Very enjoyable and able to find a table for 6 six just for a tea/coffee and cake. Not near the window but in the middle of the room and still with a view. Near to lunchtime but not rushed out in order that they could replace the menus.

Visited this beachside cafe twice during our week's holiday in Jersey. Lots of outdoor seating with great views over the beach at St Brelade's Bay. Smaller but cosy dining area inside also with great views of the beach. Family friendly and dogs welcome outdoors too. Food was lovely - freshly cooked mostly local produce including great seafood. Cakes also to... More

Great place to eat, either inside or outside. Great menu and prices are good. Good system, get your own tray and drinks, remember your table number and place your food order. Lots of choice of lovely food, staff are helpful and efficient. Must go back. Plenty of parking which helps.

Dropped by - on a recommendation from TA, and was not disappointed. Good indoor and better outdoor space ( given the weather) as this provides great views over the bay and time to relax and enjoy your food and drink. Service efficient and friendly. We only had coffee and cake but it was good and proper portions too. Locals frequent... More

Wonderful food in an idyllic location. Margaret and her team give a wonderful welcome and the food is wonderful and very reasonable. I have been here many times - just for a table of 2 and also with my 3 children. There is something for everyone.

Excellent beachfront cafe serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Grab a tray and order and pre-pay at the counter and grab your beverages/ wines to take to you pre-selected numbered table. Lovely seafood, salads and pasta. Wines OK, but elevated prices reflect the high class location, rather than the quality of the F&B and the semi self-service model.

Great location on the waterfront, with a varied menu and a relaxed atmosphere. Lots of seating outdoors for warm weather, but indoors was better for February.

This was a "stop off" on our way back to our hotel. Very nice food, and a good coffee in a lovely beach side cafe, with a lovely casual atmosphere

Went here for breakfast & to admire the view, the view certainly didn't disappoint but that's as far as it goes. Service was incredibly slow, the bacon dry and the the toast soggy, highlight were the poached eggs which were very good. Filter coffee was ok, however the cappuccino was overpriced & unpleasant. I ordered a flat black coffee and... More

This is one of our favourite breakfast haunts. Comfortable enough to share with friends and family, or just to read the papers on your own. Can be very crowded due to being excellent. Staff are not afraid to be quite direct at times. Great food, usually quick, and a view to die for.

Thank Heidi G
