Would not be out of place in a Parisienne Square

Time For tea is a Brasserie and Café which last changed hands in 2004. It is primarily open for breakfast, brunch and lunch but does sometime open in the evenings at weekends. It looks quite small but is on two floors and has some outside seating. The kitchen is the size of a large broom cupboard... read more

I went here with friends just this last weekend and can honestly say that I had the best pot of tea and slice of cake that I can remember, the staff were excellent and the proprietor asked if we were ok and if everything was ok? Even down to the crockery being plain white China, excellent marks for everything and... More

We had lunch here - the crab baguette was good but we thought the fish soup was probably from a bottle. The real disappointment was the bottled Jurassic beer - one bottle was definitely off but when we told the waitress she simply said "Sorry about that" and moved on. When my husband paid the bill he told her he... More

A delightful little restaurant serving some wonderful French classics. Our family group had a very tasty lunch here. We were able to sit inside with our baby in her carrier/papoose with no problems. Some wonderful homemade cakes too! Looking forward to a return visit to try some more 😊

After reading good reviews on here, we thought we'd try the place out. Upon arrival my husband attempted to enter the restaurant with our child in a pushchair. Instantly a young lad came over and said we couldn't bring the buggy inside. Not a great welcome. My husband explained that once we got our son out of it, we'd fold... More

What a cracking little bistro! My wife and I stopped here for a cream tea with our baby daughter and it was an outstanding experience. The scones were big warm and fresh. The service was brilliant and very friendly. I highly recommend this place and will definitely eat here again when we next visit Weymouth.

The name of this fab little bistro is perhaps a bit misleading as it is anything but a tea shop (although that is available. It is a brilliant little shabby-chic French restaurant just off the old harbour. The menu is not extensive, neither is it expensive but the food is excellent and after a few minutes with a glass of... More
