Had brunch here, food selective was alright. I thought they had more vegetarian option, I struggled to choose non-veg food. I had vegan brekky, their rosemary& sage sausages was delicious! will go back just for these! Service was fine, food came through quickly.

Lovely spot on the waterfront to relax after a beach walk. Friendly staff and relaxing environment. Coffee was really good and the breakfast was very good and tasty. The chocolate cake was Devine.... simply perfect... yum. Abit pricey though for breakfast/ brunch.

The atmosphere was good looking out onto the Sea, but the food did not excite which was disappointing It was a little on the noisey side also.

I have been to this cafe a lot over the years and it's just not as good as it used to be. It's still OK but just not a favourite any more. The coffee is good that hasn't changed at all and there are still...More
