Coffee and ice cream

I went here with my wife,step son and two of my step sons school friends. My wife and I just had a coffee and the boys all had an ice cream. The coffee was ok (not strong enough for me) I asked for an americano with a splash of milk. It really wasn't that great,my wife enjoyed hers though. The... read more

Very friendly (unlike some of their customers that I have overheard), the specials board food is excellent. Dog and child friendly. I would say to some reviewers, it's a cafe, not a restaurant. When the Italian girl and Czech chap are cooking its fantastic. I've noticed that it also seems to take care of a lot of people that other... More

My partner and I have recently been here for breakfast. As they advertise on their website they have a nice selection of hot/cold sandwiches and hot breakfast plates. It was a nice sunny week day around noon, probably that was why the place was packed with people. Mostly with people with dogs or babies. Clearly the cafe was understaffed, because... More

Lovely food, great value and the kids were treated brilliantly by the staff. I use the cafe regularly and can't understand some of the other reviews. This is a fantastic park cafe. The staff are always helpful, the food is as good if not better than many of the restaurants in town and at very reasonable prices.

Visited on a very wet afternoon. Ordered a hot chocolate which sadly was quite watery and luke warm. Hot chocolate needs to be HOT. While not rude, the staff seemed a little disinterested in serving & had absolutely no desire to communicate with you, bar telling you the price of the drink. The seating area away from the main serving... More

Lovely looking place from the outside, inside is a bit dreary. Food is very average and expensive. Only good for an ice cream.

There are many seats outside with a lovely view of the sea as you are right on the seafront. Service is good with a welcoming smile. Cappucinos were very nice. Sat here waiting for the Pride Parade to start and all the floats were along here so had a good view of the parade before it even started.

Appalling experience, while the atmosphere and surrounding at first look appealing the food is of an extremely low standard, my partners cheese and onion pasty was mouldy!! and my sausage roll tasted like it had been in the cabinet for weeks! To add to this the choice available was highly limited and the prices are a extortionate for a small... More

The food is good but incredibly expensive for a little local park café. The staff can be VERY surly and not at all friendly. It's ok for a tea or coffee. Prices for those are pretty average. Excellent brekkie e.g. scrambled eggs. , but make sure you've got plenty cash on you. Nice cakes too.

After 5 milk drinks (coffee and milkshakes) the whole family vometing violently. Managed a call to the very hairy manager with dredlocks to tell him and suggest milk be changed, he accused me of lying and hung up. Eat and drink at your peril!
