Funnily somebody below says there are less customers now! when we visited mid April it was heaving with people, mainly kids!! and we couldn't even get a table, hence the heading.
We've eaten here before and agree that its over priced for what you get, but there isn't much alternative if you're here anyway....
Agree it's a nice place to sit and watch from, (if you can get a table!) ;-)

Drove to Sandbanks and the cafe looked inviting, fresh lovely location. That's the only good thing I can say. The food was overpriced not family friendly lots of people sheltering from the rain could be heard opting for the cake as main meals overpriced if buying for a family. We opted for the fish as photo very appealing, not what received both my husband and I had battered Haddock skin with very little white fish on it so disappointing!

We visited this place three times during our short stay in the area. If there is a more beautiful place to spend a relaxing hour or so chilling with some pleasant food in the sunshine overlooking an unblemished beach and a clear blue sea with killer views then I'd like to see it.

I have visited here numerous times and return because it had been fantastic, however something has changed. Poor value, poor service, cake quality reduced, soggy ice cream cones and the cafe was quiet (it used to be always busy)
