We often go here when on holiday. The food is a good price and well cooked and presented and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. The cafe always looks nice and clean.

My family visited 3 times in a week, first time mid afternoon then two more occasions for brunch, the café was very busy but with the quality of the food and service its understandable. The service was fast and to a high standard, the food was full of flavour. I would recommend this café as a must visit for a... More

My son and I popped in here for a quick bite to eat (had had enough of the seafood restaurants by this point) as it was recommended by locals, was not disappointed - extremely friendly and personal service from the staff who had no trouble sorting out our food (not an easy task as my son has some rather severe...

We had breakfast here twice. Enjoyed the ambience but not the scrambled eggs which had been microwaved and the toast which was made with pallid white sliced bread...... It's a pretty standard café, but it is nicely decorated and laid out, and with a bit more attention to the quality of ingredients and cooking thereof it would be excellent. Can't... More

We had read the positive reviews so were expecting something special. The cafe was certainly busy when we visited it but I'm not quite sure why when there are numerous other establishments around and the food we ate was nothing more than average. Perhaps the location has something to do with it's popularity as it is the first one you... More

A great little café. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good value and very well cooked. It's "only" a café but it is a great one, well worth visiting if you are in town.

Typical Cafe menu, good service and average value. A real mix of diners - from builders and locals to tourist families (like us!)

It's worth going in to see the interior, all beautifully planned with subtle colours and so much to grab your attention to look at, in the way of seaside decoration. We went back for a second lunch as we really enjoyed the ambiance; the staff are very friendly and helpful, service is efficient, and the menu quite extensive. They were... More

We came across this little café by chance whilst looking for somewhere to dine and what a pleasant surprise it was too, we had two small children with us and they were well catered for with their home made milk shake and extensive menu. The surroundings are likened to a typical English tea room and the staff were very pleasant... More
