Best ice cream sundaes in the north east

We only live a short walk away and we did used to go for coffee and a slice of cake, however you know the ice cream sundaes are good when you find yourself having one in the middle of December. The service is attentive and helpful even when they are busy with people coming in from the beach. One... read more

It doesn't matter that the food was nice, I found all bar one of the staff were quite rude or miserable. If you don't want to work with the public, be smiley, pleasant and courteous, then work somewhere else. The manager (don't know who this would be) needs to address this now.

If you want a MR WHIPPY, goes elsewhere, there no taste at all. I would not not not go again, you have to leave 100 words to describe, how bad it is. I sorry to say it simply awrful even the dog would not eat it.

We called in for a coffee after a lovely coastal walk. Firstly we had to clear our own table, making two trips when the 3-4 waiters and waitresses stood behind the counter clearly able to see my clearing. We then ordered at the counter... I clearly asked for a flat white coffee, green tea and 2 scones. After being told... More

Although the staff are friendly and busy this was my first and last visit. My wife and I ordered tea for her, a glass of milk for me and a fruit scone each. An easy order to fulfil but one which took far longer than expected. My wife asked at the empty counter where our order was and an assistant... More

I like this place but I have a few issues with it. Went here for the second time last week. I don't understand why the queue to pay is always so slow; ridiculously slow. Took 10m to process one order! I am disabled and, as I was by myself, the longer it takes, the longer I'm in pain and missing... More

We go to Beaches & Cream most weeks, I think you will find it hard to find a better Café. Yes you have to wait for a table (a good sign if you ask me) unless you're at the end of the queue.. Great comfortable surroundings with a lovely atmosphere. Again the menu is not vast but I say "do... More

Ate here last Saturday for breakfast. I had poached eggs on toast with a nice latte to wash it down with. I have to say every time I come here it is always packed,doesn't matter what time of day it is so you may have to wait for a table. I do think that it's a little pricey here however... More

Visited on a cold sunday afternoon but were greatly warmed up by both the service and the food. Had ordered an afternoon tea, Baked Potato and Cheese Scone and all 3 were extremely nice and very good value. Drinks were fine and overall a really good experience and we are sure to return.
