While hardly in the most picturesque location (I like Fratton, but it's not the prettiest area of Portsmouth!), I can see why this cafe is so highly rated on here: the coffee is excellent, there's a wide range of delicious cakes, including some good 'free...from' options (the sandwiches also looked delicious, and generously sized for the price - next time!), and the staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. It's also dog-friendly, which was great for me as I got doggy cuddles from the cutie at the next table.More

Baffled On The Beach serves excellent espresso. In a perfect location right on Southsea Beach. They also have loads of other snacks and drinks on the menu.

Excellent service and food. Collected a Reuben sandwich and açai and berry smoothie. Smoothie was so good I’d finished it before the sandwich was ready and had another. The Reuben was the best sandwich I’ve had in a very long time. Staff were very friendly...and their conduct faultless. I will be returning.More

We had breakfast here this morning. The coffee was lovely and the food was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. Easy parking in the surrounding streets. We would definitely go back there again.

I visited Baffled Coffee on Fawcett road in Jul-22 taking advantage of their lunch-time meal deal. I ordered the chicken Milanese baguette, a pastel de nata, and a soya milk cappuccino. I would thoroughly recommend this café and will be visiting again soon!

Friendly cafe with indoor and small outdoor seating areas. Lots of home made cakes, excellent coffee and an interesting selection of deli sandwiches and light meals. Dog friendly and service with a smile.

The Reuben sandwich is unbelievable! I’ve stopped here for lunch a number of times over the years and always opt for the Rueben and it never disappoints 🤤

Watery cappuccino as it was made with more milk than a latte. Not the right ratio for a decent cup of cappuccino, unfortunately. The flat white was ok.

Visited this wonderful cafe / coffee shop on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Honestly the best bacon roll ever and it and the atmosphere brought me back the next day. Take a trip off Hayling to enjoy it- it’s well worth it ❤️

The hot chocolate was great. The food was not. The bacon was bland and half a tomato and one small flat mushroom was a disappointment. Everything on the plate was heavily covered in salt and pepper so the seasoning was not to my liking -...I'd suggest they do what others do and leave the seasoning to the customer to suit their personal taste. I won't be going back because of the food and as an aside, the tables are very cramped so avoid if you are disabled or less mobile, as not at all comfortable. Shame as only tried the place due to the good reviews so very disappointed.More

Quirky place - their full English is ok but no way is it amazing (obviously in our opinion) - new potato wedges were reheated and greasy, I was gutted after reading reviews - if they'd come and asked once they'd served it we would have...asked for them to be re re-heated maybe 🙈 - hubby got VERY crispy streaky bacon with it and he was surprised because you normally ask if you want it that crispy, sausages are wierd herby things too - I had the blt and I hoped the bacon would be warm and freshly cooked but that might be my fault - coffee wasn't hot either but again left out the back we couldn't really say as no-one came once they'd served us - its like a hippie vibe type place and maybe all their 5 star reviews have made them a bit complacent as they didn't seem that friendly and we weren't really made to feel welcome - bit awkward really as its such a small place (we always like to support independents) however I politely told them about greasy cold potatoes when I was leaving and paying but just got an "ok ill keep an eye on that in future"More
