Spent a pleasant hour or so sitting outside enjoying the glorious views of the sea whilst having a superb cup of coffee and a large portion of strawberry cheesecake. The staff were extremely friendly and the service could not be faulted in any way. There choice of homemade cakes was huge. I heard that it is a popular place for breakfast and hope to return to sample one myself. Highly recommend you visit if you are close by.

On back of recommendations by TA and locals, late lunch here in middle of long walk along coast. Very busy as was a Sunday with glorious weather. Asked for a crab salad, defined served with bread in menu, so asked for brown bread. Bored-looking girl taking orders said did I want a sandwich, so repeated order; told they serve it with ciabatta, no offer of brown bread instead if I preferred, in which case maybe worth defining it in the menu? Asked if ice creams were natural or had additives, told latter, so passed on that. A pity that they don't offer local/artisanal/organic ice creams, but hey ho....
The salad was very good, lots of crabmeat, partly let down by serving in a pretentiously shaped bowl, making it hard to cut anything. Asked 2 waiters very efficiently clearing tables what time it opened the next morning: one didn't know, other not sure, possibly opening times a useful thing for staff to know?
All in all a great place, wonderful view over small bay, with generally good food, and I much enjoyed it. But staff could do with sharpening up, and better ice cream would be appreciated (Available homemade at cafe behind Icart Point car park if you like this too!).

Although accessible by road, the best way to get here is by walking the cliff path from either direction. Lovely little cafe with a very good menu, friendly service and a spectacular view that takes in Herm, Sark and a distant Jersey.

Ice creams and cans of pop sold at a premium through a hatch, with seating inside. There was a large queue at the hatch when I visited in late March, so I decided to sit inside. I was swiftly shooed back outside, and told to order at the hatch and return indoors once I had got my drinks. A high price for no service.

How lovely that this little place was open in March! Lovely place to stop for a beer or a cuppa during or after a walk and they do the local cider on draught - a bonus for the old man!
