We went here for breakfast and we were not disappointed. Staff friendly, food awesome, coffee just right. To have all of this with the lovely view of the sea was lovely.

I live near the promenade and, so, whenever friends come round we have to go to the beach. We then end up getting hungry and going to JayJays. It’s always very busy so getting anywhere to sit can be a problem but the yummy cakes...More
