We ate at this cafe a few days ago for the first time and we was amazed at the overall review. Great customer service they the chat that runs it is very friendly and great with children. The food was Fantastic and well worth the money. Very cheap prices!!! The cafe was very clean and push chair friendly and cosy as my misses says :) Overall 11 out of 10. Well be going again :)

“Why pay more??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We use this café each time we go to Blackpool (probably four times a year) Called again on 28/06/2014 and was given the usual friendly greeting by Nigel the owner. Ordered two large breakfasts which were cooked while we waited. All food was well cooked and the portions were good. Great value at £9-50 for the two (including tea and toast) You can pay a lot more at any seaside resort and the food will not be anywhere near as good and the owner will not be as helpful and friendly. I would recommend the Harlequin if you are looking for no nonsense good food at great prices.

“Fantastic Sunday Dinner, brilliant value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

One of the best Sunday dinners we've had for a long time and plenty of it, excellent value for money, very tasty, hot and freshly made. We also had a starter but didn't really need one as Sunday dinner was quite large. I would highly recommend the Harlequin Café to everyone.
