Exactly as the Cafe's name says you can get an excellent cup of tea (and coffee) here and some delicious homemade cakes too, but the café's name is a bit of a misnomer as there is so much more to be had here. Try a light lunch. The owner is French and adds his own Gallic twist to some of... More

This is a little cafe by the harbour that does the most lovely crab sandwiches ever! It is quite a small menu but everything is freshly cooked and prepared. I am looking forward to trying an evening meal there which I understand they do a couple of days a month.

We came initially just for a drink and ended up having lunch and it was exquisite. The trout and leek crumble just melted in the mouth. The crab sandwiches were excellent. The tartiflette was extremely good. Pascal is a great host and always so charming. The cakes are really good and well worth trying, especially the Dorset apple cake with... More

Having enjoyed sandwiches here in the past, we returned to try their cooked food. A main course of Duck Confit was a little dry and would have been so much better with some form of sauce, perhaps with lentils. Nevertheless, at £8.95, it still offered excellent value. The high point of the meal was certainly the Tarte Tatin. It was... More

Have visited three times this week whilst back in Dorset on holiday. First time my partner and myself had breakfast. My partner had the large breakfast beware it is enormous and everything was cooked perfectly. I had eggs benedict which were very good. Next time we both had crab which is always good value. I've also had the goats cheese... More

Disappointing because they don't open in the evening. We arrived here after walking out of the Gallery restaurant next door. Greeted by a nice smile and chose our seats. Run by a French chef there is quite a small choice that's because he cooks virtually everything onsite to a high standard. We both had seafood soup which was a dark... More

We had a cup of coffee here and noticed the food menu looked interesting so went back the following day. No complaints about lunch I had a generous portion of smoked mackerel on lentils and my husband had salad Nicoise.so pleasant to have different food and a change from most of the surrounding places offering chips, fried fish and pub...

NO GLUTEN FREE CREAM TEA, but somehow TripAdvisor flags this place up with the gluten free tag. In this day and age a single gluten free option isn't good enough for this label. A nut cake I didn't want isn't reason enough to have walked all the way from Weymouth station. The place is ok and this time TripAdvisor is... More

Small menu which is usually a good sign. Simple food prepared well with a French theme. Friendly service, good value for money. No complaints.
