Never disappointed when visiting the Black Truffle.. I usually go for a flat white which is consistently perfect and I don't think I've tasted better coffee.The cheese & sun-dried tomato scones are very tasty and the chicken and pesto paninis are equally as nice. Great surroundings, an ideal location and friendly staff make me a frequent visitor to the Black... More

Lovely little coffee shop with a very good selection of home baked cakes which never disappoint. This old Barclays Bank building has been tastefully refurbished to allow an enjoyable experience after a brisk walk along the seafront. The only downside is the size of the main room and the tables and chairs which are adequate but not terribly comfortable. However,... More

This is a lovely place to just chill and have some food. It is set right on the sea front. It is lovely to walk to. It has a lovely little shop in the back with lots of designer clothes and bags
