‘A pop up establishment of disarming eccentricity’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian
(No need to book a ticket, unpick theatrical language or even buy a meal)

Award winning pop-up cafe– which isn’t just arty, it is ART.

Invited by Scottee for #TakeOverStHelens (a three month town-wide festival commissioned by Heart of Glass), Hunt & Darton Cafe is coming to St Helens.

A fully functioning cafe that blends art with the everyday, Hunt & Darton Cafe is a social and artistic hub where spontaneity and performance meet great food and drink.

We promise some exciting surprises and of course the return of the roast dinner sandwich. At Hunt & Darton Cafe we are proud to satisfy appetites in more ways than one.

‘A must-visit Fringe experience’ **** Scotsman
‘A living breathing baking art project’ Cambridge Journal
‘Great work’ The Guardian
‘A uniquely delicious art installation’ Varsity

Hunt & Darton Cafe encourages playful participation and meaningful social encounters through its alternative service from its hosts Hunt & Darton in their iconic fruit or veggie attire, comic interaction through their ‘set menu’ performances, guest waiters and themed day such as ‘You-Do-It’ or ‘Health & Safety’ day.

Food on offer includes cakes (Battenberg!), light lunches and Hunt & Darton’s signature dish; the roast dinner sandwich.

15% discount for OAP’s, students, unemployed & disabled!

Things to spot:

The Survival Shelf, the “not” menu, Takeaway Art, the Boss mug, the quote of the day, the sugar bearers, and of course pineapples.
