Opened just before the August Bank Holiday in the large ground floor of a big old Victorian terraced house beside West Hoe Park and about two hundred metres from the sea. This is a clean simple modern family cafe with a couple of tables out front near the childrens play area and the servery and several wooden tables inside. There is already a Facebook support page and during the opening week it has been busy on wet and dry days. Easily justifies an entry. There has been a recent small surge in the large waterfront area involving independent small tea and home made fresh cake and snack businesses. Things are looking up.

Nothing is too much trouble in this delightful and relaxed Deli. I've had delicious breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas with friends, family and my partner and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. (I've tried to resist the choice of mouth-watering home made cakes but always fail, thankfully!) There's a log fire and comfy sofas and outdoor... More

Went here for lunch and had a lovely brie and beetroot Panini. Also took away some of the excellent homemade Lemon Victoria sponge....delicious! Very nice coffee also and very good service so all in all recommended.

On horribly mizzly morning called by at about 1100 for coffees with friends. By 1215 the place was buzzing, and is clearly very popular. Had an americano and later an elderflower crush (delightful) with a BLT and wife had pannini with brie & pear chutney. Whole place was clean and fresh, and service was good. The placing of tables and... More

Going to Cafe By The Park in West Hoe is just as I remember going to see one of many Aunties. Everything is Fresh and the majority home made by the Proprietor. You are made to feel very welcome and the Cakes are delicious and very very reasonably priced. The coffee is very well made - yes, coffee can be... More

This cafe is tucked away on a side street opposite West Hoe children's play park but well worth a visit. It has recently been revamped and expanded with an outside seating area at the back. Recommend the home-made cakes!

This is a lovely place to visit for food and coffee. You can sit outside now too. The cakes are simply delicious and the decor is very clean and modern. Super!

Another visit to this homely, welcoming cafe. It has recently been extended and this has only enhanced it's appeal. It now has a wonderful, sunny (not guaranteed!) outside patio area for enjoying your food in. The food is fresh and all the cakes are homemade. We had a delicious afternoon tea after a tasty lunch! Children are welcome and well... More

Popped in for breakfast, which became brunch. We were served quickly and a huge breakfast baguette and bacon sandwich were soon delivered. Extremely tasty, we were filled up until dinner. We sat by the window but there was ample seating outside (front and back.) A really convenient base for the near-by play parks and walking along the waterfront.

We have eaten at this cafe on several occasions and found the food to be fresh and tasty. There isn't a great selection on the menu (mainly light bites), but we prefer there to be less choice but more care taken over preparation, which this cafe obviously does! If you have a sweet tooth, the victoria sponge (with real cream)... More
