Really friendly owners who were kind and welcoming to us and our 3 young children. Great choice of food and drinks, felt very welcome and not rushed to leave. Obviously loved by its regulars. If you want a great English fry up whilst in Poole, head here!

Very friendly owner, Richard. He looked after my husband until I could join him for a very tasty sandwich and orange drink. Well situated in the high street of Parkstone. Shame it was empty but guess the sun has the pull towards the beach.

Food is nice, but im corncerned by the false advertisement of 'free wifi' and the fact that although they probably just refill sauces, All the bottles expiration date is Oct 2014. Decor is 1990s, tables have an awful vinyl cover which is sticky and just looks and feels wrong, staff are pleasant and nice but, the place needs some TLC... More

Parked up in a half hour parking space...plenty of time for breakfast, or so I thought. Ordered and paid and got our drinks quickly. More people came in. Then some more. I was just a bit pi$$ed off to say the least that they got there food b4 us.

I popped in for a quick bite to eat as it was a miserable day, cold,windy and wet. I had the usual brekkie with a mug of tea. The food was okay but the cafe is run down and lools like it could do with a good clean.

Like a good brekkie? Not bothered about the opinions of the health Nazi's? Then the Ashley Cafe is for you. This is a small cafe (only 9 tables) and family run. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. They offer a variety of home cooked dishes but their breakfasts are the best! There are a variety to choose from, all are... More
