Popped in for lunch. Not been before. Very good feel to the place and it was jam packed. So we did wait a while before our food came. I had the ploughman's crepe which came with salad and a nice red onion chutney. Niki had the smoked mackerel which came with bubble. But there was also a lovely beetroot and... More

My husband and I come here at least twice a month. I always order the Mushroom Stack which is two large portobello mushrooms stacked with tomato, humus, and I swap out cheese for halloumi in a soft seeded bun. Potato wedges and salad are served on the side. My husband ordered the Chicken Stack. This has chicken, avocado and bacon... More

We visited St Leonard's on a day trip out and came across the Love Cafe whilst looking for a place to have lunch. Tucked back a row from the seafront, it is a quirky little homely place. We got a warm welcome and had the pittas and hummus to share along with some Potato wedges. The hummus was homemade and... More

I can't say enough good things about this place . They even offered gluten free sour dough bread to accompany my delicious breakfast . All this... More

Fab friendly place to eat, only ever been here for breakfast and every time we do it's absolutely delicious. Incredible full English, tasty breakfast pancakes and bubble and squeak. Really enjoy eating here when we're up that end of town. It's always packed. That says everything really. Try it for yourself. A*

Have been here a couple of times now, great "home cooked" food, coffee is really good! Pet friendly with a bowl of water for your pet and extra treat! A yummy sausage for free!! Staff are lovely! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Lovely atmosphere, great food, service a tad slow but we were in no hurry. Brunch was delicious. Four of us ordered different food and all was very good, hot and served with a smile.

Just stumbled upon this place when taking a walk and popped in for a bit. Loved its shabby chic look, full of charm. Staff really friendly with a warm feel, and food was lovely! Highly recommend this place for a light lunch (dependant on what you order as some of the food coming out of the kitchen was huge!) or... More

Don't be fooled, we didn't just visit in September - it's weekly (at least!) that you can find us trying new things or sticking to what we love. Breakfasts, lunches and wonderful specials abound, you'll be spoiled for choice. If, like me however, you tend to read the negative reviews (not very many here) before a visit to somewhere new,...
