Da Ninos is a lovely Italian cafe and takeaway in Southbourne run by Tracy and her husband, Nino. Da Ninos makes homemade Italian food, including pizza and pasta, with a seated area and home delivery service.
You can eat in or grab a takeaway at Le Munch and tuck into an all-day breakfast or choose something from their lunch menu.
And, at Dicky’s Bar & Brasserie you can sit back and relax with a glass of wine while someone else does the cooking and washing up. Dicky’soffers local fresh cuisine and a wide selection of dishes with European influences, including vegan and vegetarian options.

“Hello, my name is Michael, and I run a fabulous Café (Le Munch) with my business partner Tim.
Supporting our community with our venue and time has always been at the heart of what we do. Our cafe hosts support groups, creative activities and much more.Being part of the Carers Card project and contributing a 10% discount to non-paid Carers made sense.
Many people could benefit from recognising themselves as a Carer or knowing where to get support. By displaying leaflets and introducing customers to the Card, we can help spread the word and help more people.”
“We (Da Ninos) decided to join the Carers Card project to contribute a 10% discount to all registered non-paid Carers.
I provided Care for my mother in the later stages of her life. You do it because you love them.
As a busy business owner, I didn’t have time to consider the support that could have been helpful to me. Like so many, we are managing ok.
Supporting this project is a small contribution to showing our community’s Carers that they are valued and cared for.”
