Lovely atmosphere full of character, very handily situated by town centre and sea front. Tasty and well-presented lunch - good quantity as well as quality! Interesting social enterprise set-up, would definitely recommend. Hope there is a facebook page soon for customers to "like"!

We recently had breakfast atThe Cafe Des Arts. What a great breakfast it was too.There really is not much choice but really you don't need to, when you order The Full Works' breakie you have the lot. The eggs were beautifully fried, unlike most places now that tend to griddle them leaving then either a little too runny on top... More

Great place for lunch with friends and a popular venue for coffee and cakes. Staff are very friendly. The sandwiches especially prawn and tuna are wonderful and very filling. Comfy sofas as well as tables.

Visited hero with two friends for the first time and was very impressed. Decor shows a touch of Bohemia about it and provides a real feeling of warmth and welcome. The menu is very Bistro orientated and food quality and presentation is excellent. Would heartily recommend this for a relaxed lunch.

This is a brilliant cafe with a very relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. The food is also very good. One of the things I found very useful is that they couldnt be more accommodating for our little one if they tried

Very nice spot for a lunch or tea and cake. Not the cheapest in town, but the quality is there and its a NFP organisation so am happier spending my money here than in costa as I know its going to a good cause. Not a restaurant as such, but the menu is more substantial than most cafes and the... More

When my baby was newborn I spent many hours here as there is comfortable seating, you used to be able to reserve the sofas so you could go with a group of friends and have plenty of room. The food is average, but they change the menu up regularly which is good, their gluten free chocolate brownie is particularly delicious!... More

We were here for coffee and cake one afternoon. I was thrilled to find that all our motley crew could enjoy a treat as they offer dairy free, gluten free and vegan options for their cakes. I was also touched that rather than a tip jar the staff have a collection to fund an outreach program they run in their... More

Had a fabulous and plentiful afternoon tea here, freshly made sandwiches, homemade soft & moist coffee cake, huge scones with clotted cream and jam. I liked the fact I could choose any sandwich, cake and drink of my choice. They coped with my complex allergy and I felt very safe. Lovely staff, really friendly and lovely service.
