This was next to our accommodation so we could go for a swim the stop here for a coffee and cake. The view is great with indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely park and right on the estuary. Coffee was great with a nice range of cakes and slices. Went here four or five times on our stay. So relaxing

This is a great cafe for oldies, mums and dads and kids of all ages. Seagulls are a bit competitive but still a great. Coffee and cake or juices all top class. Usually full of happy families.

This is one of those gems of places whether for brekkie lunch of just a coffee on your own or not a great place to go. The food is just great always a great selection. Plus its open earlier. You sit back and forget about the day very relaxing even the kids of other people don't bother you :-).

Superb cafe right on the beach. Good selections of drinks and homemade snacks and cakes. Great for breakfast too. Plenty of shade and good for dog owners as shade and water nearby. Excellent pleasant service. All in all a great cafe within easy reach of beach hotels
