“lunch”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I've visited the Cafe a few times and the coffee and chocolate are excellent, first time I'd been in for a proper lunch was today and the food was very good, my friend had fishcakes and she thought they were the best, came with a nice salad and big crispy potato wedges, my Mushroom Rissoto rice was perfect. The staff were attentive, all in all a very enjoyable lunch.

“Great coffee and hot chocolate”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Always busy this place, been there around 5 times on various holidays. Great coffee and good hot chocolate, with cream and marsh mallows.
Had soup of the day and also a fruit scone - scone had loads of currants and was served warm, with butter. Happy days!
Best coffee and tea room in West Bay and, as others have said, concrete can be trendy!

Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

As a regular local visitor I recommend the coffee at the Ellipse, it really is the best in this part of Dorset.

“Coffee”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you are serious about coffee in my experience this is where you will consistently get a high quality cup of coffee. So much better than what is sometimes served up in the big chain coffee shops.
