We visited for an ice cream. We waited at the ice cream window for a good while before making our way inside. We then waited by the inside ice cream counter, catching eyes with staff only for them to dash off before I could ask for service. Eventually joined the long queue for food to get to the front..only to... More

It is a normal seaside cafe, nothing special, fried food, not the cheapest, the cost of the drinks was the expensive part. I would not return for food

Popped in for a coffee and cake, couldn't have done better. Mug of coffee, pot of tea, apple pie and custard, huge slice of Victoria sponge - £8:65. All tasted good, very quick service, friendly and helpful staff. No frills cafe, good value, and with a view over the sea just a few yards away.

Nice, reasonably priced food on the promenade. Eat inside or out so on a nice day you can sit and look over the sea.

Been here many times this summer. With the dog of course, weather permitting. Lovely meeting point. Lots of old faces from yesteryears and good grub to match.

Beans dehydrated from being kept warm. Price was £6.75 but next door in toby does all you can eat for cheaper with unlimited tea and coffee. The let down for me here was the... More

Clean, friendly, prompt, vibrant. Reasonably priced and food cooked properly and served hot. Only obvious drawbacks were a small-medium threshold step after an accessible ramp and fixed Mildred seating on the interior tables.
