We always come here when in Yarmouth and the food and service are always very good. The Cafe is quite small and cramped but in a way that's part of the appeal and creates a busy and bustling atmosphere. We visited in early afternoon, and I had the crab and prawn baguette which was decent value, and then a large... More

Gossips has always been fast service and good food. The position of Gossips always lends itself to a minghellas icecream with the kiosk adjacent to Gossips. A walk down the pier afterwards is always a good idea

The café is near the ferry terminal on the Isle of Wight. We sat next to the window from where you could look out over the Solent. The food is prepared on site and is very good indeed. For the same food nearby you will pay twice as much. This place has atmosphere. It makes me smile just to think... More

Called in for afternoon tea whilst waiting for the ferry. The menu is extensive and the prices are reasonable. The cafe is very clean and the staff helpful and service was quick. The location by the pier and on the waterfront is great. We had a pizza, ploughmans, pesto pasta,jacket potato with cheese and a tuna panini and all were... More

Fantastic little cafe by pier in yarmouth. Huge choice of menu and beautifully cooked and presented. A little slow in serving but well worth the wait. Lovely comfortable seating inside and nice tables outside where can take dogs. Absolutely delicious and fresh

As we missed our morning ferry, we decided to kill some time won a wet Monday morning with breakfast at The Gossip Café. We've eaten there before and the standard of food and service were as high as ever. The staff are all so friendly and polite and very efficient at clearing tables away in readiness for the next diners.... More

Easy level access, adjacent toilet. Tables are close together so it's a bit difficult negotiating round the tables with a wheelchair. Quickly served with a delicious 3 bean chilli. The chilli was just spicy enough but, strangely, the rice was warmer than the chilli. Ciabatta panini with cheese and red onion chutney was very tasty, served with coleslaw and a... More

We were on the look out for an afternoon snack and I was particularly keen to go for a crab sandwich and cup of tea. We stumbled on the Gossips Cafe situated at the landside end of the long, wooden pier (closed to the public the week we were there). There was a good choice of snacks and beverages. I... More
