skipped breakfast for a surf, very hungry at noon - no problem. I got exactly what I wanted. Friendly guys, no nonsense, and a great quality breakfast. "Ma's gourmet" was plenty enough - as promised. Then moved on to several courses of rehydration via three fresh fruit / veg juices. All excellent... read more

We thought we would give this place a try after hearing rave reviews about it from sone of my local friends. We had a cheese and ham omelette with chips and eggs benny, vit sea juice and a coffee which came to just under £20. Food was enjoyable and the juice was delicious and fresh, price was a bit steep...

Recommended by our host in the apartment we stayed, this place was easy to locate. We ordered the Eggs Benedict, with Jacket Potatoes. We were 2 adults with 2 kids. The plates were empty not a morsel left. The Eggs Benedict were so fresh, you could actually lick your fingers. Never had better ones.

We went there for breakfast based on the reviews and left feeling very short changed - we ordered eggs benedict - I only wanted one egg but was told I had to order as per the menu and have two. At £7 a pop it was expensive and the ham was cheap ham, already chopped up for filling omelettes. Juice... More

I ate here over the weekend, the cafe it's self is nice inside although a little cramped, tables are very close together. There was a lady at the counter and we assumed you ordered there although this was very unclear. The waitress seemed very uninterested, no eye contact or even a smile. You have to take napkins and cutlery yourself... More

Lets get this out of the way. I apologise profusely if there was a finger print on your plate. But the rest of your review tells me everything about you. A moaner. Our service has been this way for 30 years. We are extremely busy and certainly don't need TripAdvisor. Quote "you couldn't see how this service is necessary". You... More

This is a funky little diner with a no nonsense breakfast menu. The food is cooked well, and the customer service is friendly and relaxed. Well worth a visit for a tasty fry up.

Went for breakfast which is served all day, I didn't fancy this so ended up having the steak sub which was amazing. The gentleman that served was polite and efficient having a joke with us. The breakfast was also amazing so I'm told and believe I will have to partake on our next visit. Thanks and see you again soon.

Nice retro cafe that I thought was on or very near to the beach but sadly was on a small side street. That said the owner did go out of his way to accommodate a large family and dog. So well done.
