Description: While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.

We love The Lookout. It's just a short (albeit up a rather steep hill) walk from Waterside Holiday Park where we frequently stay, so ideal for our morning coffee and cake, or depending on the mood, bacon sandwiches or a full english. We enjoy this with the fantastic view over Weymouth harbour that The Lookout offers.

The proper lunchtime food is fairly ordinary, but that's not why we visit The Lookout, and view it more as a cafe.

Just spent a week in Preston at a holiday camp and this morning before returning home to Wales we dropped in for breakfast, very clean and very friendly staff, had a quick chat with the owner re sitting outside with the dogs for brekkie and there was no problem at all, food was superb, well cooked and very fresh, the tomatoes were gorgeous, tea was piping hot and nice sized pot as was the cappuccino, definately a place to visit, views from the outside seating are spectacular.

Had a lovely breakfast there yesterday morning, catered for our son who just wanted beans and sausages, it was lovely and hot just one small change I would make would be the make of sausages maybe something locally sourced, but everything else was yummy and great presentation

Walked our dogs along the sw coast path quite a way and stopped here for a drink which turned into lunch. We and dogs were made very welcome (outside, dogs not aloud in cafe quite rightly) food & service excellent, will absolutely visit again.

Stopped off at this lovely cafe with stunning views to enjoy a nice cup of tea with a friend. Unfortunately a large dog came over and started to lick our tea cups - and my friend's arm. we wondered allowed whose dog it was only to be told by the male cleaning the table next to ours that it was his and he does what he likes! We said "not when it's a drink we've just paid for he doesn't", but the very rude man offered no word of apology. What would otherwise have been a very pleasant experience, was totally ruined by this incident. Our minds raced with what else their dogs were allowed to do and will not be returning. I would certainly not recommend to anybody who values a clean establishment and good old fashioned cstomer service!!!
