Very good (shared!) veggie breakfast

We shared a veggie breakfast for a lunch time snack - recommended! Good food and service and a nice spot to eat.

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.

This is a good cafe with a nice location. Great in summer to spend time while the kids play in the paddling pool. Typical English cafe food at very reasonable prices.

Forgot for a moment the efficient and friendly staff, the good food and the pretty building at the end of the Ventnor Esplanade - this place does fish finger sandwiches! I don't want to make a big thing about the fish finger sandwich thing, but in more than 50 years it's the first time I've come across them anywhere else... More
