Went with a friend, fab service. Food was lovely & cakes looked scrummy but could not fit them in, we will try next visit. Friendly & relaxed atmosphere . Would recommend a visit. We will be back soon for cake 😊

An excellent destination for breakfast, very well cooked with good ingredients, all washed down with a tasty coffee. It is also possible to have a small portion, which is ideal if you don't have a big appetite or you're just not very hungry. Cakes also excellent.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere in an excellent, spacious room. Coffees and teas were excellent, and their breakfasts homely, generously proportioned, well-prepared and good. Very pleasant service. The fact that it is a local social enterprise is attractive too.

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
