Lovely little cafe in a converted terraced house opposite a children's park. Has a lovely fire with sofas as well as table and chairs. Wonderful food & drink (particularly the homemade cakes). The few times I've visited it has been quiet (mid afternoon) but apparently...More

Regular visitors to this lovely place, where not all parents are ruled by their children! Wonderful staff have time for everyone but be aware the cakes are irresistible.

Just opposite the park this is a great little cafe. Popped in there and warmed up with a coffee and some cake. The park was very accommodating for children and provided a box full of toys. Coffee was good, as was the cake.

Opened just before the August Bank Holiday in the large ground floor of a big old Victorian terraced house beside West Hoe Park and about two hundred metres from the sea. This is a clean simple modern family cafe with a couple of tables out front near the childrens play area and the servery and several wooden tables inside. There is already a Facebook support page and during the opening week it has been busy on wet and dry days. Easily justifies an entry. There has been a recent small surge in the large waterfront area involving independent small tea and home made fresh cake and snack businesses. Things are looking up.
