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.

Such a lovely wee place. The cakes all looked so amazing it was hard to choose! Coffee and hot chocolate awesome (went back a second time in one day as it was so good!). I've never seen such a clean and well kept cafe. Right opposite Pier St Park so the kids can play and the cafe has a fantastic... More

Was down the Hoe on a misty day looking for somewhere inside to have breakfast. Came across this cafe opposite the West Hoe playground. Lovely log fire going nice welcome and the Full English Breakfast @£4.95 was a delight. Delicious sausage superbly cooked egg and much more, not a giant plate full but the quality was excellent. Will be back... More

Wasn't planned but stopped in here for lunch, it was very nice but a little expensive for a panini and a coffee-£10.50. Friendly staff. Clean and freshly prepared food. If I wasn't on a diet I would have had a cake but it was probably a good idea I was because I would have struggled deciding which one to have... More

Many thanks for your lovely review of By the Park. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit with us. Just to clarify, our panini cost £4.90 and our coffees range from £1.90 - £2.60 and so would cost roughly £7.00. It seems that an error has been made which we apologise for and have tried to contact you... More

Second visit to the cafe. Reasonably priced coffee and the most delicious lemon drizzle cake. Really like it here, immaculately clean and pleasant, friendly service. Relaxing place to have a chat and something yummy.

I love this cafe! Nicky and the staff are friendly. It is kept immaculately clean with a good varied menu. Children are made to feel welcome and there is now an outdoor seating area which gives the feeling of being abroad on a sunny day! This is a perfect spot next to the park and is a must if you're...

I've only used this establishment once with my wife and 3 year old Granddaughter. The folks here were very helpful and friendly towards all of us. I can't remember what we had to eat, but as I don't recall my visit as a bad experience I can only say that "as I remember it everything was good"

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.
