Review of Spill the Beans

Spill the Beans
Ranked #4 of 8 Coffee & Tea in Douglas
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

I dicovered this gem of a cafe on the last day of my previous visit so it was the first point of call this time. It serves an excellent coffee which is in short supply in the Isle of Man, but this is the place to come for beautiful home made cake. No stale plastic fare here. Enjoy a coffee and cake then walk along the harbour to get the holiday vibe.

Despite the recent explosion of coffee shops in Douglas this is still the best in town. The home made cakes simply cannot be beaten by mass produced over priced guff supplied elsewhere. Make an effort to visit on a Saturday when they do the best cheesecake in the Isle of Man.

Can't wait to go back! Visited 3 times in 1 week sampling the yummy cakes including spicy ginger and rich tart lemon. Best scone I've ever had! Great lattes. Friendly service. Some patio seats. Comfy couches. Free WiFi. Clean bathroom. A great place to grab something to go or to hang out.

I have been coming to this cafe for over 10 years; have tried others and always come back to this one. The coffee and cakes are wonderful; the lunch menu is limited but very well done, usually vegetarian. They do have meat filled sandwiches in tasty bread at very reasonable prices if you are a meat eater. I usually go alone and enjoy the me time but when I take the family the children are very well received. But what makes this place is Sarah and her staff. Its home from home in its atmosphere and thats what keeps you coming back. If you are a visitor to the Island then try this place. Afterwards take a nice walk along the harbour or up Douglas Head to work off the cake and get great views of Douglas and the Manx Hills beyond.

I am a regular visitor to 'Spill the Beans' and they offer the best latte in town. The range and quality of cakes are excellent - particularly the ginger cake and the Saturday specials. The soup of the day is always tasty and you are given a generous portion. All staff are always friendly and welcoming.
