This cafe could not be located any better. Great views across Plymouth Sound. Varied menu to suit snacks, drinks or something a bit more filling. Very popular when the sun is shining, easy to spend an afternoon relaxing and soaking up the rays.

Just had a yummy lunch at The Terrace on a lovely Sunday sunny afternoon. Views are incredible, lunch was very lovely and service pretty quick despite it being very busy. We had a Greek salad and a toasted panini ... yummy!
