“Lovely Cream Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

We went to Cafe Explore for a cream tea, and were not disappointed. The scones were large compared to a lot of other places and the jam and clotted cream were served in small size glass tea cups making the presentation of the cream tea special. The view from the terrace is calming over the water and made us feel like we were on holiday.( we live locally) Also the friendly welcome and service given, by the member of staff, made this an extremely pleasant visit. We will definitely be calling in again.
The museum is also worth a look. lots of interesting things on display

“Cultured coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

What a fab way to spend an afternoon on Poole Quay. A visit to Poole Museum that is totally free and then a delicious afternoon tea at the new cafe on the 3rd floor. Not sure what was best - the harbour views or the famous triple chocolate cake served with a smile by Lily. I'd really recommend this to anyone who wants a different cafe experience.
