“Fantastic, surprising little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

We happened to stop by on a break from watching the racing during TT week. We were looking for cakes and tea in a lovely place and, to our pleasant surprise we found a very clean, cozy, classy, full-menu restaurant - in addition to lovely cakes and teas.

Run by the very sweet and talented Eva from Bulfgaria the menu feature delicious, healthy daily specials and a variety of traditional Manx/British fare ranging from fish & chips to meat pies, salads and sandwiches. We enjoyed the food, location, atmosphere, as well as Eva's and her mate's hospitality so much we returned five times that week! It is reasonably priced and good for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, or a snack (and open fairly late).

Specifically, we had excellent coffee and tea, lemon cake which was a delicious generous portion, fluffy and not oversweet; Cross buns which were moist and delicious, Fish & Chips which were simply the best in town - with a flavorful batter, high quality fish, with great chips - properly sized and not greasy at all....Ace!!! We also stopped for takeaway sandwiches twice during the racing and they were, although simply English cheese sandwiches, superb!

Eva does cakes and other pastries for special oocassions and, from waht we could see from her photos (and not only photos of her cakes grace the walls. Eva is a talented photographer and many beautiful Manx and other landscapes from interesting and creative prespectives adorn the walls), they were creative, often funny, and beautiful! Although we didn't order any, I am sure they are as delicious as everything else.

So, do yourself and your loved ones a favor and please go see Eva at The Mad Hatter and go early in your trip and often. Both your palate and pocketbook with be very happy!

“Really tasty homemade fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

My big gripe about IOM is the lack of good food at sensible prices..... at last a restaurant with both of these. Would be nice if they moved down south so I could go more often! Agree with OneK60 that the one revelations is that the food is really home made and really tasty.

“Great Little Caf'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is a great little caf', I shouldn't really be telling you about it, as right now it's one of those places for those 'in the know'.

The Mad Hatter is bright, clean and cheery, it's staff are friendly without it feeling forced. But the revelation.......is that the food really is home made, and it's good. The fishcakes with chilli jam (that I had) were made in the kitchen, not in some industrial unit in Grimsby, and the same rings true of their whole menu.

This is not a deep fried sausages and chips with everything kind of place - and it's all the better for it, having said that, if you do want chips, then their chips are great............

Go try it, but don't tell too many people......

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Stumbled across this little eatery last week and have to say it is one of the nicest places going to get some good quality home made food.

A surprisingly varied menu which left us in some difficulty in deciding what to have. We settled on sandwiches which were freshly cut and came with some crisps and a fantastic home made potato salad plus a dressed fresh side salad. It was absolutely delicious and presented really well. The chips were good too and, the pancakes that we ordered to try, were about the best I have eaten anywhere. Really generous portions and amazing value for money.

Ran by a lovely couple and nothing is too much trouble.

Highly recommend and we will definitely be returning - if only to sample some of the home made cakes that looked fantastic!
