Small cafe with indoor and outdoor picturesque seating. Friendly staff, and good choice of simple cakes which were tastier than they looked. Average coffee and prices.

This place is advertised online AND down at Boscombe sea front as being open every weekend of the year. Well it’s either gone out of business or very unreliable as it was closed today. Save yourself the walk and don’t bother.

10 til 6 April to November, until 4 the rest of the year. But if they're not busy they might close early. Call them to check first 01202 395094. The club's etc are in the cafe upstairs.
