Very good breakfast and not long to wait. A little expensive but it is in Cowes centre so worth the money.

Really good cafe in the middle of Cowes. Simple menu - good home cooking. My dog makes a bee-line for Sails whether they are open or closed. It must be something to do with the plate of bacon scraps provided.

Excellent quality food. Warm and friendly service. This little cafe delivers big on freshness quality and service. Our first ever meal on the island. Very dog friendly. Would eat here again and recommend.

A great pop in cafe, reasonably priced venue ideal for a quick snack or a much needed drink to refresh - staff really friendly. Service speedy and some interesting side items to take on your way.... Second visit so will go again
