My husband and I arrived at a busy time with no booking. Staff accommodated us with places at a shared table, which was fine. All tables had a lovely view of the marina. We ordered the folded eggs with beetroot, and the almond granola which...had lots of yummy fresh ingredients. Both were quickly made, beautifully presented and truly delicious! Will definitely return if we're in the area again.More

Really average food. I saw the good rewievs and the nice scenery and thought I'd try it. However I regret bothering to drive out here. Average. Kids menu very limited and had to ask for it. Husbamd had a cuban sandwich that was so oily...with fatty meat that it made him sick. Mine was the 1 sad poached egg on top of hummus and 3 asparagus with sprinkled chia seeds. So average. Tasteless. The one thing that saves thus cafe or restaurant is that there are no other competitors.More

Have been disappointed the last few visits but tried again and very happy. Menu back to hard to pick and every dish ordered was delicious. Staff friendly and position can't be beat. Looking forward to returning very soon. So much more I want to try.

Ate here as a group with child and left pretty satisfied. service was prompt, eager to please, introduced themselves and was willing to share a joke. Food was generously portioned and well prepared and we were advised that pancakes would mean a fifteen minute wait,...coffee and child's cake arrived earlier so all was good. Prices seemed slightly higher than in the City for equivalent food but generally would happily recommend a visit.More

Very impressive. Nice cafe with a pleasant bay outlook. The food was bordering on outstanding. My charcuterie board was absolutely faultless. A perfect size with a lovely range of bread, meats, cheese and greenery. The Turkish eggs were also very good. The coffee to finish...was excellent too. Service was utterly charming too. Highly recommended.More

The fish and chips are a good choice for lunch.The location so close to the water made it very special to have lunch at this location

Good outdoor and indoor seating, with a good menu selection. Charcuterie could be a little more generous in portion sizing. Two slices of salami and a small wedge of pressed meat does not a charcuterie make.
