We popped in for tea and cakes on a recommendation and we certainly weren't disappointed. In fact the opposite and I only wished we lived nearer. Leaf tea and delicious cake served to us by attentive friendly staff. The decor is brilliant and so interesting. Will be back the next time we're visiting Southsea.

We went here on the advice of our B&B owner and were not disappointed. It has a relaxed atmosphere with an interesting menu. There is no licence, but a good selection of lemonades and juices. The cake selection was wonderful and we thought it value for money.

Went in with my partner for a breakfast and was impressed by the decor, food and most certainly the superb milkshakes! The best I have had without doubt. The only slight downfall is the staff seemed quite slow with service, clearing tables and the food and drinks took quite some time to arrive despite it being quiet. I would however... More

A nice place to meet for a coffee and a chat in Southsea. I did only order coffee, which is similarly priced to the chain stores. There were a wide variety of cakes on display though for connoisseurs of sweets.

Came here for a brunch with my mother. I love the decor of the place and have been wanting to try it for a while. I ordered poached eggs on sourdough and added some extras like avocado and tomatoes and was pleasantly surprised to not be charged the earth to have extras. I didn't have to wait too long either...

Stopped off to dodge some heavy rain showers, from outside the establishment looks inviting, however it could do with a bit of a spring clean, we sat by the window and the cushions that runs along the length of it are grubby and stained. Service a bit slow, received our drinks about 5 minutes before our cake arrived, tea was... More

Had a fantastic brunch in the Garage Lounge. A beautiful old shop in Portsmouth/Southsea with original fittings and mis-matched cups and saucers. We had the Garage Lounge breakfast and my word was it filling. Eggy toast, chorizo sausage (which was soft and tasty not hard like chorizo sometimes goes when its cooked), a lovely fresh fried egg, a pretty little... More
