Visited today for cooked breakfast… it was barely warm when it arrived to the table so by the time we’d finished we were eating cold food. One of the sausages in the all day breakfast stack tasted off! Nobody came to ask, is everything ok...for you… lots of young people putting food in front of people and not much else. Seems to have lost the care and attention that existed in previous visits.More

5 of us came here for lunch before the Isle of Wight Festival- a great way to start a few days away with some lovely food. 11 of us came for breakfast on the way home from the festival. The food is lovely, the staff...friendly and helpful, and the service was quick and efficient yet we weren't rushed. If we loved locally we'd be there more, but for now it will have to wait for next festival.More

Have been coming for many years. Always a nice welcome by the staff. The cakes are a delight and have a lot of choice. Would highly recommend to others.

All of the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The tearoom was very clean and there was a great menu. We had a full English and the American pancakes with bacon & maple syrup-everything was really tasty! And for a Monday morning it was very...busy which tells me it’s good. Amazing selection of cakes, never seen so many in one cafe! Would definitely recommend and will definitely returnMore

We enjoyed it so much we went back at 3 for coffee and cake. If you can...choose between the delicious choice of cakes on offer !!!!!!! They are all amazing. The staff are all lovely too , will definitely recommend to anyone visiting the quaysMore

It would have been 5 stars. Service was brilliant. Food and coffee amazing. Only thing missing was number of calories against each option so I could have made an informed choice on which was the healthier option

Today’s Special was delicious. Huge Wrap full of Lamb & Feta Cheese, lovely Side Salad & Dip. 😋 Lamb cooked to perfection, wasn’t greasy. Hope the Wrap becomes a regular item. Lovely Staff & Servers, faultless. Will definitely visit again. Thank you 😊

Enormous portions, extremely tasty and filling. Very nice staff-from the lady who seated us, to the young lady on the till and the very helpful waitress (with glasses). It was very busy when we went, yet the food and drinks came out promptly. The slowest...bit was queuing up to order and pay, but that gave you time to ogle the delicious-looking cakes!More

I had two poor interactions with the till operator. She was a middle aged lady with brown hair and a large build. She was extremely blunt and rude. I even spotted her roll her eyes at me and my friend after we'd paid. Our coffees...were very weak which came as a surprise as my friend said they were usually strong. We had the breakfast stack which was pretty mediocre given the price. I left feeling very disappointed as I'd always heard pleasant things about the place. I'd essentially paid £20 for a full English, weak coffee and rude customer service. On a positive note, the front of house staff man and one of the waitresses were friendly and helpful.More

Ordered the breakfast stack and cappuccino. Cappuccino was weak, and food was cold apart from the sausages. Black pudding were cold hockey pucks. The lady that served us was blunt and rude, and eyerolled when asked a polite question. However the other staff were kind,...such as the host and a couple of the servers. Food and drink was £17, and for the high price point I have left disappointed.More

We both had the Chicken Caesar Salad and it was very filling. The biggest salad you ever did see, and it tasted amazing. We’re sad we had no room for cake, because they looked stunning too. We will be back!

My partner and I eat here regularly, often with our 1 year old boy. The staff are always very accommodating and friendly and we always feel welcome. The food here is incredible, we often attend in the morning like today’s visit and have the full...English breakfast, and of course take cake home for afterwards. The cake selection is fab, so much to choose from. Good views of Southsea here too. It really is a great place and a definite must if you’re in the area!More

Sorry have only received notification for this question. I’m not sure whether you turned up to try and get a table or not. Being mother’s day it was very busy but everyone willing to wait for table did get in.
