Epicentre -noun. A focal point, where things shake up
We are a comfortable café with wi-fi access and 100% vegetarian food that you just can’t find elsewhere in Devon, a bookshop with books to read and buy, and an arts venue that allows the creative community to come together to make, display, perform, and sell their art.
We have regular open mics, song-writing and recording workshops, poetry workshops, radio programme recording sessions, and a lot more to come. Contact us or keep watching the Events page for more details. If you have ideas for other workshops or groups, let us know!
Our menu has expanded greatly over the last few months, with the Mmm Burger, the Westnern Burger, the West Coast Pile Up and so much more.
If you're looking for hard-to-find health-food or just affordable food in Torbay, we run a food co-op every other week. We have access to thousand of products and we aim to help you find what you want at a price you can afford.
Epicentre is something truly different for Torbay. A community minded business aimed at supporting the cultural landscape of our home.

What we do
There are a lot of things going on at Epicentre and even more to come. Aside from the food, drinks, cakes, and books, we're here to support the creative community of Paignton, Torbay, and South Devon.
We stay open late to allow for a different creative workshops from time to time and look to be adding more this summer. Sometimes we have a gathering of writers, sometimes musicians, sometimes film makers. Check our event listing to see what's happening when.
Epicentre also doubles as a recording and mixing studio. We've recorded live demos for musicians at Epicentre, we have recorded live performances with our mobile studio, and we also have an off-site recording studio with possibly the best rates in the area. We work hard to get you the sound that you want and mixing sessions are free, after hours at Epicentre. We're the only recording studio in Devon where you can have fresh coffee and cakes while working on your music.
We are also working on a few film projects and we have a team of experienced film score composers.
There are lots of things going on and lots of things that we can do together. If you have an idea, come to us and we might be able to make it happen.
