We visited the Lemon Tree Cafe for lunch and found it a little disappointing. On arrival there was no one behind the counter and it appeared that staff were sitting at one of the tables (some) eating their lunch. A couple of the tables had not been cleared away and there was a vase of dead yellow flowers on display ...never a good look really! Unfamiliar with the procedure in the café I decided to go to the counter to place our order. I stood there for a while before I was approached by a young lady who was eating and apologised for doing so. That said, the young lady was very polite. We ordered an omelette and a jacket potato with cheese and a vanilla milkshake. The omelette was very tasty and the jacket potato was cooked well, however the side salad looked a bit sad and the milkshake was overly sweet and resembled a glass of milk. We chose this particular café as it advertised, that it offered gluten free and vegan meals, which is always difficult to come by. Sadly we felt a bit let down by our experience and just felt that it could be improved upon.

Good, friendly service. we had the Red dragon Pie and the paella. The food was microwaved, but good enough, tasty, naturally gluten free, and vegetarian as well.
Not overpriced and in a good location not far from the harbour.

We visited this establishment twice and enjoyed our food on both occasions. The Red Dragon pie was to die for and the vegetable paella sublime. Sandwiches were also great. Didn't try the home made cakes and scones but they looked delicious. Don't let the decor or busy window put you off. Go inside and give it a whirl

Not nice
food bland, blasted by the microwave.
Dirty cups, dull, dirty stainless steel pots.
Left our veggie meals which is something we never do. Risotto and sweet potato pie
No customer service
No asking if everything is ok.
will never go back.
