Friendly, family run business on the sea front. I sat outside with my family and dog, we enjoyed our food and had a lovely cup of coffee. There is also an upstairs seating area, so plenty of space. Well worth a visit.

Visited for breakfast with my boyfriend, portions are generous and the quality was high. I was very impressed. Shame there's no parking. And not the cheapest place for breakfast but with a view like that you can't complain! Would recommend and hope to visit again
