This place is tiny and the seating very close together but the baking is delicious with a great choice, I had rhubard pie with custard and ice cream and the portion size was huge and very reasonably priced definitely worth visiting.

Visited in late afternoon for coffee. The setting in the harbour is idyllic but this eatery is not. We ate inside and it was over cluttered, poorly organised and shabby. The floor and tables needed a good clean. The baking is all home-made but possibly too extensive in range as it was spread over two tables as well as in fridges. Two new lemon meringue pies were half made on a customer table beside us but uncovered. The coffee and cake was fine but the surroundings ruined it for us. The young gentleman who served us looked neat but other girls looked untidy especially as they were handling food and ckeaning surface areas. A good decluttering, new covers on the tables and a reorganisation of serving area would transform this eatery but in the meantime we all not be returning.

Stopped here for a snack and ended up having a full meal. The food was excellent, the staff-particularly the young dark-haired man-were friendly and efficient and the little one could play on the beach while the adults ate Irish stew and rhubarb crumble in the sun - perfect.
