Visited on a fine autumn day with family and cousins who had recommended it. Excellent menu choice from vegan to carnivore and all points in between. Most beach cafes tend to go for the "lowest common denominator" for quality but here the fare was good...More

Visited here today, two cups of tea and a local chocolate ice cream. All were lovely. Ice cream and cone delicious and tea was excellent served in completely recyclable cups. Lady and gentleman serving were both lovely. Would go back again to try the food!

After an awful experience at the Venus cafe in Dartington, we gave this one a go and were really glad we did. Despite being after 11.30, when breakfast items normally stop being served, the chef said he’d cook us a bacon bap. It was perfect!...More

Just what you need from a beach cafe but unlike a lot of others it's really well organised. Plenty of ham in our sarnies and decent coffee. Tables outside with a great view of the beach.

A busy beach take-away cafe, which delivers what it promises; burgers, paninis, pasties etc., uncomplicated fare, quickly served by friendly staff.

The food here was great. The veggie burger the best I have had anywhere and the chips were really tasty. Very good value for money. They do great meals for children with a little toy thrown in for good measure. Friendly staff and quick service....More
