After a walk along the pier we decided to sample the coffee and the cookies. The staff were very busy and served with patience. The staff were very helpful with all customers and non customers. The cookies and coffee were great. Stop by and sample you won't be disappointed.

We popped in on the morning of leaving Paignton, for a couple of bacon rolls and a cuppa. Location is lovely, right on the entrance to the pier but it's a little noisy due to the arcade etc. Even though the food was lovely, it was a little expensive compared to portion size, ie 2 slices of thin bacon in...

Such friendly and accommodating staff. We ended up here for tea one night after trying the food at travelodge the night before and being disgusted at both service and quality. We had panini and chips. Delicious, fresh produce and freshly cooked to order. Having also experienced a disastrous breakfast at travelodge we decided to walk down to this friendly cafe... More

The service was polite and friendly, but the food was a disappointment. The veggie ploughmans came with ham (!) and the chips were cold. The tables were sticky and tacky. The views, though, are amazing!!

We ate a brief snack here and it was fine. I had a cream tea, my wife had a ham and cheese toastie. My milkshake was delicious and very refreshing on a hot Saturday afternoon in July. It's just a café at the entrance to a pier. No airs and graces and not trying to be anything more but was... More

When we arrived, we were greeted in a friendly manor! Unfortunately when at table, it was sticky. Finally when the food arrived, my partner spotted a chip fall off the plate, the waitress put it back on the plate! Disgusting!! The fish was the frozen packet stuff and the chips tasted like they were cheap and fried in old oil,... More
