Whether you want a quick tea or coffee or something a little stronger or more filling this is a nice place to stop off on your way back down the tower.

My friends and I called in for coffee and cake after visiting the Tower. We arrived just as a window table bacame free so we had a great view across Southsea and across to the Isle of Wight. Between us we had cappuccino, hot chocolate (complete with marshmallows and cream), a pot of earl grey, lemon cake and carrot cake... More

In order to do something different, we chose the afternoon tea package to celebrate my wife's birthday. The package also includes entrance to the tower. We had a reserved table and all those on duty were courteous and very helpful. The afternoon tea was delightful and consisted of sandwiches, fruit scones with jam and cream and a selection of cakes... More

Booked the winter high tea package to celebrate a friend's with. From arrival the whole experience was slick and worry free. We made our way up to the viewing floor a little early to enjoy the amazing views, and headed down to the cafe for the tea. Our reserved table for 4 was ready, in the centre of the main... More

I recently took my Mum to the Café in the Clouds for a birthday high tea. We've been up the Spinnaker Tower loads of times and used the café on previous visits but this was my first high tea and it was a treat for both of us. We went at 4pm so we were there for sunset. We were... More

Stopped at the Café in the Clouds on our way up The Spinnaker. Had a lovely cup of coffee served by pleasant staff. Managed to resist the lovely cakes and was envious of a couple sharing a cream tea.

We booked the afternoon tea before my graduation ceremony as something novel to do and somewhere to eat. A table was reserved for us right next to the windows in the middle which gave us great views out of the harbour into the Solent and of the Isle of Wight. Luckily the weather was great so we could see for... More

This was our second visit to the Spinnaker Tower - but our first to the Cafe in the Clouds for the famous "High Tea" which was arranged as part of a birthday treat for my wife.

Having been to many different places for afternoon tea, we thought we would try something a little different. Neither of us had been to the Spinniker Tower before, however it was easy to get too and although we were very early for our tea they were able to accommodate us. We were seated next to the large window which had... More
