FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where is ARTBOX Cafe located?
We are located at 5-6 East Street in the seaside city of Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. Brighton is a one hour train ride from London, and the cafe is a 15 minute walk away from Brighton station. We are also less than a 5 minute walk from the world famous Brighton Pier, and the stunning Royal Pavilion! We are located towards the beach end of East Street, down from Lush and Paperchase. There are various car parks nearby although these can be quite pricey, and alternatively there is a Park & Ride.

Can I book a table?
We do not currently take advance bookings and we are walk-in only, however we do operate a "virtual queue" system on busy days. When you request a table, our staff will assign you the earliest available slot and let you know the time your table will be ready. This allows you to enjoy Brighton during your wait time, without losing your place in the queue! Your position in the queue will depend on how many tables have already been requested on that day, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment, as all available spots for the day can fill up before the official closing time. Please expect a 1 to 3 hour waiting time during busy days, especially for parties of 4 and over, as seating is limited. Tables of 7 or more require special arrangements, so please make sure to speak to a member of staff as early as possible on the day, and we will do our best to accommodate you! On the occasion that there is no queue, you will be seated immediately. Please refer to the section near the bottom of this page to see when our quietest times usually are.

What if I want take out drinks and ice cream?
We offer hot and cold drinks and ice cream cones and cups to take away 7 days a week, from 11am until 7pm, in cute character themed packaging! Our delicious ice cream is all handmade on site. You can even customise your ice cream with sauces and add-on toppings, including special custom character printed wafers!

When are you closing / when does the current theme end?
ARTBOX Cafe is not a pop-up - we are permanent, so we're here to stay!
Our character theme will change every few months, along with our menu, so there's always good reasons to keep returning to check out what's new. The current theme is "Pusheen ice cream parlour", and we don't have an exact end date confirmed just yet, however we will definitely still be Pusheen themed through all of September and October. Be sure to follow ARTBOX Cafe on social media to stay up to date with theme changes as soon as they are announced.

What food items do you offer on your menu?
Our take out menu offers delicious ice cream which is made on site, hot chocolate, coffee, a range of hand blended speciality teas, refreshing mocktails, and fresh milkshakes made from our ice creams.
Our sit down menu currently offers themed ice cream sundaes and waffles, as well as all of the drinks listed above - served in cute cups and glasses, with a free drink mat that you can take home with you! Please note that the 1st floor seating area is for our sit down menu only, and we ask for guests using this area to be ordering a food item each.

What are your prices like?
The food items on our sit down menu are all under £10, and drinks range from £2.50 to £5.00. Take out ice cream starts at £2.80.

Do you cater to vegans?
Yes, we have many vegan items on our menu! Look out for the "Ve Option" symbol, and be sure to let your serving staff know that you would like your sundae or waffle to be made vegan. We also offer a range of dairy free milks for hot drinks, and dairy free cream for milkshakes. The take out ice cream selection always contains around half vegan flavours.

Do you have any gluten free options?
Yes, we offer many gluten free sundaes! Look out for the "GF Option" symbol, and be sure to let your serving staff know that you would like your sundae to be made gluten free. The majority of our take out ice cream selection is gluten free too. Please note that our gluten free menu items are free of gluten as an ingredient, however if you are severely intolerant please speak to your server - although every care is taken during food preparation, it isnít possible to guarantee the absence of certain allergens in trace form.

Do you cater to people with allergies?
Our sit down menu has symbols to indicate which items can be made vegan (which will also be suitable for people with lactose intolerance or dairy allergies) and which ones can be made gluten free. Our take out ice cream selection also has symbols to indicate whether each flavour is vegan and/or gluten free. For other types of allergies, please ask your server for assistance, and we can provide a full list of allergenic ingredients for each item. If you are severely allergic, please note that although every care is taken during food preparation, it unfortunately isnít possible to guarantee the absence of certain allergens in trace form.

Is ARTBOX Cafe wheelchair accessible?
All of the shopping opportunities and the take out counter are located on the ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. Due to building restrictions it is unfortunately not possible for a lift to be installed to the first floor seating area, however we have positioned a window table on the ground floor, which has table service so you can enjoy our sit down menu. Please note that it can become crowded in the cafe during busy times which would make it harder to manoeuvre a wheelchair, so we would recommend to visit during our quieter periods if possible, for a more comfortable experience.

Is ARTBOX Cafe dog friendly?
Team ARTBOX loves dogs, and Brighton is full of cute ones! We welcome small and well-behaved dogs, and during quieter periods we may be able to accomodate medium pups too, depending on space. Assistance dogs are welcome at all times. Please note that the cafe and shopping area can become very busy, so please ensure that any dogs visiting us are comfortable with crowded spaces, and please be considerate of the comfort and safety of other guests at all times.

When are your quietest periods?
As ARTBOX Cafe is the UK's first dedicated character themed cafe, we can get very busy at times, and this can be a bit unpredictable as many factors come into play including the weather, day of the week, public holidays etc. However if you are looking to visit when it is quieter, we would generally advise to visit on a weekday, particularly Mondays, and avoid weekends and bank holidays. We will also tend to be quieter during school term times. For the best chance of securing a table to enjoy our sit down menu, we would recommend arriving as early in the day as possible - preferably from 11.30am - particularly on busy days.

Who and what are ARTBOX?
ARTBOX is an independent UK-based company made up of a small and very passionate team of people. You may have met some of our core team members manning our pop-up booths at events, serving you in our Covent Garden shop, or delivering sundaes to your table in Brighton! We are dedicated to working with cute characters and brands to provide amazing and happy experiences for our guests, as well as creating exciting job roles for new team members. As a collective, we have worked tirelessly to launch our latest adventure, ARTBOX Cafe. We would like to thank all our guests for their support and understanding during very busy times, and we hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
