Nice coffee, polite service but oh no atmosphere. Have visited this venue before and hoped for an improvement, if you require peace and a restful break this is the place for you.

Called in here today and ordered fish and chips and a cup of tea. Good service, really clean and the food was served really quickly. The staff were cheerful and polite and prices keen. If your going by call in and give it a try I am sure that you won't be disappointed.

Came across this place while looking for the bank on Hayling Island. Went in for lunch. Staff very helpful. My daughter didn't want what was on the menu, so the chef was happy to accommodate her requirement. We will definitely go back again soon.

Street Cafe in Mengham with outside and inside tables. Friendly staff and efficient service. Visited twice in 2 days, different staff as it was bank holiday, once for cream tea and the second day for a late breakfast. Both days, good food as a good price.
