Ventnor was a stop on our coach tour. Having learned about the popularity of this picturesque seaside town back in the day and seeing photographs from decades ago, it was so sad to see what Ventnor is today. It has certainly seen much better and more prosperous days. So I have great admiration... read more

Love coming here for a great priced and delicious breakfast with a view. Also pop along in the summer and have a coffee whilst the children have fun in the paddling pool...followed by a plate of hot chips. Can't beat it for cost, well cooked food, friendly service and location on a beautiful sunny day. I also like that they... More

My husband and I had an excellent meal yesterday lunch time but then we always do. The service is efficient and friendly, and there is a good atmosphere. Everyone is made to feel welcome and during mornings and lunch times there is a great choice of food. Cafe usually closes at about 2.00pm in the winter. Some friends eat there... More

Looking for something to eat, late afternoon and all they could offer was cheesy chips and burgers and the place stank of greasy food. Shame because the location was lovely.
