Regularly enjoy excellent coffee and cake with a good choice of other drinks. Toasties, sandwiches, paninis etc always delicious and come with a good size side salad. Jacket potatoes are the best especially filled with either coronation chicken or chilli and cheese - mmm! The owners and all the staff are always very friendly and cheerful.

My daughter and I popped in on Christmas Eve to grab a quick bite for lunch. We both ordered a bacon, Brie and cranberry panini and were offered a complimentary shot of Irish liquor or brandy! I opted for the Irish liquor- it went down a treat ;o) As it was busy we had to wait for our food and... More

Popped in out of curiosity and not sure if I will go back again..I went in to see what was on offer and 2 members of staff seemed to be not in the least intetested in me or my potential custom. When one did finally acknowledge me she seemed rather off as though she would rather have been somewhere else.... More

Visited with my parents for a spot of lunch. We were served quickly and the drinks brought over within 5 minutes (despite them being very busy). The food was delicious- panini and baked potatoes. Both served with a small side salad which was a nice addition. Portions were plentiful without being over bearing. The cakes looked delicious but we were... More

Had a meeting here with some friends/colleagues. My colleagues arrived a little before me and sorted out their drinks. By the time I arrived there was quite a queue that seemed to move quite slowly. Eventually the queue went down and when I got to the front I gave the person behind the counter a big friendly "Hello" - and... More

After a walk along Portchester shore my husband and I called here for a coffee. As it was a warm day we wanted to sit outside, as all the seating outside was occupied we went inside to our suprise we found it was air conditioned and comfortably cool. Unlike other stuffy cafes we have visited in the area. Our coffee... More

A very nice wee cafe blighted by the refusal to accept the Queens currency. I am well aware of counterfeit money in circulation and a good way of checking is by putting the note under the ultraviolet scanner and having a good look for telltale signs if fake or not. The staff member took one look at the said note... More
