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

Invited by Scottee for #TakeOverStHelens 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.

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.

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

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!
