Took my 8 year old daughter for a birthday breakfast. The food was good and the service really friendly. They even sang happy birthday to her which made her day!

The Prawn Cocktails at £6.40 each had 5 medium sized prawns in one and 6 in the other. The two salmon fish cakes had less than a dessert spoon of salmon between... More

A friendly welcome from the waitress who was unfailingly pleasant throughout. Broken coffee machine so disappointed not to be able to have coffee with Sunday breakfast, only tea available. (Hopefully a temporary situation.) My bacon sandwich was very good. The scrambled egg, whilst good, could not be described as 'creamy' which was what the menu promised. What I really didn't... More

Although the decor is nice & the staff were welcoming at first, despite it being Feb & us being the only customers in there, as soon as we said we only wanted to order drinks not food the service changed dramatically. The menus were snatched from our hands & our coffees were dumped on the table, never to see a... More

I don't like complaining. I really don't. I generally leave that to other family members who are experts, but after visiting the Harbour Cafe yesterday have a few words to say, and maybe the owners can learn a thing or two. It was around 2pm and we wanted a light lunch. Having seen the 'All Day Breakfast' sign outside (in... More

Very good and prompt service for lunch. Disappointed no diet coke but Gannon and eggs were good if a little overpriced for lunch.
