We visited the wetlands and then walk across to Big Verns Diner which faces the sea. As it was out of season it was very quiet so I expected as other places it would have limited menu but surprising everything was available! I opted for a crab sandwich and my sister had a pancake with banana and blueberries with the... More

We went there for lunch last week on Saturday and ordered a steak sandwich and crab sandwich. Both came with a side salad garnish... a very wilted salad that didn't go near our mouths as we did not get any cutlery or napkins... every time we tried to get a waitress' attention, they were very good at ignoring us.... on...

Great location, plenty parking. Stunning view of St Ouens bay, after a walk on the beach this is a good place to stop. Good food, fresh juice and good coffee. Sitting outside is the best when it's sunny, but inside is clean seaside look. No take away ice creams though.

Brilliant location, great coffee and very warming after being blasted with wintry cold air. It's very popular with locals and visitors alike. Great coffee!

Heard so much about this place and it was such a massive disappointment. Asked for ice water and never received it. The breakfast arrived cold, with burnt bacon, burnt tomatoes and under done egg that looked as though it had been cooked in dirty fat. Very different from the picture above. When we told the waitress she just shrugged her... More

I went for breakfast. The food was great though they couldn't quite grasp that I wanted white toast! I requested the wifi password. They told me it was the free wifi router. I told them that wasn't there, lady just shrugged her shoulders and walked off.

Having been refused breakfast at two other cafes in the west of the island we ventured down to Big Vern's for what we knew would be a reliable, guaranteed breakfast experience. As usual, the staff were friendly the service was quick and good and the breakfast is amazing whether you want just a breakfast roll or a full English with... More
