“Cafe with a view”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

It's just a small café on the sea wall, so seating is limited unless the sun is shining and it's warm, as then you can sit outside. They try to make an interesting menu, but, if you lunch late, then they've often sold out of some of the selections. On the whole the food is good.

“Lovely location, but poor service -twice!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

Gorgeous day, lots of visitors about, a couple of tables at the front (the rest stacked up around the side unused!). Checked with the board outside and chose tea with lemon drizzle cake - they had none (it was just before 12) - in fact, apart from a few slices of walnut and coffee cake, that was it for the home made cakes! Service was begrudging - it was as if it was all too much trouble. We took our tea to the roof terrace, past the very fruity waste bins and stacks of unused tables and chairs, lovely views from up there. Sadly this is the second time we've visited, in the last few months and experienced the same poor service. This place could be an absolute delight, with the right staff and a bit more food to offer.

“Great position”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Bit small but on a good day tables/chairs outside. Fantastic position. Have turned up twice half hour before closing time and not been able to get anything as they decided to close early! very frustrating when made the effort to travel there from Weymouth!

“Great Service”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We came across this place by accident, and glad we did, very good tea and ice creams, at reasonable prices, friendly and helpful lady serving us, with great views out across the bay.
