the show.
Spirits, wines, bottled beers, and soft drinks are served before performances and at the interval.
Whenever you visit, Mikuni and his team extend a warm welcome.
The Eastgate café is fully accessible and was named the first dementia-friendly café in the Scottish Borders.
