I had a coffee here whilst admiring the beautiful views. Plenty of outside seating for when the sun is shining - friendly staff although seemed rather hectic as it was busy! They also serve in take away cups, perfect when walking along the beach.

You have to visit Mollys! Fantastic coffee, excellent food and most importantly all the staff are top notch - friendly, welcoming and always willing to help! Plus it is always open even in the most horrible weather and is a welcome site when cycling on the under cliff in torrential rain! Location is also wonderful where you can sit in... More

Great place for morning or afternoon tea and coffee with delicious cake or for a relaxing lunch. Staff are friendly and very responsive to their customers.

Been in several times and always had a smiley welcome either from different ladies or young lads behind the counter. Your custom feels appreciated. I haven't got past the lemon drizzle cake yet as its lovely. But all the other produce looks great. Coffee is very good . A nice experience.

We visit Molly's almost weekly as part of our cycling trip. We are always made welcome and when the sun isn't shining, we sit inside and what a relief to find that we are not endlessly bothered by dogs slobbering over us. They are, of course, welcome at the outside tables where they belong. We are usually there for breakfast.... More

We have visited this cafe often as it is in a lovely position overlooking the sea. The staff are lovely and all the food and drink we have had has been great. The soup yesterday was very tasty and served hot. The prices are very reasonable.
