Staff good, seating good, range of food excellent, but they need to get their act together, quiet mid-week visit at 2pm, ....7 cake domes on show only cakes in 2 of them, losing sales ,and customer choice diminished. The one's we had were very nice , but wanted more choice.

Took partner today for the first time (I've been many times before). Ordered two lots of battered sausage and chips at the hatch and waited patiently, three people who ordered hot food behind us were served so we went back to find out what was happening, they'd forgot our order and didn't seem particularly apologetic, we asked for a refund...

Has a great atmosphere as it is a very busy establishment. Perfectly positioned on the beach. Food and service is good.

The scones and cakes are lovely. The breakfast is gorgeous and the sea view is amazing. Staff friendly, it gets very busy at the weekend.

Went on a week day afternoon with 4 friends and all had a buggy, there was just enough room but was easily 4 more buggies all ready there so felt like we were packed in. Staff very helpful with doors though. Had coffee and muffin, tasted great but was a little more expensive then other places. Best thing about this... More

Bought three hot chocolates and sat at a table outside as had our dog with us. Tables were being cleared and stacked around us at around 4:30pm. Young chap came up and asked us to leave as area now closed and as we had takeaway cups we couldn't sit there. We said we were only going to be 5 minutes... More

This place is excellent! Right on the beach at Longsands and only a couple of minutes from the centre of town. It was busy in February so I can't imagine what it will be like in summer! We quickly found a table and the drinks were very reasonably priced. I would recommend!

I was at Crusoe's recently for a fund-raising night with about 50 friends. It was a brilliant evening all round, with great food just right for the occasion and excellent service by the young staff. Not to mention the fireworks. I will certainly be back with my wife, my daughter and her four children. Thank you Crusoe's.
