Carats great place to go for a drink, ice cream or meal. It has grown over the years and gotten better. The staff are nice and the cafe allows dogs inside. Can be busy on sunny days or Bank Holidays. Outside seating and tables inside. Sea views and great place to sit and enjoy any season. Worth a trip.

I am disappointed at this cafe. We go here regularly. I sent them an email asking whether they offer a gluten free alternative, to which I had no response. It's a shame as my other half loves the breakfast, so i go, so he doesn't go without, but I always get an upset stomach after carefully selecting non wheat and gluten products. For such a well established cafe. ..i feel they should have at least the courtesy to acknowledge my email.

Carats is a lovely cafe along side the beach, with easy access use of public toilets and car parking (small fee council run) We have had breakfast there a Full English which will leave you satisfied and full for the rest of the day! Lunch is great also generous and yummy! It does get busy but the cafe has imcreased its numbers in tables and has recently built a conservatory to sit in so outside eating and inside! Lovely helpful staff very clean and great atmosphere especially looking out the sea as you eat!!!

Have not visited this fab place for a few years but decided to visit early on Sunday morning, they have had an conservatory built on the front with chairs with blankets to keep away the chills. Fantastic view, relaxed atmosphere, Full English was very expensive, I do realise that this was not a working mans café but it was overcooked and around £16 for a full English and tomatoes on toast!! Staff were a bit moody and not very friendly, perhaps it was too early for them!
