Not overly attractive from the outside and a scruffy menu but the food was excellent and far more than we expected. Outstanding value too. We'll probably go back next time we are in Weymouth.

Given the good reviews I chose this for morning coffee. The coffee was OK but there was very little choice of cake, so I had to settle for a rather soggy scone. I also visited the toilet, which I was shocked to discover was filthy and I am not that picky! Finally I was surprised to find that it was cash only,which is absurd given the current state of payment technology.

Good afternoon.

I'm afraid we don't have little choice of cake we have NO choice of cake. We dont stock cake. We use to do lots of homemade cakes but we just don't sell enough nowadays to make it worth our while. We are very much a breakfast cafe and not a cake and coffee cafe. We do cream teas and tea cakes. Why your scone would have been soggy I have no idea? We warm the scones gently before we serve them. They are delivered fresh and well wrapped and are stored on the counter under cover. You should have told us. I am at a loss to see how it came to you soggy. Why did yiu not point it out to us at the time? Regarding the toilet, again, why did you not tell us? It is impossible for us to clean the toilet after every customer has visited. Most people are clean and respectful but some people are disgusting. I often wonder if people leave their bathrooms at home in that state. I can only apologise that you had to walk into that. I would have gone straight to the staff to tell them so that they could sort it there and then. Unfortunately people such as yourself go home and hit the keyboard and what can be done then? It is to late to fix things then isnt it. This is not helpful to either party so please feel free to voice your complaints in future. Anywhere would be more than happy to rectify things for their customers. As you can see our reviews are brilliant in the main so on the rare occasion we are lacking we would much rather you voiced them at the time. Thank you.

A useful little cafe: sea view, tables inside and out, and just a few yards from the bus stops for Portland and around. Service is cheerful and flexible: if you want a non-standard coffee or food they'll do their best. We were less impressed by the coffee than some other reviewers, though: it's average or a little better, but can't stand comparison with a serious coffee house such as you can find, for example, in Bath. Unfortunately I don't know of one in Weymouth!

Hmmm. 'Cant stand comparison with a serious coffee house' We are not a 'coffee house' serious or otherwise. We are a seafront Cafe that serves expensive, roast Columbian beans in all our coffees. Given that our coffees are so popular, you saw the other reviews for yourself, with our numerous regular daily coffee drinkers and visitors, perhaps ours is a little to rich and smooth for your taste. There are many coffee houses, not cafes, in Weymouth and many of them serve bitter or wishy washy coffee which may be more to your liking. Do seek one out on your next visit to the seaside and hopefully you will be happier with the taste if more what your use to.

Saw the reviews on here and arrived on a Wednesday morning to find it closed. Undaunted we returned the next day and had an excellent full English Breakfast made to order. This is no greasy spoon, the ingredients are fresh and tasty, prepared by the cheerful welcoming owner unfazed by the constant stream of customers. Right on the front at the harbour end. Very reasonably priced. If you want breakfast in Weymouth look no further the reviews don't lie.
