We fount the place by accident, walking near fair with kids. We stayed for lunch. This is the cuties place ever. There is a wide choice of sandwiches and kids menu to choose from. Food is prepared in to order and delivered to table. Staff...very nice and friendly with kids. They got a lot of locally produced cakes. We are not vegetarian or vegan, but they seem to offer variety of cakes for them.More

A wonderful cafe for lunch. We all enjoyed our generous meals with relaxing uplifting classical music. The toilet facilities were kindly stocked with anything you could need.

An excellent vegan menu and really helpful and friendly staff. We enjoyed the falafel salad bowl, falafel and red pepper sandwich and a portion of chips (prepared in a separate vegan-only fryer). Generous servings and it was all delicious. Will definitely visit again to try...some cake!More

We ordered a pot of tea for two and got...over 8 cups out of it, you get alot for your money. They offer something for eveyone with vegan options and different milk options if needed. 10/10 will visit againMore

This lovely tearoom had a whole menu for vegans, with GF options clearly marked too. Very tasty food with generous portions. Amazing cakes, eg vegan crème egg cookie and vegan crème egg brownie. Great service too.

A gem of a find less than one minute walk from the deep fried fare of the beachfront. We had very tasty sandwiches with a lovely fresh side salad and shared a portion of chunky chips. Delicious. Coffee was very tasty too. Cakes looked amazing...but we didn’t have room for that!More

Before arriving in Hayling island we did a little research on gluten free places to eat, madhatters came up on the searches. We are a family of 6, 2 of which need GF. Breakfast was amazing, GF had pancakes and full English, both loved every...bite, the rest of us also enjoyed the amazing breakfast that was served. We would definitely return for more 😋More

Lovely and friendly place for a quick lunch. Food was excellent, with plenty of choice. Very near the beach without all the beach noise. Would highly recommend it.
