A much-loved Ipswich town centre cafe has announced it will be closing its doors at the end of July in what was a "heart-wrenching" decision for the owners.

Hullabaloo has been open in St Peter's Street since 2019 and was the first plant-based café to open in the town.

Owners Jennie Debenham and Jon Halls announced they will be closing their café in July.

In a post on Facebook, they said: "To all our lovely customers, we are posting with the sad news Hullabaloo will be closing its doors in St Peter's Street at the end of July.

"It has been a heart-wrenching decision, we love all our beautiful customers and have put our heart and soul into creating this vision for the local community and ourselves.

"We will, however, reach the end of this existing road and are choosing to devote time to a new vision and our family.

"We will update you on plans as they evolve but at this stage, we are envisioning a more rural location with space for children, educations and events, where the cycle of growing, harvesting, cooking, eating and composting can be realised and enjoyed by all.

"We would love to see you all in the next few months and will be holding a few goodbye events.

"Thanks again for all your amazing support, it's been awesome being part of The Saints family, we love you all."

Over the past few years, Hullabaloo has been a celebrated venue in Ipswich - winning awards such as Best Café in the Suffolk Food and Drink Awards.
