Just grab & go when you need lunch on the run.

Located in the main Campus Kitchen restaurant building on level 0 between the Arts building and the Library.

Blend is my go-to for a quick snack between lectures, the curly fries and mozzarella sticks are my personal favourite.

Bob Champion

A breakfast and lunch spot for UEA and NHS staff.

Located in the main entrance foyer of the Bob Champion Research & Education Building.

Welcoming and modern. There are lots of lovely sweet and savoury snacks, as well as hot drinks. The lemon and poppy seed muffin is particularly good. It’s a great place to study if you want a break from the library.
