Decided to stop here for breakfast having read good reviews and not wanting to eat at a Beefeater whilst staying at the Premier Inn in Weymouth. It’s got great views which were hampered but misty/rainy weather but would be amazing on a clear day. Inside...More

A great place for breakfast, coffee & cake or lunch, staff are very friendly and the meals are very tasty. No better place on a sunny day for a lovely crab sandwich or a full English on a cold winter morning.

Always busy but a good turnover so seats always available. If the weather is good lots of benches outside to take in the views

Visited one Friday early afternoon, very busy but managed to get a table. The Dorset Apple Cake with ice cream was a delicious according to my husband. The meals that other diners looked huge, especially the crab sandwich. Would return and recommend.

Very friendly staff serving great basic fare. Beautiful views across Weymouth bay to Portland and to the Weymouth sea front and harbour. Fresh soup changed daily. Can get crowded during peak periods all year round. A regular stop over for us.

There was free parking on the road, which is most unusual for Weymouth. We had a lovely cream tea (with very large scones) and enjoyed the fantastic sea views. The service was very friendly.

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
