A cafe with a difference

In the heart of Darlington town centre

ABOUT US

Formed by husband and wife team, Catalin & Mariana Cirimpei, they bring a wealth of experience to the new business as both have worked in the industry for over 15 years.

Catalin, who has worked in many top establishments including Rockliffe Hall, is also an artist and around the walls his own work is displayed. He is also looking for other local artists who would like to display their artwork in the cafe. The cafe offers a range of hot drinks including 14 different types of loose tea, nitrogen coffee and hot sand coffee which is brewed using a pan filled with sand which is heated over an open flame. There's also a choice of freshly made sandwiches, salads, gluten free & vegan cakes and cold drinks on display and these are available as a takeout option too.
