This little cafe is a gem! Very clean bright and airy with a pretty view over the lake where you can watch the swans. Staff are friendly and efficient Prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth the little walk away from the high street!

“Great Cafe bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This was our 4th + visit to this Cafe
We own a holiday home in the area & now consider this Cafe to be our 'local'
It is spotlessly clean, great decor & pleasant views all around as it is a circular building.
The proprietors are very customer focused The customer is their priority & needs we're anticipated so no need to ask 'can we have this or that etc'
The food most of which is genuinely home made is very tasty & we'll presented.
There are the usual traditional cafe dishes ( Ham egg & chip) lush & some imaginative dishes (curries, casseroles & other specials, none of which should disappoint .
The loos are spotless.
I consider this cafe is the role model for how a cafe should be.

“Perfect Place For A Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

We recently had our baby daughters Post-Christening Party here. We had around 50 people attend and the size of the room was perfect. Our party started at 5pm after the cafe closed to the public and they even closed an hour early for us to enable us to set everything up. Nothing was too much trouble with the organising and requests for certain food and drink. The buffet was really lovely with lots of choice and was regularly topped up and was very reasonably priced. Overall, I would reccomend lakeside to anyone for a lunch or for a private function. It really made the day with loads of compliments from everyone.

“Bright and Cheerful In A Great Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

This cafe is a little away from the main Gosport retail area, but benefits from very friendly and efficient staff and is well worth the short walk. The setting is excellent with extensive views both from within and also from the open terrace. Very bright and light, and therefore ideal on a sunny day. The menu covers all the usual cafe requirements and there is an impressive specials board. The prices are fair and a visit is recommended.
