Very popular sea-front café, serving a very good, if slightly overpriced breakfast. Paddling pool for the kids. I suppose if you consider the location, and facilities, the price isn't too bad... ;o)

Popped in for sandwiches on a very windy Saturday lunchtime. Two bacon sandwiches, one bacon Baguette, one fishfinger baguette and a fish finger sandwich. The bacon went down very well with my friend and her kids, a decent amount of bacon and no gristly bits. Plenty of fish fingers in the other baguette and sandwich. No fancy garnish just real...

We went there last weekend desperate for food and despite it looking shabby we didn't have much choice as it was quite late. The tables were sticky and despite there being 3 members of staff on duty, only 1 poor boy was actually working which meant everything was slow! We both ordered the fish and chips and it was okay...

Thank you for your recent review. I'm sorry your table was sticky. We clearly should have wiped it for you. I'm sure if you had asked one of us would have been happy to wipe it. We sell a lot of cod and this time of year I can assure you it doesn't get any fresher. The same for our... More

We visited here for breakfast on a Monday morning having read previous reviews. The breakfast was lovely all freshly cooked with choice of how you want your eggs. All ingredients were really good quality. Staff and service was good. Best breakfast we have had in a long time. Well worth a visit we will definitely be back.

Our family of four were staying in Ventnor and wanted a cooked breakfast, so glad we went here, the first day was fairly quiet as it was raining, the second time it was packed as it was sunny. Both times the food was excellent and even when it was busy, the service was good and efficient. Would definitely go back.... More

We are regular visitors here and never had cause for complaint. Very nice family friendly place with polite and friendly staff. Great outdoor 'Isle of Wight" paddling area for the kids with good selection of seating. Meals of Hunters Chicken and Scampi were ordered. These were served after not too long a wait and great to know it's all freshly... More
