“Near Titanic Visitors' Centre. Run by teams of volunteers with no price list - just an honesty box - and you choose what to pay. The Dock Cafe serves up award-winning, locally sourced Sukí teas, freshly ground coffees and tasty soups, scones and bakes. There is plenty of space to relax on a comfy sofa, and free wi-fi to catch up on work. There is no price list. They have an honesty box instead and let customers choose what to pay.”
