The American Lyceum movement began the same year that the Tamworth Lyceum building was constructed; 1826. We design our food, events and gifts to nurture the mind, body and spirit.

The Tamworth Lyceum is a café, event space, gift shop and natural grocer nestled in historic downtown Tamworth. A great community space for locals as well as travelers and vacationers.

Food plays a big role in how communities reinvent themselves. You see it in major cities and tucked away towns across the country. At the Tamworth Lyceum we stay true to the classic, New England roots while borrowing from cultures across the globe.

The Lyceum offers a rare opportunity to see amazing artists in an intimate, cozy space. There is not a bad seat in the house and we offer local brews, tasty wines and mead. Our kitchen is open and we offer dinner specials for evening events as well!
