A waterfront cafe has announced it will be closing its doors.

Cult Cafe, a prominent daytime coffee shop and night time music venue, revealed the news last night.

A post published on social media read: "With great sadness, today the sun sets on Cult.

"Saturday April 1 is our last day.

"Please come down. Say your goodbyes and make one last memory with us."

In an update posted just before 3pm, Cult Cafe said: "As the university enters a new chapter of exciting new developments, we find that our paths no longer align and their need for flexibility as their plans unfold means we are unable to take the business forward into a busy Spring and Summer.

"We are grateful for the time we have had and to those who have shared it with us".

The cafe has been based in the James Hehir Building of the University of Suffolk since its opening.
