Lovely lunchtime spot where we booked at the last minute when we visited for coffee in the morning. They had one booking for lunchtime so expected to be very quiet. However, hen we turned up just gone 1pm the place was very busy! They had less staff on than was usual apparently but that didn't seem to make any difference. Service was efficient, friendly and unflustered and the food was great. I had chowder and paella and hubby had chowder and crab linguine. Great choices.

Delicious breakfast to suit grandsons and adults.Snug beneath soft blankets on outer balcony overlooking the beach.
Later Dinner for two inside the cafe was really well cooked, linguine with rocket,chilli, mange tout and Parmesan was light, tasty and beautifully presented. Front of house staff were friendly and professional, thank you.

full English and vegetarian breakfasts were delicious . scrambled eggs with smoked salmon good. brownies were warm and gooey (just how the children like them!).breakfast cooked until 11.00. steps down to toilet. easy access to lovely beach. staff friendly and helpful. i wish we'd had been able to go for lunch and dinner too. if you got the table in the window, i don't think you'd want to move.
