Fabulous position right on the beach with heating and wind protection so you can eat/drink outside all year round. Coffee was awful. They don’t know what a Flat White is!More

Staff were attentive, polite and knowledgeable. Menu was great, especially the specials. The pigs cheek starter is to die for. Good wine. The only fly in the ointment was my husbands lemon posset. It was barely set and more like lemon soup, but it did...More

On a cold bright day the cafe was a perfect place to appreciate the view along this part of the coast. Brave the cold and sit on the balcony (blankets provided) and warm up with a quickly delivered coffee and cake.
