Had an excellent coffee here and could take my dog into the cafe. Brilliant way to start the day after a walk on the beach. They have made a real effort with the decoration which makes it stand out in E Wittering.

Greatest freshly made pancakes with so many fillings to choose from. Can't resist going in for a coffee and pancake whenever in village.

My first time to visit yesterday, and the food and drink was amazing. I had a smoothie and the bacon and maple syrup pancakes (gluten free). A very welcoming cafe and highly recommended.
