Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat between events, or something more substantial after a long day of fascinating talks, Felixstowe has plenty to offer on the refreshment front, with lots of places within easy walking distance of our two main venues.
Both of our venues, the Orwell Hotel and Felixstowe Library, will be offering food and drink over the festival weekend: there will be a dedicated café area at the hotel for festival guests, with teas, coffees, soups and sandwiches available, whilst Café Libra at the library will be open on Saturday, serving its usual range of drinks and snacks.
If you fancy heading into town for a coffee, there are a number of cafés located nearby. The Oaks Tearoom (1 Crescent Road) is just a couple of doors down from the library and has delicious homemade cakes on offer, as well as full afternoon tea. Moving down towards the seafront, the Café on the Corner (16 Hamilton Road) has a great selection of sandwiches and snacks, as well as cooked breakfast and lunch. If you fancy something a bit different, why not head just a little further down the hill to Crafty Coffee (1B Hamilton Road), where you can indulge your creative side and get involved with some fun arts and crafts whilst enjoying your coffee.
If it’s something more substantial you’re after, there are a number of quality restaurants just a few minutes walk from our festival venues. Café Bencotto (128 Hamilton Road) is just down the road from the Orwell Hotel, and offers tasty Mediterranean fare for lunch and dinner. As you head further towards the prom, there are plenty of culinary options, including Indian cuisine at the Blue Naan (7-9 Hamilton Road), and bistro The Alex (123 Undercliff Road West), which offers great sea views. If you want to stretch your legs a little more, why not stroll down to seafood restaurant Fish Dish (68-71 Undercliff Road West). If you want to skip straight to dessert, the Little Ice Cream Company (59-61 Undercliff Road West) is a must, offering delicious ice cream produced right here in Suffolk!
This is just a taster of the cafés and restaurants that you will be able to choose between during your festival stay. If you’d like to find out more about what’s on offer, check out www.visitfelixstowe.co.uk for more information.
