Great service with a lovely view!

We stopped here to have lunch on a lovely early spring Sunday - we opted for the vegetarian lasagne which was one of the nicest we have ever tasted!

I had lunch here with my family. The food was really tasty and the portion sizes generous. The cafe was clean and pleasant. Good bathroom facilities. There is outdoor seating if you wish. Lunch with drinks cost £33.40. I didn't think that was too bad for the quality provided. Service was prompt and friendly.

On a corner site just opposite the beach, with extensive outdoor seating - which was a good thing because it was a bit institutional inside. However, the crab sandwich was very good and £1 less than at the slightly posher looking cafe just up the road.

Myself enjoyed a delicious homemade lasagne & side salad. Even our 2yr old son ate every mouthful of his fish, chips & peas. Very well priced & a lovely little... More

Found this wonderful cafe on our recent holiday in Weymouth. What a great find. Excellent hospitality from entering till leaving. Great choice of food, excellent homemade cakes and exceptionally clean cafe inside and out. Children very welcome. We ate there every time we visited town.
