Our offerings include: - Pizza, Salads, Baguettes, Ploughmans lunch, Hot dog (Served 12pm - 5.00pm Monday to Saturday. 12pm- 3.30Pm on Sunday) - Draught alcoholic drinks: Thatchers gold, Amstel Larger. Birra Moretti and Trelawny real ale. - Cocktails and a wide range of spirits - Coffee made to perfection just as you like it - Hot Chocolate, made with our mouth watering chocolate machine, the best you will find. Also available are espresso cups of pure chocolate - if you think you can handle it! - A large range of fair trade clipper teas - Soft drinks - Wine, spirits, Bottle beer and bottled cider - Freshly baked pastries and croissants

We went for lunch recently and could not fault the delicious food. The restaurant was clean and tidy and we felt it was really good value for what we had. However the waiting staff were not very enthusiastic and the girl serving us didn't know what was on the specials board and what the drinks in the fridge were. We would definitely go back though as the food more than made up for this.

Visited twice during our week - once for breakfast which was well cooked & then again for lunch. There are a variety of breakfast options not just a fried breakfast which made a pleasant change,
They have daily specials & for lunch there was fried skate which was lovely. Had a seafood pizza which was excellent.
Staff all seemed happy to serve & help
Opens late Friday & Saturday with last food orders at 8.30pm

This stops serving food during the week at 4.30pm which is such a shame and would be nice to stay open a little longer

Having popped into this lovely cafe several times over the course of our weeks holiday in West Bay I would thoroughly recommend the delicious food and drink. When it is sunny there are not many things better in this world than sitting outside with a coffee watching the world go by. However I would agree with some other reviewers in that the staff are not at all welcoming or friendly. Unfortunately this marred what otherwise was a very enjoyable cup of coffee and delicious cake!

Dear reviewer I am very surprised about your comment stating that my staff are Indifferent, unwelcoming and not friendly. I would be interested to know what happened because the vast majority of feedback both on Trip advisor and from our visitors book comments on how friendly and pleasant my staff are.
I would be pleased to hear from you via email to understand what happened
Are you sure you are not confusing us with another local cafe?
