Funky little cafe in great spot with view so close to beach. We are here on a busy holiday. Plenty of staff and a beautiful day. The menu is limited but fresh sounding. An hour now and we still await food. It feels like lots of people racing around achieving little. A real shame as we are over it! Get... More

A beautiful sunny and warm Saturday morning last week for breakfast here was delightful. Friendly service although a tad slow (relaxed). Food was delicious except for the bacon that looked like beef - yucky and not crispy. Scrambled eggs were delicious

Have read some of the other reviews and was very surprised to note the amount of dissatisfaction. Perhaps there has been a change of management or something since we went there in early 2013. We stopped off for lunch on a weekday and were very happy with the service, the cleanliness, the menu and the food quality. We certainly did... More

Popped in for Saturday brunch and quickly realised that they were again understaffed. It's either that or they just are overwhelmed in the kitchen. After 15 mins of nothing, we got water and a coffee order in. Ten minutes later a food order was taken and 55 mins after we arrived, two poached eggs on a bit of toast with... More

We ordered coffee and cake for two. The coffee took a few minutes which was fine, but we had to wait a few more minutes for the cake which they should have brought out at the same time. There was bird faeces on the back of the chairs (indoors) which, after getting some on my hand, they wiped the chairs... More

Friendly staff makes all the difference, great affordable lunch menu too. I booked outside weather permitting, 4 of us celebrating my birthday. Due to windy weather, they showed initiative and consideration by reserving us a table just inside the doors, with a view across the road to the beach. This suited my elderly mum well too. Service was prompt, food... More

Only stopped for a cold drink, had a piece of cake which was lovely but the view is just great. Can't wait to go back for lunch some time soon.

Had to go to Beachlands and wanted to find a place for Breakfast nearby and was told by a local to try this place. We are so pleased we did. From the incredible views to the wonderful young waitress this place was first rate. The breakfast we all ordered were wonderfully cooked, full of flavor and well presented. I would... More
