Visited with friends on Valentine's day just for coffee, nice comfortable chairs served by a really pleasant lady. What more do you require. Will visit every time we go to Hayling Island.

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.

My wife and I have changed to having our midday drinks &/or food at Chives as it appears to be under new ownership from the last time we went in there when it wasn't so good. However, now their hot/cold drinks and the standard of food out of their kitchen has improved enormously and is scrumptious!! We gladly recommend a... More

If its beige watery boiling hot milk in a mug with a dirty spoon, advertise it as such, not as a latte!

I visited this cafe with my mum and my sister. My mum had a jacket potato cooked to perfection, she was happy (that was the main thing!!!) The service was very good and the staff were courteous. The food was of a very high standard, compliments to the chef. My sister and I had a cream tea, the scones were... More

I've been using this cafe for several years with a regular group of friends and we have all agreed that it has gone downhill. The quality of the food is not what it was, the food presentation is poor and consequently it is not always the value for money that it used to be. A cold sandwich should be cut... More

Have visited this cafe on various occasions and at different times of the day. Perfect to pop in for a quick coffee or for a lunchtime snack. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, good wholesome food, although sometimes busy (always a good sign) worth the wait! Would recommend if visiting Hayling..
