About Godiva's café

Located in the atmospheric vaulted undercroft of St. Mary's Guildhall, Godiva's café offers a relaxed setting for light snacks, hearty lunches, or a quick coffee with family and friends. Just a short stroll from Coventry's central shopping areas, Godiva's is a perfect place to unwind in the city's historic Cathedral Quarter.

We don't serve wedges in a vintage shoe, or soup on a Pyrenean roof tile,  but you can expect good tasty food at competitive prices, in unique historic surroundings. We offer a wide selection of freshly prepared dishes, cooked in the same medieval kitchens that have catered for royalty and civic dignitaries for nearly 700 years (with a few updates over time).

Godiva's is fully licensed, and we endeavour to use locally sourced and Fairtrade products where available. Children can choose from their own Godiva's Gang menu, and high chairs are available for our youngest guests. Special dietary requirements can be catered for and vegetarian options are always included on our menus.



Choose from our selection of everyday snacks, salads and hot lunches, or just drop in for coffee and some of our delicious cakes and pastries while enjoying FREE WiFi. Don't miss our generous and popular carvery, available Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtimes.

Why not treat a friend or colleague? Vouchers available for a unique gift idea.
