Central Cross Cafe
The In The Park flagship café, where it all began! The former ice cream hut in Pittville Park is a multi-award winning park café. The philosophy and ideas behind the management team are all as a result of that journey.
The popular cafe has a beautiful outdoor seating area with bike racks and even water bowls for dogs. They serve freshly made sandwiches, wraps and salads, including speciality hot sandwiches, vegan and gluten free options, freshly ground coffees, pastries, sausage rolls, cakes, ice lollies, iced teas, even pic n mix kids picnic bags!
New for summer 2021 is a Sundae Shack serving full range of Marshfield ice cream sundaes, with sauces, whipped cream, fruit, cake and toppings galore. Gluten free & plant based options available and mini ones for kids.
The operators of the Central Cross Cafe also manage The Boathouse Cafe and Boathouse Boat Rental also in Pittville Park plus the Garden Cafe in Montpellier Gardens.
