We have been visiting Weymouth for many years and have passed by this little gem . Not anymore! All the ingredients are locally sourced , tasty and served with flair. I had poached eggs with local black pudding for breakfast. It was delicious - a cut above all the other restaurants . We then later visited them for lunch later... More

I've visited Time for Tea many times over the years, it is one of many good reasons for visiting the Brewers Quay area, one the best! Small but perfectly formed, a quaint interior takes you back in time. Stone floors, unique artwork and Pascal. Good food, well cooked, from a small but excellent menu. English breakfast with a twist sets... More

This is my favourite stop for breakfast! I come with friends, family or as a couple. It's very understated the service is great and the food is even better! Eggs Benedict or eggs florentine being my favourite! If you like something a little bit nicer for breakfast then this is your place! Lovely location and the best food! :)

Pascal the owner is delightful and takes the greatest care of everything that exits his kitchen. His choice of breakfast dishes make a nice change from the classic fry up. The Eggs Benedict were wonderful. He also has sumptuous cakes, delicious scones and buttery flaky croissants. We came for breakfast and Afternoon Tea and really enjoyed them both.

First visit, had a very pleasant Saturday lunch. Confit of duck was excellent. Onion soup was very good. Reasonably priced. Will use this again on our next visit to Weymouth.

Met my mum for birthday cream tea and thought we'd try here. Seemed a very frosty reception. in fact the first waiter didn't even speak just took our order & left (he seemed to be the owner). Ordered crab sandwich & cream tea, then went & asked after to add soup on side. Crab was fresh but served on thin... More

Me and the wife stopped here on our recent holiday to Weymouth and had a lovely cream tea for two. The tea was lovely and the scones were scrumptious. What made it even better was the view of the harbour.
