We paid a visit following a walk to Old Harry. The staff appeared uninterested in taking our order and water for tea wasn't warm enough to brew, had to ask for milk and sugar as non offered. Seemed untidy and disorganised and could be so much better.

I always enjoy going to this cafe. It is unpretentious and welcoming. The coffee and chocolate brownies are great. We went to the Paella night last summer and it was an excellent night. The food was cooked by a young chap who did a wonderful job of making a delicious Paella for about 20 people. It contained a mixture of locally gathered produce such as razor clams, cockles etc, as well as local venison sausage - delicious. You can take your own wine and we met some interesting locals. Will always pop in if I am in the area! Well done.

If you are a stressy sort of person go elsewhere. This place is well meaning and does not exploit its position with silly prices. Nice selection and charming family inside.

Half hour wait for an overpriced ham salad baguette £3 the young staff didnt have a clue and were obviously struggling with so many people in the queue mostly moaning about the slow service. Why they hadn't prepared food in advance knowing it would be busy ?? Walk up the beach to the next cafe.

Regardless of it being very hot and busy the lady that was working there was lovely and happy. Customers were happy with their orders (including me) and they have beach equipment you can borrow such as deck chairs, wind breakers and toys for the kids. Brilliant will be stopping off there the next time we are in Studland
