This is a special café. The décor is inspiring and always makes me wonder what I could put up in my own kitchen to decorate and the food has always been good. I have always been for breakfast and enjoyed the coffees, granola, eggs and also a full English on different occasions. It risks being a teensy bit cramped, but I don't mind that for breakfast - not sure about later in the day? The service is ok - I would not say it was a great selling point - acceptable, but not fantastic - some of the waitresses could do with being a bit friendlier, but it's ok - does not add to the experience, nor detract. It tends to be somewhere on my top list for breakfasts and a gossip! Lovely setting and food is good.

We had a absolutely lovely breakfast at stop the world. I have only ever had breakfast there so I don't know about the rest of the menu but from what I have experienced, Stop the World Cafe is honestly one of the best restaurants I have been to! The service was exceptional and all the staff served with a smile. The food was lovely ( I normally have the yummy pancakes with syrup) and the selection of drinks is great too. The atmosphere is great and its lovely to sit outside on a sunny day and see glimpses of sea views. I would definitely recommend it and there is nothing negative I can say about it. :-)

I love this cafe! I only ever go for tea and cake so can't really comment on the rest of the menu. The selection of cakes is excellent. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and it's nice to sit outside on a sunny day. Would definitely recommend a visit, or two!

This quirky English tea room has become a regular haunt of ours! We love the food - always freshly prepared, interesting dishes with great flavours.

Lots of different teas and coffees to choose from.

The staff are fantastic, they are child and adult friendly.

Great if you are meeting someone for breakfast or lunch; tend to meet friends for breakfast and eat our way through to lunch time.

Fabulous place - love it and would go time and time again!!!

Love Us xxxx
