Cafe central

Pleasant pedestrianised area of Bournemouth. Has changed quite a lot since I lived here in the 1950s, 60's and 70's.

Nice spot, plenty of tables and chairs available. it's very central so a great place to meet up, if your party wants to go their own way for a while.

The whole town looks like it needs a facelift. Parts of it are so scruffy and rundown, I was amazed that the town has fallen into such bad shape.

Went here for a coffee and snack. Food was good but over priced. Service was average. Because of the location it was busy.

There is no getting away from it Bournemouth must lead the way as a Tourist Resort in the Uk. In the height of the holiday season the City is crowded but even the Square which is in the centre can still be crossed without difficulty. The floral decorations and paved area's are first class, as are the transport links and... More

Always seems to be something going on here especially in August. The water fountains will be popular with the children. Live music in the afternoon and evening at certain times of the year. Lots of places to eat and drink all around it as well.

I can remember Bournemouth as it was several years ago and unfortunately it has not improved with age.
