We popped in here for a breakfast and nearly turned around again...wish we had. Even with just a quick cursory glance the place looked grubby and mucky.

Excellent quality and very good portions. Great value for money. Friendly service and really clean. Nice 'retro' atmosphere without being old-fashioned. We would definitely go back and hope to actually stay there next time.

Sweet little cafe with very friendly staff. Food was excellent, jacket potatoes are big portions and ham sandwich made with gammon. Extremely great value for money. Had the chocolate cake with was lovely, only slightly sickly due to the large portion, but so nice I couldn't waste. Would certainly visit again

The cafe is wonderful, the staff friendly and great to talk to. The food served is all home cooked, and of top quality, very nice place to have some food and only five minuets from the front. And for the kids, there is a train that runs around the top of the room on a shelf, keeps all the kids... More

Popped in here for lunch after our trip to cowes. It's on the high street so not to difficult to miss but there are a selection of places to go to. The veggie options encouraged us to go here and they were really pleased we did. Big jacket potatoes with loads of fillings, nice eggs and a good breakfast. Left... More

Service was great, a wasp decided to take a drink of my coke mentioned this to the lady at the... More

Considering it was Cowes week the prices were excellent compared with alot of places who seem to put their prices right up. Had a Sunday dinner first time and a... More

Some of the best home made cakes I have ever tasted in my life - and such a huge array of them to choose from, too! Staff are very friendly and welcoming indeed, as well as extremely helpful! I will definitely be coming back!
