A fully functioning café that blends art with the everyday, Hunt & Darton Cafe is a social and artistic hub where engagement, spontaneity and performance meet great food and drink.

Jenny Hunt and Holly Darton expose the inner workings of their business by presenting everything as art – from the public display of their bank balance to the lovingly handpicked charity shop crockery.

Hunt & Darton Cafe
encourages playful participation and meaningful social encounters. It can operate as an offsite micro-venue or temporarily transform an existing space in a gallery, theatre or public building. Whether looking for an arts event or a relaxing place to spend the afternoon, customers can expect a welcoming atmosphere and food served with a twist.
