Lovely cafe, and with the most fantastic views imaginable . Not a bad menu and very fairly priced . Excellent service from the very polite and helpful team, but, above all , what makes this place such a pleasure to visit, is the superb proprietor, who is the most pleasant and attentive manager one could possibly wish for.

The large breakfast is excellent. Good sized portions, freshly cooked,piping hot and appetisingly served. The young staff are really friendly and helpful and we will certainly go again. ( The cakes looked good too) Our only minor criticism is that the coffee is on the weak side and could be hotter.

After walking along a stretch of the South West Coastal Path seen this little cafe. Service was very professional, I enjoyed a very nice earl grey pot of tea & a tea cake. It is a cash cafe so make sure you have cash (no debt/credit cards). Also the place is dog friendly so that's good news if your walking... More

We came for a walk along the cliffs and it was a horrid rainy windy day so popped in for lunch. Cheap and cheerful cafe that welcomes dogs (that are well behaved). Food was good. Not great but good. The grilled tomato was pretty firm and could have done with more cooking but everything else was pretty good and the... More

We come here whenever we are in Devon and the weather is good. Staying about 25 miles away, it shows how we appreciate the wonderful view across the Sound. Used to eat here but now restrict ourselves to coffee and cake as the meals are so-so. Prices are reasonable though. The location is wonderful, and well worth the visit if... More

Had ham egg and chips. The eggs were like overdone and plasticky. The ham was plentiful and good. The chips were not very good frozen variety. If the ham hadn't been good this meal would have only got 1 star. Won't be returning soon.

Average at best, perfectly placed with beautiful views. The food didn't live up to expectations. Barely warm pastie & 2 average baguettes but a good cup of tea. Decent prices and good staff. Bowls of water outside for dogs , a nice touch. Will go again, fry up this time.

Visited here with my family today (Bank holiday Monday) they had run out of pasties and sausage rolls, so instead had 2 X sausage baps and chips. Nice sausage bap in a tiger roll bread, chips were good. They also ran out of takeaway boxes so had to have everything in a bag, not ideal but we made good. It... More
