3 New Businesses Open in Dorchester

Friday, April 9th, 2021

Three exciting new businesses have recently opened up in Dorchester. Each one provides fresh new options for places to eat and takeaways in the town centre. We’d like to wish a very warm Dorchester welcome to all of the new businesses!

Vibes Café

Vibes is located on Weymouth Avenue (next-door to Stems Florist) at Brewery Square. The new caf√© is already proving a very popular choice with a selection of delicious vegetarian and vegan meals & cakes. Why not give a buddha bowl a go or the cheesy jackfruit wedges a try? We’ve heard they are very good!

Vibes Café are also supporting small local businesses with other items available to purchase including vegan bath bombs and soaps.

Funkin Fries

Based in South Street, Funkin Fries serves an American-themed menu including loaded fries, burgers, hotdogs and milkshakes. The new business has been setup by previous managers at Carluccio’s who have embarked on a new venture. The team have lots planned for the future with further¬†outlets to be opened in other towns including Weymouth and Bournemouth.

Funkin Fries manager Aaron commented:

We love Dorchester, it’s a beautiful town with great people, we believe we can add some variety to the area food wise.

You can’t miss the bright new Dorchester eatery with its distinctive signage. Step inside to see a specially commissioned Thomas Hardy inspired piece of artwork created by a local artist.

Follow Funkin Fries on Facebook and Instagram to find out more and view the menu or call 01305 263394.

Hamza’s Syrian & Middle Eastern Cuisine

Hamza’s Cuisine is based in the kitchen of Tom Brown’s pub at 47 High East Street and offers a range of traditional Middle Eastern dishes, including a great selection of vegetarian and vegan options. Using a wide variety of ingredients, always freshly prepared Hamza’s create hearty and flavourful meals.

Hamza’s offered a takeaway-only service during lockdown, but will be soon be able to provide an eat in service in Tom Brown’s, with outdoor seating available in the pub’s lovely riverside garden once the weather gets better.

Hamza Bakkor said:

For the last year and a half or so I have been operating a falafel market stall in Dorchester High Street and at Bridport market, but as Middle Eastern food is so much more than just falafel, I now want to bring an even bigger taste of the middle East here to the lovely people of Dorchester.

It is also important to us to ensure that my business has the smallest environmental impact as possible, so we have worked hard to ensure that all our packaging is completely plastic free and sourced from biodegradable plant based materials. Our paper bags are recyclable and all our food containers and cling film are compostable.

Visit Hamza’s website¬†where you can find their menu as well as a link to order online. You can also order by calling 01305 590777 and follow on Instagram¬†and Facebook.

We wish all of the new businesses the very best of luck with their new ventures. Don’t forget to support local!
