Pleasantly decorated and furnished cafe with walls of large paintings for sale. Open spaced interior in pastel with window right across the front for excellent view across the harbour edge of starts only 15 ft away from its frontage. A few outside tables but be wary of stealing gulls if eating food they like! Good scrambled eggs on sour dough... More

Great staff, the most amazing just baked, warm, fluffy scones and my husband said it was the best tea ever. Small and cosy but tables spread out nicely and they also sell other lunch items such as soup and sandwiches.

Great modern tearoom with a view of the harbour. Delicious cakes and good service! We had the cream tea and didn't regret it. They had a lovely selection of other cakes too.
