I promised I would write a review but have been a little tardy! We only had coffee here, but, it was the best cappuccino we had in all of the UK! If you're passing, do stop and have a coffee; you won't regret it!

This past weekend has seen lovely weather so to sit outside by the beach in a first batch of sun is a real treat. To do so before lots of 'tourists' arrive is key. Food and beverages are swift, hot and well priced.

Brilliant little café - hidden gem. Great daily specials and fab service. Today we were delighted with tomatoes, poached eggs on special chunky bread soaked in pesto and covered with rockets leaves - the best lunch I have tasted in a long while!
