This place keeps drawing us back! For several years we make a special visit to have the best large bacon & mushroom bap, possibly in the world! Friendly service included a smile, that seems quite rare these days. See you next year, thanks

Happened upon the Hiker Cafe by chance when visiting Hengistbury Head. We had panini's with salad plus coffee cake for after. Both were good, the cake tasted home made. The only down side was the starlings that mobbed our table - not the cafe's fault...More
