We stopped at this place for a coffee to go, but staff was so kind and the place was so cosy with an amazing view to the sea that we decided to take our time and drink it there. I loved the place.

Not impressed by the terrible service. Unfriendly At the point of ordering and then we waited 35 minutes. Good coffee, but the wait left us with a bad experience. Won't be back in a hurry.

We went there on live music night and it was entertaining and fun. Food was good as was the service and they are very tolerant of kids.

We revisited for breakfast and found it just as good as in last December. Fantastic beach location and breezes. Excellent coffee, nice cooked breakfast, good toasted sandwiches, and we took away some yummy cakes for afternoon tea. Friendly staff and good service. Highly recommended.
