Just what i would expect on a seafront. Friendly , well priced cup of tea with a perfect view. If you are expecting a well trained barrista go elsewhere. This is a proper good caff.

This is a cafe that generations of my family have been going to, no surprises just cheap nice grub. Lovely view of the sea and dogs allowed.

A true step back in time establishement! Surprisingly food was ok, its a no thrills Cafe not pretending to be anything that it is not. Sad though as lovely location and very busy cafe, but could so be better really. I would have to say there has been little or no money spent on the premises, fittings or toilets in... More

perfectly positioned on the sea front you are pretty much guaranteed footfall so I guess you don't need to try that hard, indoor and outside seating with steps down to the beach makes this very convenient and with the good value food and snacks explains its popularity, we visited on a very mediocre day and it was full.

Have used this cafe a number of times thru' the summer and happy with coffee and flapjacks in a basic enviroment BUT what a mess the outside was today. Absolutely NO excuse - litter everywhere and tables dirty. Staff, when told, were polite but disinterested and certainly had no intention of clearing the mess for customers - a real shame.... More

The fish & chip kiosk is next to the cafe on the seafront. We had fresh cooked fish & chips good size portions of both. Neither fish or chips were greasy. They serve from noon. Drive further along the south parade an pull over & enjoy them with the sea view at the quieter end of the sea front.

Canteen food practically thrown at you by surly kitchen staff. Probably get friendlier service and better food in prison

This cafe has to be seen to be believed and I don't mean that in a good way. As I ordered my tea and toast there were two dogs tied to a table near the backand just barking over and over. The woman in front of me turned to them and said, "I'm coming now, calm down." I found a... More

Part of what makes Exmouth Exmouth! Please don't let the developers take it away! It's charm lies in the fact it's not a chain or pretending to be anything it's not! Great to sit outside with that outstanding view.
