M Café

M Café on the Ground Floor enjoys lovely views across the harbour. We offer a delicious range of fresh, Fairtrade and organic hot and cold food and drinks.

Relax and enjoy lunch, a light snack or a tea-time treat while taking in the views of the harbourside. In the warmer weather we open up the walls and offer outdoor seating in Museum Square – the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.

For younger visitors, we have ‘kids bites’ pick ‘n’ mix bags available. M Café is also available for private hire in the evenings – contact us for more information. Highchairs are available.
