“Tip top cafe/restaurant with views to match”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

A wintry but sunny January day, we stopped here for an afternoon coffee & slice of cake, & were not disappointed.

The café is clean & well appointed.
The food is delicious and portions are plentiful (so much so, we couldn't eat the whole portions of cake we were served so wrapped half in our napkins to bring home for later !).

The views from every window are amazing & during the summer or warmer days would be a delight to sit outside and have food & drinks to soak up the scenery.

“Great views”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

After a long walk along the beach road promenade this is a great place to rest, refresh and take in the amazing views of our lovely bay. Great coffee and hot chocolate and a good selection of yummy cakes - what more could you want?! Visited between Christmas and New Year this time so had to sit indoors to avoid the weather, but have also been in the summer when you can sit outside and drink in the sun and the fantastic location. Recommended!

“Great for a quick bite.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Visited the Cafe when we visited Portland durign October half term. Although it was extremely windy (probably is alot of the time as its virtually on a cliff top !) the food we had was excellent. we did initially think we would sit down in the restaurant but as it was very very busy and ther was a queue we decided to eat outside round the back on picnic benches overlooking the sea. The rear of the cafe is much more sheltered from the wind.

We ordered crab sandwiches and alos their sausage in a roll. Well... sausage in a roll !!! It was more of half a french stick with at leas 3 pork sausages. Definitely got our moneys worth with those !!!

Would recommend the cafe.
