We went on Easter Sunday as three generations and had a mixture of brunch and quiche/salad. The portions were generous and the food fresh. Coffee and hot chocolate were both bang on. The place has a really good vibe and the service is first rate. Parking is straightforward and at £1 per hour not the hideous price you can pay... More

Someone opened the door as we walked past mid morning and such a lovely smell emerged we decided we had to come back at lunchtime. Great decision, as our scrambled eggs on toast were really good. My husband was slightly unhappy about the strength of the tea but when he brought it up with one of the staff they immediately... More

I stumbled across this place on a weekend away with some girl friends and fell in love as soon as I stepped inside. I work in the catering business and just had to take photos of the amazing food and shabby feel of the place. I had a very yummy coffee and the fresh salad box that I got to... More

Great little cafe, busy but efficient and very helpful, friendly staff. Delicious food, all freshly prepared and great coffee. You order at the counter and staff bring your food/drinks. They also offer take out. Shabby chic decor. Cosy tables.

Popped in here for lunch after a long walk along the cliff top. It was busy, full of families, friends and couples spread around the three rooms, with the one facing the main street still with the original tiles from the dairy. You order and pay at the counter. Then your food is brought to you. The staff were really... More
