The opening times/closing times seem to be eratic and I have gone to eat there only to find it closed. Food good and atmosphere good. Seats are rather heavy and hard. Toilets are outside and up an alley....??

The only down side is when its full of holiday makers and the locals dont get a look in as they will only serve... More

Popped in for breakfast today on the recommendation of a friend, have to say that I was not disappointed! I was warmly greeted by the staff, ordered a breakfast which was cooked quickly and was truly delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and the decor delightful! Will be visiting next time I'm in Bude.

Had a disappointing lunch at this cafe. When we arrived it was about half full. I had to ask for a highchair and was told we'd "have" to fold down our pram if we wanted to eat here. There was a lot of huffing involved from the man front of house (manager?), who eventually agreed where I could leave the... More

The food was not as nice and there was no atmosphere . Twice before we have been overcharged so on checking the bill this time it came as no surprise to find that we had... More
