Took my Mum for a cream tea. Kitchen door to outside was open, crushed boxes, overflowing bin and food scraps with flies all on view as we walked to main entrance. Lovely cream tea, but got berated for taking sugar beside till as didn't see the pot on the table 😞 Greasy tray and table. Cobwebs strewn from the ceiling,... More

Absolutely lovely cafe. The food is lovely. I had bacon and Brie baguette first time I have had it and can honestly say I haven't tasted anything better in a long time. Staff were brilliant and prices are very good. Under £9 for the baguette and a pot of tea. Will definitely be returning a lot more

We visited The Lookout within our first few minutes of arriving in Weymouth. We were staying further down at the Waterside but decided this place was easy to get to and gave us an amazing view of Weymouth. We had the Mac and Cheese, Halloumi Pitta and Cream Tea. EVERYTHING was lovely. The Mac and Cheese was the best one... More

When we got them that was all it was , bit of goats cheese scattered on, with a tightly spreaded marinate. No side salad , for £6.95 we had definitely been stitched up, good job we ordered the...

The view across Weymouth Bay from here is just stunning and in good weather there are lots of tables outside to choose from. On less than perfect days there is seating inside but it’s quite small and seemed claustrophobic and noisy when full. On the very busy lunchtime we visited the staff were working hard but it was our bad... More

The Lookout Cafe is well worth the hike up the hill. On a blustery day you can sit inside and watch the forces of nature across the bay. On a good day sit outside to enjoy to sunshine you might even be treated to a hang glider or two. Definitely a good kite spot. With lovely home baked cakes and... More

The lookout cafe is in the most wonderful location overlooking Weymouth Bay. This cafe delivers the most delicious food whether for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. The Eggs Benedict are particularly scrummy!

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
