Latest visit was disappointing. Basic menu limited soft drink options. Served 2 glasses of milk to find them warm. Side dressing of salad with baguette raised a smile as this was disappointing. Tactfully advised staff about the milk when I was leaving with my mother. Met with a stance of it wasn't warm and when asked to check it themselves... More

Friendly wee place with a good but limited view of the harbour. Served promptly with weak coffee - tasted like the curse of the cafetiere (using far too little coffee grains). The fish and chips were good but the smallest portion I have ever seen in 60 years - to be fair the price probably reflected the size. I was... More

Visited here today with my son. The food was quite nice - soup for me and a toaster for him - and it's quite a cute wee cafe with a food choice of cakes. However, it took an age to serve us - given it was quite busy. We asked for tap water with the meal and firstly we're brought... More

I visited with family on Wednesday 12th April. the cafe was busy but this was not a problem, always better to eat in a busy place! However the one girl, who was delightful was stretched to the limit and there was a long wait. This was made so much worse by a group of young people who jumped the queue... More

I've numerous times over the last years, and they're very consistent. Sandwiches are always good and the same applies to the coffee. There aren't many seats. And also not a lot ofspaces for parking outside. Service is always good too, although sometimes some of the items on the menu maybe out of stock (which could also be a good sign)

Stopped off for lunch whilst travelling around the coast. The food was fab, hot and cold sanwiches, cakes and icecream available. The service was great too, polite and helpful. Would highly recommend a stop over if you're in the area
