Loved by locals, when we can get in! Good honest cafe offerings in an eclectic ambiance. Early breakfasts a must, but watch for the times when the staff are off fishing!

Friendly lovely staff. Well cooked breakfast/brunch which we all made slight changes too and all came out right. Toast and real butter, every condiment you would want, lime marmalade, peanut butter etc. Dog friendly. Very nice indeed.

Dirty inaccessible tables, untrained inexperienced staff, customers packed in like Syrian refugees and right royally striped for three “Smoothies” in jam jars. People were queuing to get in. Personally I think they were heading the wrong way. Only disappointment of a lovely week in Dartmouth.
