Chrysalis Café has a theme, as it is named after the pupal phase between caterpillar and butterfly.

The walls showcase some of the most beautiful and weird looking of these creatures in all their colourful guises with macro photos generously donated by photographers from around the world.


We do not operate a booking system.


Smaller and mini portions are available for our younger visitors, as well as a fun pic-n-mix selection of fruit, snacks and sandwiches in a themed eco-friendly box.

Baby changing facilities and high chairs are all available at the Café.
