We had breakfast at this cafe during our 3 night trip to Cowes and it was lovely. You can watch the breakfast being cooked from scratch, it was delicious and a huge portion size - highly recommend for any sailors!

We stopped here for lunch after a brisk walk along the sea front. The staff were lovely. The service fast and efficient and the food was delicious. Wonderful salad dressing. Only criticism is its quite a small place.

Excellent service - excellent food - excellent prices. Breakfasts are some of the nicest I've had! Only criticism is that it's a bit tight for space.

We went into Sails cafe for a quick light bite to eat. Sensibly priced, polite and helpful staff. My eggs royale were absolutely fab, perfectly cooked. My wife had a ham and cheese sandwich which I finished and it was excellent too. Great place.

After a long day walking around Cowes my partner and I simply wanted a couple of baguettes with drinks. Sails is not like the big coffee chain establishments-more of your traditional British cafe and thus the service tends to be so much more friendlier. I wanted a cheese and pickle baguette but noticed there was just cheese on the menu... More
