We had lunch and breakfast (different days) here and the breakfast was far better. Lunch was some meat stew. My breakfast was standard eggs, potatoes, meat, and mushroom.The place has a few outdoor tables and a nice view of the beach area across the street. Service staff were great and the coffee was good and strong. The café was crowded on both visits so getting outdoor seating is hit or miss.

Busy cafe with tables available outside overlooking the beach. Service can be a little slow but food is very good and reasonably priced. Friendly atmosphere. Must be good because frequented by locals as well as tourists.

Fantastic, friendly service, even when incredibly busy. The home made baked beans are incredible. Have had many breakfasts here, always wonderful.

We have been to this cafe heaps of times and it's always good. It's the place to go when in Cowes. Good food and service and great water views. Dogs are welcome too. It's a busy place.

We ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning. It was very crowded, but we did find seating for two at the counter. Excellent breakfast menu. Right on the Esplanade.
