Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I took my family of 4 out for breakfast. My brother who works away in America always meets up with his mates here when coming home to Blackpool so thought we'd try it when my daughter was home from uni. We all had different meals...- all excellent. My daughter wanted a variation of what was on the menu, this wasn't a problem for them. Friendly staff, we all really enjoyed it. Will definitely visit again. Thanks to Compass Cafe.More

The staff are so friendly. We had breakfast in a pan and I had the kids breakfast. The food was so nice. It was the nicest fry up I've had in a very long time. We travelled from South shore where we are staying to...try it. It is well worth the extra walk/tram.More

Thought I would try the Compass Cafe after seeing a review on You Tube by the Macmaster and local vlogger walk on the wild side. Unfortunately after a night in the casino I couldn't quite fit the breakfast in a pan in. But the ones...I saw looked fantastic. Both me and my girlfriend had the normal breakfast. What can I say. Best sausages ever. The fried bread melted in the mouth. It was definitely an 11/10. Its literally a stone throw from the promenade. If you are in Blackpool, forget Wetherspoons and head to the Compass Cafe.More

l'd seen reviews about the frying-pan breakfast at the Compass Cafe, so I wanted to try it, even though I knew I wouldn't be able to eat it all. It's a lot of food: great value for £10.50 or so plus a tea. I remember...2 fried eggs on fried bread; 2 massive sausages; wads of bacon; hash browns; mushrooms; 2 toast; a pot of beans; and a pot of tinned tomatoes. I ate it all except the last 3 items and one sausage. The quality was top notch. They even managed to serve the eggs runny as well. And a proper pot of tea. This wasn't a Joe's cafe breakfast (for that go to Cookies, or Pitstop). It was the real deal. Kudos!More

Came across this cafe , Outside signage is quite reserved. Inside nice and clean. Very good service. We had toasted teacakes and drinks. Impressed that they offered Non dairy spread for the teacake( they need to put this on the menu). All Day Breakfast was...served to the table behind us which looked really good. We visit Blackpool quite regularly so will be back.More

I'd seen a previous review that resembled a greasy spoon, but it couldn't be any further from the truth and I found that comment utterly bizarre! We visited the Compass Cafe Bar yesterday after passing by and we're so glad we did. The staff were...amazing, extremely friendly, attentive and all really hard working. The food was absolutely bang on and cooked to perfection and some of the best food I've had from a cafe. I had a veggie breakfast and it was perfect. I definitely recommend calling in if you're in the area. We're over 2 hours away, but we'll definitely be visiting every time we're in Blackpool.More
