“A real cafe.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Does what it says on the tin. Great value, service with a smile, big breakfasts. On a budget ? good place to go. First place to visit when coming off early morning ferry. Get some bacon and eggs down yer with a mug of tea or coffee. Easy parking opposite on Victoria pier.

“Greasy breakfasts”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I walked into the Harbour Cafe just last week because a relative of mine has come back from Edinburgh. We had our breakfasts here and we were very, very disappointed from the fact that the sausages had minimal meat and the toast was soggy. The tea was just like dishwater and I couldn't drink the whole cup. Also, the picture on the wall was very inaccurate. Much more of a disaster, it was a bombshell of a site.

“A warm welcome”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

had breakfast here on a wet and windy day. Service was great and the food plentiful and hot. Only complaint was the veggie sausages, I could have used them as missiles! Tip-ask for the veggie breakfast minus the sausages!

Great to watch the seals at play while eating well. Good choice, well coked. Great fish cakes. Nothing to dislike.
