We paid a visit here after a walk along the beach, originally for drink but when we saw the amazing display of cakes we could not resist them.

They certainly tasted as good as they looked, so this is definitely on the revisit list.

we visited here on a very hot day. Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, even though they were extremely busy. Delicious ice cream yum yum

I stayed with my family above the Cafe and had breakfast, lunch and snacks during our holiday here. The Cafe is always clean, the staff were very helpful and pleasant when we visited, the food was lovely and the views FANTASTIC! We have been visiting the area for many years and always end up back here even if only for a coffee and slice of homemade cake. Hope to be back later this year.

Visited here for a change for some breakfast. Food was good and the service was friendly and fast. The staff didn't bother us while we ate which is a plus in my book! Recommended
