Went in after walking the dog had tea and coffee with two toasties that were lacking in filling but they give you crisps.Then had a waffle and a heated scone which was a complete waste of money butter rock hard and the scone when I soften the butter up crumbled when cut.Waste of money.

Lovely little spot with a lovely little cafe. Coffee and simple lunch were delicious and the ice cream is unbelievable. Wish we had it by us, I'd be in every day!

Was recommended by a colleague to go there. So we went, and found the young staff rude and not engaging, which put us off in spending our money. Shame

This is a tourist hot spot in summer, as it's just a few steps away from the beach, but even in winter time it can get busy. There are no toasted tea cakes, but usually scones available , and the usual range of coffees to be expected in an Italian café. But it's the ice cream which draws most people.
There is another small café in the town centre and one in the park operated by the same family.

We had heard about Minchella's from friends and in a very cold December day between Christmas and New Year we called in for Hot Chocolate. The cafe was clean and tidy and a good variety of food available. Ordered Hot Chocolates and ice creams, the ice cream menu wasn't as extensive as anticipated as we are a family of ice cream eaters but our choice was lovely. Hot Chocolate was delicious and just what was needed on a cold day. Yes, I know ice cream doesn't suit a cold day but that has never stopped us. My only criticism was although the service was pleasant, friendly and delivered with a smile, I noted that one member of staff was constantly playing with their hair and then handling food without gloves or hand washing. Not particularly hygienic.
