Have a break from the hustle and bustle and indulge in the freshly made snacks, home-made soups and pastries at the café.
New for this year is the Waterfront Crêperie offering a mix of savoury galettes and sweet crêpes. Sweet options include cinnamon and currants, Nutella and banana, Grand Mariner and orange as well as the classic lemon and sugar.
For the savoury fans, there is black bomber cheese and ham, garlic mushrooms, spinach, tuna and sweet corn, plus the Waterfront Galette - a combination of smoked salmon, spring onions, rocket salad, crème fraîche with a freshly sliced wedge of lemon.
Using a selection of fair trade and locally sourced ingredients, the café is the perfect place to refuel after you explore the galleries. Children's lunch boxes are also readily available as well as a children's play area.
