In addition to its range of cruise products, City Cruises Poole has opened its own cafe, the Harbour Station Café. Located directly on the Quay opposite the departure point for the cruises, the café provides a wide range of both hot and cold food, as well as an ice cream station. In addition to regular indoor and outdoor seating, the café can also cater for groups and private events as it has a separate area with bar, that can cater for up to 50 people (seated).

Breakfast options are served until 11am everyday but for late risers a brunch is also offered. Light lunch bites range from homemade quiches and jackets to paninis and salads. As well as a range of homemade cakes, the Café also offers a range of Afternoon Tea packages including a Cream Tea, Royale Tea and Celebration Tea. Gluten free and vegan options are available on request.

For groups looking for a day trip, City Cruises suggests combining a harbour cruise with lunch at the café. Whether groups are just passing through Poole or spending several days in the area, the café can be flexible to their needs with possible options including a winter warming meal for groups enjoying the Christmas Tree Wonderland in Bournemouth, a hearty breakfast for those arriving on the early ferry from the Channel Islands/Cherbourg or a relaxing high tea after a day’s sightseeing in Dorset.

The Harbour Station Café is open seven days a week from 09:30 to 17:00 (later on event evenings).
