Whenever I visit Weymouth I always go here for breakfast. It's in a stunning location and is a really cosy little place to relax and enjoy good good. The cakes are HUGE! :-)

Once in a while I find an establishment that speaks of a world largley lost, where quality and artisan skill triumph over convenience and pure commercialism. At 'Time for Tea' you can enjoy a delicious ranges of meals, cakes and wines in a delightfully small restaurant. Relax and wait for a meal to be prepared just for you - if... More

Don't be mislead by the name of this wonderful French Brasserie.... it's so much more than somewhere just to have tea. Pascal serves the best fish soup I have ever had outside of France - proper French style with gruyère, croûtes and rouille! The onion soup is also authentic and delicious... I've also had his wonderful Eggs Benedict for breakfast.... More

What a find! In the heart of Old Weymouth this delightful little gem served up the best fish soup I've tasted this side of the channel, the French onion soup was perfect, the croque monsieur was a delight. The cakes on display looked incredible, but didn't indulge as we were trying to have a light lunch. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

Had a lovely breakfast and coffee, but was shocked by the cost of 2 double espressos when given the bill...£8!?!!! When queried, we were told: 'an espresso is £2, you had 2 x espressos, twice.' Explained that normally, you just get charged for the extra shot (30-40p) was quite abruptly told by the waitress: 'well we don't!' Kind of put... More

Visited specially for the scones and cakes but having read the menu had some lunch first, we were so full we couldn't order any sweet treats! The food was fresh and full of flavour with a French twist. I had a tuna baguette which came with home made coleslaw and side salad, partner had the croque monsieur, which he said... More

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
