I popped in here to buy ice creams for the kids. The scoops of ice cream barely filled the hole in the cone it was served in. A complete rip off!

My advice it to walk to the co-op next to the railway station and buy your ice cream there as you will get 4 times as much for half the price!

We come here all the time when in Swanage. The service is great, nice chilled out atmosphere and a good place to meet up with family and friends when in town. It can get a bit expensive if you're indulging in cakes and pastries, but no more than your average soul less coffee chain. We pop in most days when down here. The coffee is always good, a nice range of drinks to choose from and free wifi make it a lovely place to spend an hour pouring over the papers.

We came to Swanage and found this on the seafront. Ordered 2 large cups of Mocha coffee and sat watching the sea and the comings and goings for a good hour. Its in a great location and does a variety of mouth watering Ice Creams too. Good service with a smile.
