Since having a boat based in Cowes we have very often taken breakfast and or lunch here. The food is properly prepared for you as you order by very nice friendly staff. The soups and pannini are excellent as are the crab sandwiches when available.

Only stopped here for a coffee. Have to say it was not that great, it was very bitter and had dregs in the bottom of the cup.

Walked around centre of Cowes looking for a waterfront cafe without success so came slightly inland and were left with a choice between Tiffin and Sail and chose the latter because it looked bright and decorated in a way fitting of a coastal resort but also advertised crab on the boards outside. Quite a small shop but got a table... More

Recently visited with friends before heading on the ferry home from our holiday on the Island. There were 9 of us in total including two children, most of us had the breakfast and we all commented on how nice it was, good quality bacon and sausages. Staff were friendly. A toilet would of been a great help as we had... More

This cafe was a delight, the girls were polite and attentive. This little cafe has a good selection on the menu, we tried a bagel, a panini ,eggs Benedict and a jacket potato ( served with butter I am pleased to say !) everything arrived hot and well presented, nice quality food. Very good value for money. Glad we choose... More

This is my goto cafe in Cowes. The Eggs Benedict are very good and they have daily homemade specials. Only 7 tables but one can normally get a seat. Often plays cool music (Dylan, Fleetwood Mac etc)

I stop in Sails almost every Friday lunch time and I really don't know why I haven't reviewed it before. It can best be described as cosy because it is a very small place. They seem to be popular for shakes and ice cream but for me it is the home made chunky vegetable soup. Occasionally they serve other variety's... More

This is a great little cafe, right in the centre of Cowes. Food is traditional cafe fare with full English breakfasts, stews and sandwiches. The coffee is nice and the staff are polite. It's only small so sometimes you can't get in.
