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

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!

...though a bit expensive for a cafe. The food is of good quality and all responsibly sourced however. Also their loyalty card scheme is quite stingy; 1 stamp per purchase, so even if you buy 4 drinks you only get 1 stamp.

We had a great morning in the beautiful park and were going to only have a drink, but got tempted by the quiche. Really tasty and the staff were very helpful and friendly, a definite thumbs up for a very good excuse for a morning in the park.

I visit this wonderful little cafe most Saturday mornings after running parkrun which is held in the park. Despite there being 450+ people running there as well as numerous spectators and other park users all wanting coffee the friendly staff are very efficient and get everyone served quickly. I've not had a full meal here but they do have an... More

Was awful, milk in my milkshake was out of date and over priced. Chips were cold and tasted horrid, ketchup bottle at the top was dirty, the person I ordered my food from was moody and unfriendly and got my order wrong
