Deep fry less. Serve nice sauces, cheap ketchup tastes of vinegar. Charge me 20p more for my breakfast and serve Heinz. Sort of thing the local Turkish Beano's do and they do not understand either. It ruins the food. Very young inexperienced staff, guess some...More

Always busy here and there is a reason for that. Very good food! Staff work really hard so you don’t have to wait long. Dogs are welcome also. A good choice of seating areas. Either outside or in. Tennis hire also available.

I love this little place ... used to cycle there for breakfast regularly but moved further down the coast and don't get there so often now. On a Summer morning, a fantastic place to sit outside with a sea view. Love it.

Cheap sausages, bread not great, bacon under done,everything deep fried? Dogs everywhere,staff ok, best thing is the easy parking. Amazing location! Better quality sausages and chunky bread would make the world of difference.

I have eaten here a number of times and in the past it has been very nice. The cafe was very busy on this visit and the food seems to have suffered. The whole plate was swimming in oil and when I mentioned this to...More

Reviewed on Feb. Lovely friendly people. Generally food okay but sausages are still revolting. Obviously popular amongst locals.

Located next to the tennis courts in Palm Bay Avenue, overlooking the sea. It's a beautiful location, but more importantly the food is wonderful and the prices affordable. The staff are friendly. I've been going there quite some time and would have put it on here a long time ago if I had realised about your site. I cannot recommend them enough, my husband and I love it there and its not only a great place to eat but a nice afternoon out as well.
