I’m gluten intolerant and it is still hard to find a place that does gluten free breakfasts. The Compass Cafe could not do enough to accommodate me and my normal eating friends. The customer service was excellent, the staff friendly and professional, the prices very reasonable, we went every morning. The cafe was very clean. Needless to say we will definitely be back.

Sometimes, and especially when on holiday in Blackpool, it's nice to have a lovely breakfast (full English of course) in the afternoon. This is the perfect place for that - a lovely, hearty meal with a very friendly vibe. The food is top-notch and incredibly reasonably priced for what you get. I've had both the vegan breakfast and the regular full English - both are exceptional. I love how the vegan option isn't just thrown together random rubbish just for the sake of being vegan, but really nicely balanced flavours and textures that don't leave one wishing they'd gone the other side of their flexitarian ways that day. :) My husband had the large version of the full English at our last visit - HUGE, and served in a skillet. So cool! Also they provide ice with cold beverages which for me is a huge plus. Anyway, it's amazing! :)

Best breakfast in town. Great choice/options. Outstanding service and gluten free available with no trouble. So good we've gone every morning and plan to go again tomorrow. Coffee and tea are so good.
Can't book, first come first served so get there early. Opens at 9am and by 10 its busy for the day. If I could make it 6 stars on the review I would

Welcoming and friendly staff, great breakfast (very filling), very reasonably priced, can't fault it. Kids breakfast was perfect! Shame we're only here for a few days

Been wanting to try here for a long time....arrived and was not overly busy.....waited 35 mins for our food....husbands came out first and ours 5 mins later.....food was OK however bacon was very hard and well done and my poached egg was slimy. We had ran out of drinks because of the long wait and never was asked if we would like more....no one asked if food was OK.....3 waitress stood round near counter.....little bit disappointing
