“No frills, but friendly service and tasty food”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stopped in here for a quick lunch and was quite pleased. It's not a Michelin-star restaurant so don't expect smart furniture (some have to sit on rickety stools). It's perfect for a quick lunch in a relaxed atmosphere.

Had a panini which was VERY tasty. We also had the soup of the day which seemed to go down very well. Coffee was great.

The staff were hurried but friendly enough and the service was not quick but fast enough!

This is a small

“Fabulous crayfish sandwich”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Not much more to add to the heading - we bought two crayfish sandwiches (to take away) which were absolutely delicious - stuffed full of tender juicy tasty crayfish. A feast.

“Dogs in a cafe?”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for morning coffee and cake. All looks good until closer inspection. The crockery was almost clean but I had to remove what appeared to be an eyelash from my cup, and my earl grey tea was cloudy when I poured it. The stainless teapots were dull and water marked and needed a polish to restore them. The staff were all very young and did not appear to have any clear management or organisation. The worst thing appeared to be their inability to say no when a rather well heeled couple appeared with a dog saying "it's OK to bring the dog in isn't it" marched through the coffee shop to the rear seating area I wasn't very impressed when an elderly couple appeared at the back entrance and asked if it was Ok to bring their dog in whereupon the lady customer said " yes of course!" The staff appeared to be powerless. Now my limited understanding of environmental health and food safety standards suggests that this is not good practice and that regardless of what dog owners do at home dogs and cafes do not mix. Shan't be going back

“Handy for the beach”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

A handily situated takeaway, close to the beach and perfect for nipping to for a sandwich or cup of tea. Friendly staff and they do delicious breakfasts - well worth a visit!
