A most unpretentious, high quality cafe, next to the art-deco REX cinema in Wareham. Lovely staff and great quirky film nostalgia to add to the atmosphere. A real experience...... Thank you everyone Dominic Santini The Hardye Wrinkly Bikers

It turned out to be a charming unpretentious small cafe but the standard of food and presentation was truly delightful all produced on site and homemade with great care and attention by... More

The Five and Dime is a small cafe with a nice atmosphere and a 'movie' theme. I had bacon, sausages, eggs and beans. I didn't want the tomato so they brought me extra beans. The toast was fresh, the coffee was good and a good strength and the bacon was thick cut and locally sourced. The eggs were nicely 'over... More

I love this cafe! It is right next to the wonderful, Art Deco independent cinema 'The Rex' in Wareham. A small downstairs room with several tables leads to a corridor from which you can go upstairs and eat/drink also. It is decorated with vintage cinema photos. The seating is rustic and not that comfy but the ambience is great and... More
