If you are looking somewhere to go for a coffee and traybake with a beautiful view this is well worth a visit. The staff were very friendly and the traybakes to die for. Comfortable seating and great for a catch up over coffee with family...More

Bitterly disappointed with the changes in Roughans. No friendly staff, no buns you would want to eat and the hard seats are back. We have been coming to Roughans for years and I think its time we found somewhere else unfortunately. Major improvements last Christmas...More

A friend and I visited Roughan's on Wednesday past and had a pretty disappointing experience. I had been telling him all about Roughan's as it genuinely is one of my favourite ice-cream/coffee shops on the prom; the views, the food, it's all usually very good,...More

The view from the cafe is amazing! While there is not an extensive menu for lunch, it excels in what it provides. Not over priced like some other cafes in areas. Scones are freshly prepared and great. Only thing I would like is proper fresh...More
