We stopped in to this restuarant for a breakfast roll and coffee and liked the menu so much, we stayed for lunch. Although we had been before, it was under different ownership and the renovations to the place were lovely.

Ate here today for lunch, food was fine but the servers were very rude, snapping at a family member and raising their voice. I saw another couple sat near being given a hard time too by 2 servers!

Easily missed as you stroll through this quaint Victorian seaside resort (and sometime home of Alfred Hitchcock), Le Cancaven is hidden behind a street side newspaper stand. This is perhaps to discourage tourists, as the Saturday we lunched, we were the only guests who were...More
