Our Delicious Story

Originally a part of Dawson’s Department Store, Maxwell’s Café Bar was completed in 2002 and has since enjoyed success as a popular venue for locals and tourists alike.

Since opening, Maxwells has expanded to include a heated outdoor seating area and an open-air roof terrace, providing customers the opportunity to make the most of the summer months.

Here at Maxwells we strive to provide a relaxed, friendly atmosphere complemented by fine wines, great food and excellent service.
