Offering Mediterranean style fare, Café Bencotto's sophisticated yet informal interior complements the food freshly prepared by our brigade of chefs in the open plan kitchen.
We're open every day from 9am (10am Sundays), offering pizza, pasta and grilled items, cooked to order, plus the specials of the day. Our platters and small plates enable you to sample and share, in true Mediterranean style. You are also welcome to come and enjoy fresh coffee and pastries or a drink at the bar or in our heated courtyard.
Situated in Felixstowe town centre, Café Bencotto is the result of careful restoration and sympathetic enhancement to what was originally Felixstowe's Fire Station.

Special Offers and Events
Christmas at Café Bencotto
It's that time of year when Christmas starts to feature in our minds and plans are being made for the festive period.
The 2017 Christmas menu is available for lunch or dinner (£18.95 for 2 courses or £23.95 for 3 courses) and includes a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Each diner will also receive a 241 voucher for use in the new year. Available from December 1st - 31st by pre-booking only. We can accommodate parties from 4-40. Pick up a copy from the bar or visit our website to view the full Christmas menu.
Should you be just passing or fancy popping in on the spur of the moment, we always keep some tables unreserved to cater for you. The à la carte menu runs alongside our Christmas menu, so if you fancy a step away from the traditional, why not pizza and pannetone or risotto and affogato?
For more information, or to make a booking, please call us and ask for Joe or Edyta.
The popular gin menu has been updated and includes some refreshing and exciting new varieties. Choose from the Williams Chase Pink Grapefruit (it really does taste of grapefruit), Tarquin's Cornish (made with homegrown Devon violets !) or the Pinkster (distilled fresh raspberries - bound to become a favourite) along with several others. Paired with Fever-Tree tonic, which now includes the elderflower option, you have the perfect tipple. Visit the website for the full gin menu

£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.
