We took a mooring at WicorMarine and saw this cafe as we left. Planned to use it as a pit-stop when we came back to sail away and fully expected it to be a fry-up, greasy spoon type of place.This couldn't be further from the...More

Have been here a couple of times and enjoyed it. Nice coffee, cakes and breakfast menu with a lovely view thrown in. What's not to like.

Always a busy little Cafe that never fails to serve yummy baked goods as well as the perfect cuppa. Really nice venue on a summers day and popular with dog walkers. Limited seating inside on your rainy days unfortunately - think expansion is necessary! !

Fantastic location, with great views. We went here for brunch with the dog and sat on the pier. The menu was quite small but the food was lovely, and the service was really quick.

Great cafe for breakfast and lunch. We went on a midweek sunny day and it was very popular. It is down on the water with seating out on the jetty, with pretty views across the creek and to Portsmouth.
