  • Visitor Information

Late at night it's more like a club than a cafe, and on Sundays it's full of folk who haven't been home since they were at a club. Nevertheless, it's a great place for a coffee, a snack or even a beer, whatever the time. With some excellent DJs spinning chilled tunes round the clock and benches outside for when the sun kindly shines Cafe 1001 has an atmosphere all of its own.
