Had lunch here a couple of times over the last few weeks. Found the food to be excellent. Lovely tasty salads and equally tasty generous sandwiches. Staff very helpful and polite. Service excellent also. Tables by the window offer a fantastic view of the harbour....More

The Bay Cafe has some nice outdoor tables to sit on when the sun is out. Cafe was busy with regulars as well as visitors which bus always a good sign. Watch out for the eager gulls

Absolutely amazing seafood baguette take away. Would highly recommend to others. Have also purchased toasted panini and sausage rolls for children - equally good.
