On a busy, sunny Sunday morning in Torquay, we snagged a table in the shade of this popular cafe! Service, after ordering inside, was quick and efficient.

Luke warm latte, luke warm iced coffee, cold fatty lamb on souvlaki, disinterested, apathetic, argumentative staff, especially blonde girl at register. Filthy premises.

Sitting outside under the umbrellas you can relax, looking across the road to the beach, while sipping your coffee & munching on whatever treat you fancy today.

Stopped for coffee and a delicious berry and ricotta cake ( shared between the two of us and with real cream! ) the coffee was hot and creamy and the cake was Devine, not too sweet and lovely and moist. The staff were happy and friendly and actually appeared to be enjoying themselves , lovely.
