We visited cafe 19 on most days of our week's holiday. The food is excellent and gluten free selection very good. On our last day they were very busy and we arrived for breakfast. An older lady eventually greeted us. I asked for a table and she turned round and started doing something else. We stood there for a while... More

Went here with friends, who had already enjoyed breakfast and lunch here. They made the reservation for dinner and we now know why. The place is not very big, but has a nice atmosphere. The menu is slightly different from what you expect, but really very nice and all the dishes ordered were delicious and well presented. Staff friendly and... More

We spent the day at the seaside and popped in to Cafe 19 for lunch. The service was good and the menu offered a good selection of food. I had a steak which was cooked well but a bit fatty. I had pancakes with banana and pecan nuts for desert which was delicious. Great place to take the family when... More

the menu was presented as 'fresh'. It wasn't. Before ordering the calamari, I specifically asked the waitress if it was 'fresh', not frozen. She said "mm, (and thought about it), "it's brought in fresh every day". No it isn't, it's un-mistakenly purchased from a supermarket freezer, whether wholesale or Iceland doesn't matter. Batter is thick and calamari chewy. The dressing... More

I had a mixed grill off the 2 course menu which was priced at £ 16.50. It consisted of 1 sausage, a very small piece of chicken and a small piece of steak, peas and chips. I didn't have a 2nd course but even so I think this was overpriced and very average. I also had a beer which was... More
