• CAST Cafe
  • New Crittall doors in CAST café, installed during the renovation work 2/2

CAST Café will be closed from Saturday 16 December for renovation and will open again in May 2018 in time for the beginning of Groundwork.

After nearly three years running CAST’s pop up café, restaurant manager-turned-chef Dominic Bailey will lead the creation of a new, full-time café business. Scheduled work on the café includes new French windows leading to a terrace, the installation of bench seating, redevelopment of the servery area, and a new kitchen enabling it to open full time. For those familiar with the café, fear not! The café space itself will lose none of it’s delightfully airy and light-filled charm, and the magnificent wood burning stove, funded by the successful crowd funding campaign A Hearth For Helston, will be retained. The improvements to the space will be felt by all.


– A licensed café, open six days a week, Tuesday to Sunday.
