Run by restaurant manager-turned-chef Dominic Bailey, CAST’s pop-up café offers a simple selection of wholesome, imaginative, carefully crafted and predominantly vegetarian dishes. A lovingly restored old Italian espresso machine makes a wonderful cup of locally roasted Yallah coffee.

The café space itself is a delightfully airy and light-filled space, yet cosy in the cooler months thanks to the recent addition of a magnificent wood burning stove, following the successful crowd funding campaign A Hearth For Helston.  

CAST Café events include CAST Café Geographic, an occasional series of evening film screenings. The Café also hosts many of the events organised by CAST as part of their public programme. The space is available for private hire for meetings, workshops and screenings. To make enquiries and to discuss hire please email [email protected]
