“A cliff-top treasure”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

Fresh crab sandwich was excellent - and the view on a sunny day in October was spectacular.

“Always lovely...”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

I love visiting this cafe - for breakfast, lunch or just coffee. Aside from the views, the staff are friendly, helpful and fun. The food is always good and reasonably priced. A great cup of coffee.
