This is a lovely Cafe, serving everything from Bacon Rolls to Homemade Cakes, with a stunning inside and outside view of Margate Harbour though the large windows , but it is pretty expensive, so bear this in mind when visiting. Staff are attentive but they...More

The coffee and scones and excellent in this cafe, and the views are nice over the harbour. It is also open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.

Yes, they were still offering the cooked breakfast for lunch - it was delicious. Also, pleasant canteen type atmosphere and food brought to your table by friendly and efficient staff.

I had a really lovely mixed salad here this morning for £4.95, which seemed really reasonable. The cafe had a nice atmosphere with a nice choice of tables in the sun or shade and a great view across the harbour.

Very expensive cafe, too much competition in Margate now, go somewhere as good but for half the cost. Good lunches. Restricted opening times. Beautiful view over Margate harbour. To hot in summer months.
