“Lovely cafe, home bakes, beautiful view”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Recommended to us by a lovely lady we met on a bench. Good down to earth cafe with proper baking. Lovely and relaxed sitting out on the large terrace. Made my (already great) day.

“If the flag is up they are open!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I am almost reluctant to leave this review as you may take the last available seat on the terrace! The clock cafe is not fine dining, it's egg and chips, cup of tea and a slice of cake, type of place, and I love it. The view is just stunning across the South Bay, great to sit out and while away a happy hour, your dogs and children are all welcome the more the merrier.
You will have to queue to make your order, and only one ladies toilet can be mildly inconvenient, it is amazing the great people you meet whilst waiting!
You can approach it through the South Cliff gardens or by walking past the Spa or indeed the cliff lift from The Esplanade will drop you almost to it's door.
It has easy access to the beach and rock pools.
PS If you are at the top of the cliff and you want to know if the cafe is open, look for the union flag, if it's up they are open.
