What an amazing experience! The sun was shining but the wind was blowing. The staff were totally attentive and didn't show any frustration due to the weather. The food was very impressive, and well presented. I look forward to visiting again.

This place was busy and plenty of people about. A nice breakfast overlooking the beach. The flies were a pain in the backside but nonetheless, was a great start to the day.

Arrived on a Saturday morning with a group for breakfast. The cafe was very busy but we did not have to wait long for a table. Food was good as was the service. Great place to have breakfast overlooking the beach.
