“Very helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I have mobility problems and find these small cafés difficult, but not this one. Very easy to find a table & sit down. Inside or out. Staff very helpful without being condescending. Spotlessly clean too.

“Worth it just for the views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Hadnt been here before butmet a friend here for lunch and although the food was good and reasonably priced the main attraction has to be the beautiful views over the Babbacombe downs
enjoyable lunch and another one added to my list of places to come again
