Hucksters Cafe


CLASSIC 50s STYLE. CLASSIC 50s TASTES – SHAKES, CAKES, BAKES & DAMN FINE COFFEE!

Hucksters Cafe in the Helensburgh Heroes Centre

Designed in the classic ’50s style – blue seating, bubblegum pink walls, think Arnolds in Happy Days –  Hucksters Cafe provided a unique, relaxing yet vibrant place to chill.

Named in honour of Deborah Kerr’s breakthrough American movie ‘Hucksters’, Hucksters offered great tasting classic cafe fayre – from cheesecakes to thick shakes to ice cream sundaes.

The film starring Clark Gable and his ‘New Star- Deborah Kerr (rhymes with Star)’ was a Classic 1947 movie about the fledgling advertising industry, and also featured Adolf Menjou, and Sydney Greenstreet.

Once in Hucksters, visitors were able to relax at a table or perch on a stool, shake in hand, taking in some of the original Deborah Kerr film memorabilia on display. And as with all the classic diners, you could watch your food being prepped for you.

The authenticity of this venue, the cool atmosphere, fantastic food and friendly service quickly put Hucksters on cafe map and was, judging by the feedback, a real hit with both locals and visitors alike.

Opened Monday – Saturday, Hucksters cafe provided the perfect hang out for folks of all ages who want somewhere to relax, share great food and soak in some of that old fashioned Hollywood magic.
