The Container
Visit the University’s most unique cafe on campus, with a focus on high-quality handmade food which is created on campus by our Hospitality catering team. The Container is open from 09:00–17:00 during term time and is located on the ground floor of the Roland Levinsky Building.
The Container cafe's food and drink is a continuation of the Hospitality Shop, with the Container being the new collection point for food boxes and other food supplies. Picnic boxes, sweet treats, bakes and breakfast croissants, English muffins, bagels as well as hot and cold drinks from a barista using organic coffee locally roasted from Owen's Coffee.
Sourcing food and drink from local and sustainable companies are important to the catering team at the University of Plymouth and we're pleased to be collaborating with a fantastic variety of Devon and Cornwall businesses. 
Sustainability is at the core of the cafe with innovative environmental initiatives in place, including the use of a milk pergal to minimise plastic bottles, offering minimal single-use plastic, and all packaging and napkins to be used from sustainable plant-based or recycled materials.

Friend Stop 

Meet new people, connect and share experiences at the café's Friend Stop.
Starting university may be a daunting experience, that's why the cafés on campus have created designated pop-up tables to encourage students and staff to sit, have a natter and make friends on our open and inviting tables.
Everyone is invited to sit at the Friend Stop; whether you're on your own or with a friend or colleague, take a seat, share the table and have a chat with new people.
Whether you stay for ten minutes or spend your time eating breakfast or taking an afternoon tea break, the cafés aim to bring everyone together.

Global Recipe Book 

As part of Global Week, 14–18 November 2022, staff and students were invited to share their favourite recipes from around the world. 
After receiving some excellent submissions, the Global Recipe Book was put together by the Catering Team, offering you the chance to create these dishes and try something new. Each page offers everything you'll need - from ingredients through to cooking methods.
