After waiting some time for 2 takeaway coffees. Then returned to ask for extra shots as our coffee was rather weak. Was astonished to be charged. an extra 90pence. Staff seemed very inexperienced with no organisation.

Visited this little cafe on 17th September for lunch. Husband had mega breakfast and I had corned beef pie and salad. Corned beef pie was alright, salad consisted of 2 little gem lettuce leaves, 3 slices tomato, 3 slices cucumber and a few slices red onion. I call this a salad garnish not a salad. Husband's breakfast was very greasy... More

Whilst stopping off in Porthcawl on a tour of the south west coast, we was looking for a great place to eat. Stumbled upon this cafe. Only wish we had carried on looking. We ordered two full English breakfasts and two coffees. The mugs of coffee arrived nice and hot but the mugs where all chipped. A short time later... More

Expensive compared to everywhere else I've tried, coupled with very average food. Only thing it has going for it is location but a shame as right in esplanade it would be good to have more good cafes and restaurants. Professes to be child friendly but far from it - appears to be run by constantly miserable looking short woman behind... More

Had a lovely coffee and tea cake here. Staff were courteous and chatty. We ate outside in glorious sunshine. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Each time I come here, it gets more and more expensive. The painting activities (where your kids can paint a ceramic cup or castle) are pricey and the food is too.

My friend and I travel around s wales breakfasting each week. Tried this one recently and had an excellent breakfast at less than £5. Would recommend trying this place and there is outside seating with great view for the warmer weather! In addition if you take a child there is pottery painting at the rear of the cafe. Going back...

Stopped for a cuppa in the early spring sun. My wife had a lovely cake with her hot cappachino, I had a lovely mug of hot tea. Sat out on the esplanade and watched the world go by

Looked lovely from the outside and the concept was a great idea... But I'm afraid to say my friends and I had a fairly poor experience. Lady who served us was miserable. Food was far from great... Ordered a cheese omelette and got what, can only be described as one egg, scrambled with grated cheese sprinkled on top. My friends... More
