We attended this lovely little cafe yesterday Saturday. The selection available was very nice, I had the crab and my husband the cheese and pickle sandwich, both were served with salad and coleslaw. Well worth a visit especially if you have a dog.

We had toasted paninis, and cream tea on a sunny afternoon, overlooking beautiful Weymouth Bay, what more could you want. The staff were efficient and friendly, the food delicious and within pretty traditional surroundings.

Such a lovely, friendly place with fantastic food. Sandwiches are very fresh and tasty with side salad and homemade coleslaw. The scones are so light and the tea is good and strong! Family run and extremely helpful. Being a wheelchair user they couldn't do enough to assist us. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. We are in Weymouth for a week and have been going every day since we found it as we can't find better elsewhere!

Why haven't I been here before?! Absolutely lovely place the decor is amazing. Proper cream tea in a very vintage style. Freshly homemade scones best I've tasted in Weymouth so far. Super friendly and welcoming staff. My dogs especially welcomed. Great value for money too.

IF you are looking for somewhere to relax with views of the beach and seafront then look no further than the Good Life cafe.
Its elevated customer area with a circular frontage means that when you sit down at a table it is possible to see the waves and sands, all the little Esplanade shelters and the sweep of the seafront all in one view.
You even rub shoulders with history since the premises are opposite the famous Kings Statue which is also an easy way to find the cafe.
The Good Life doesn't over-reach itself. All its cakes are home-made, there are coffees, teas and cream teas and for slightly more nourishment the visitor can pick from sandwiches and jacket potatoes to panini and salads. It is all light stuff but tempting.
There are two rooms for customers set five feet above street level with large expanses of window which make everything light and bright. The floor is simple wood, the staff are well informed and friendly and the whole atmosphere is very relaxed.
I ordered a coffee which was quickly brought to my table and when I used the toilets I found they were up two flights of stairs. Inside they were clean and quite spacious.
The position of the Good Life is second to none and well worth a visit particularly if you are on the beach and are looking for a quick snack and drink break. Lovely little place.
