Had a very pleasant lunch here. Panini, salad, coffee & cake went down very well. Staff were friendly & helpful. A great place to sit and relax after visiting the Portland Basin Museum.

Had coffee and cake sat outside in the sun, admiring the view. It was busy at Sunday lunchtime they did say they were short staffed that day but I thought the service was quick and the staff were very friendly.

We visited recently during a visit to the Portland Basin Museum. The food is cheap and cheerful. I would however avoid the BLT. Cold bacon with more fat than meat was completely unappetizing.
