We stayed next door and popped in on recommendation. We were told it had recently changed ownership. If it was good before, it just got better. Great food, healthy and good variety, all made on the premises. The coffee was made as per request and it was good! The staff were friendly and professional. This place is really worth a visit.

This place had good reviews before, and as we were staying next door we popped in. I think it is just called the Big Wave Cafe now as we were told it had just changed hands in the previous couple of weeks. The coffee and breakfast and test we went back for lunch was great. Lots of healthy options and yummy home made meals and cakes. "Everything" we were told was made on the premises. The bathrooms were spotless, I figure this is also a likely reflection on how they approach food hygiene. My husband is a very picky coffee fanatic, nothing was too difficult!. If they keep up the food quality and the standard of service we received it will not remain a hidden gem for long.
