Excellent view of the west pier from the deckchairs on the terrace, and delicious cake. We ordered a mocha and a latte and couldn't tell the difference between the two which was quite odd, but worth going to sit and people watch from the terrace in a sunny spot which was sheltered from the wind.

Don’t bother if you want to eat breakfast before lunch.

We had to ask for service and then waited well over half an hour and still no coffee and no explanation.

The food was greasy and the bread dry and greasy. Yuk.

The manager wasn’t particularly helpful and we ended up leaving. No coffee. No food.

Had a wonderful coffee over the road in a seafood restaurant. They were lovely and couldn’t be nicer.

We escaped from the blustery rain into this immaculate cafe for good value hot drinks. Vasco made us feel at home. Everywhere was clean and socially distanced, yet still felt cosy with lovely fresh flowers.

Fab views. Nice decor. Cream tea for 4 £24, scones dry and hard. Would have been ok with price if scones had been soft and fresh. Won't be returning.

Two hot chocolates from a push button vending machine £6. You make your own mind up about that one. The place is tired and a bit shabby. The sofas were dirty. The music was so loud. We asked if it could be turned down just enough for us to hold a conversation the lady obliged by dialling it down at least 1 notch. Take away cups for inside with category 6 plastic lids. We won't be making another trip there are more relaxing places on a Sunday.
