This was our second time here. It's a good old cafe which does a tasty breakfast where you can sit inside or enjoy the views outside over looking the sea. Good price to.

Been here before and it was nothing special, still the same. Average food for slightly high prices. Service was ok but they did struggle a bit with our large group. Sausages were deep fried/reheated Bread was dry. Friendly enough but there's better cafes nearby.

Stopped off unplanned for a bite to eat. Sat outside as had our dog. Water provided for dogs. Decent choice on menu. Food came out pretty quick considering how busy it was. Piping hot, tasty, and good value. Will use again.

Located next to the tennis courts in Palm Bay Avenue, overlooking the sea. It's a beautiful location, but more importantly the food is wonderful and the prices affordable. The staff are friendly. I've been going there quite some time and would have put it on here a long time ago if I had realised about your site. I cannot recommend them enough, my husband and I love it there and its not only a great place to eat but a nice afternoon out as well.
