“Lovely friendly coffee shop”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We visited La Cuisine at Port Solent and found it to be delightful with friendly staff. They have a large range of lovely cakes. I had a skinny cappuccino and a piece of their carrot cake which was delicious and moist, my husband had a latte and scone, butter, jam and cream which he thoroughly enjoyed. We sat inside as it was a very fresh day, but in Summer they have tables outside overlooking a private marina - the coffee shop is at the end of the Boardwalk at Port Solent so it is a great place to go for a relaxing coffee after a stroll around.. They do breakfasts and light lunches as well . The coffee shop also sells kitchen bric-a-brac which is displayed around the shop which makes it interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend.

“Light lunch”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

My cousin and I were wandering around Port Solent looking at the yachts and came across this little gem of a kitchen shop which also serves the most delicious snacks and home made cakes. As it was lunch-time we were getting peckish but didn't want a full meal so the menu on display was just what we wanted. We were not disappointed; I chose the soup of the day which was leek and potato. It was obviously home made, full of chunky vegetables, rich and delicious in flavour; served with a freshly baked baguette and butter. My cousin plumped for a crusty baguette and smoked mackerel pate. The service was pleasant and tea-room bright and pretty. The cakes on disply looked mouth watering and I am sure we will be returning to try them.

“On a Sunny Day in Summer”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Visited Port Solent On a lovely summer day and called into La Cuisine for Coffee and Cake. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the range of cakes impressive and a table outside in the sunshine was ideal. Having said that, there is plenty of room inside and the tables are placed nicely apart. Apart from the afternoon offerings they have the usual sandwich and baguettes for lunch but the choice of fillings is quite inventive and wide. Additionally a range of filled jackets and daily specials are offered. The Coffee was good and there is a strong variety of teas. Service was excellent and it made for a good experience in a very pleasing ambience. Will definitely be back

Beautiful light snacks (coronation chicken baguette, crok massure) in a lovely relaxed atmosphere, but very pleasant staff. Ideal location to spend a pleasant hour.

“Fabulous tea & cake shop”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Fabulous cakes and other light snacks and friendly service. We travel (generally cycle) out of our way to come here for tea & cake. The shop is a little hidden away in Port Solent, but it's signposted.
