Brilliant for a quick panini and drink stop but not much in the way of food other than that. Nice view of the harbour and beach though and can see right out to see from their balcony. Great lunch time stop :D

Great position if you sit outside but the way the place is laid out inside means customers have no sea view. Coffee only available in large mugs and cappuccino was very weak. My baguette seemed like cheap bread with plasticky cheese. Also smelled of fried chips and staff seemed very busy gossiping and giggling amongst themselves.

We just had coffee here but next time we go we shall make sure we haven't just eaten breakfast as the food looked very appetizing and professed to be home made. We sat outside on the veranda in the sun and with a nice view over the harbour watching the comings and goings there.

We visited this cafe after being told they did breakfasts. On arrival I noticed on the board breakfast rolls 2.95 for 1 item 50p for extra. So I asked for 2 bacon and mushroom. Told don't do mushrooms. My daughter wanted bacon and egg and was told don't do egg. So we ended up with 4 bacon rolls. The bacon was hard on parts as it had possibly been kept warm. My advice choose a cafe on the seafront. Only good thing here was the sea view

We popped in for lunch with a sea view!
Sandwiches were filled to the brim and tasty.
Nice latte coffee.
Views are amazing and it was a lovely sunny day. Lots of dog owners sat outside.
The menu isn't huge but a great place for a quick lunch.
