Description
Cafe Dafte was launched within the flagship Pulman Volkswagen showroom in 2001, offering Pulman customers and the general public a unique experience. Over the years the Pulman Cafe became renowned for its freshly made dishes and baked goods, attracting customers on its own merit. Today the Pulman Cafe has been renamed Cafe Dafte; a unique name to represent a fun and fresh new cafe! Now with two locations within the Pulman Volkswagen and Pulman SKODA Durham showrooms, customers can enjoy a brand new menu with gluten free options.
