“A Great Afternoon Break”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Had an extremely enjoyable interlude at Mad Cowes Cafe this afternoon. The weather was brilliant, the view great and the Salt and Pepper Calamari was equal to the weather and view. The accompanying coffees were equally as good. Have been here many many times and have never been disappointed. Well done guys.

“Good food but a bit pricey”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Had the calf burger and my husband had the chicken schnitzel. Both meals were delicious but my burger was quite expensive. Good coffee and friendly staff.

“Yummy coffee, nice view”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

I had breakfast and coffee twice this week at Madcowes. Coffee was perfect, and eggs benedict fresh and tasty. I sat in the window overlooking the water, watching a storm roll through, and the next day was blazing sunshine :)
Service is friendly and efficient.

“Perfect, Quiet Morning Coffee”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

It overlooks the beach and has outdoor and indoor seating. Lovely way to start the day! The coffee is good, with many options, and breakfast is varied. It is an easy walk within Cowes and is on a quiet part of the Esplanade.

“Excellent Coffee. Highly Recommended”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This was my first time at Mad Cowes and was pleasantly surprised. The coffee and cake I had was excellent. The breakfasts were the same, the place was near full yet the ambience was quite allowing conversation without shouting. The staff and service was top rate
