The flavours of Greece, Spain, The Levant and North Africa, as well as Italy, can be found on our menus and specials boards. Choose from our small plates and our mixed boards to share, in true Med. style, or enjoy a pizza, pasta or grill item from our mains menu. We're open every day and you don't need to book (but can for parties over 8 and for fewer numbers on special occasions such as Mothers' Day, Easter Sunday etc ). You are welcome to come for a drink at the bar, tapas in our heated courtyard, Breakfast at Benny's, morning coffee, lunch, tea or dinner! You will always find a warm welcome and a buzzy atmosphere.
Located on Felixstowe's main drag - Hamilton Road, Café Bencotto is the result of careful restoration and sympathetic enhancement to what was originally Felixstowe's Fire Station. The gilt framed mirrors, stunning chandeliers and leather seating contrast with the exposed brick and original glazed tiles. You can sit in the window and watch the world go by or in front of the open kitchen where you can see our brigade of chefs busy preparing your fresh food.

£1 Coffee Refills
You can have a second cup of any of our coffees for just £1 per refill, which means you can linger longer, so you might want to check out our range of cakes and pastries in the deli counter.
