I love this little place ... used to cycle there for breakfast regularly but moved further down the coast and don't get there so often now. On a Summer morning, a fantastic place to sit outside with a sea view. Love it.

Cheap sausages, bread not great, bacon under done,everything deep fried? Dogs everywhere,staff ok, best thing is the easy parking. Amazing location! Better quality sausages and chunky bread would make the world of difference.

We have been here several times for lunch and always been impressed but this time it was for breakfast, we both had egg and bacon sandwiches perfectly cooked, but on the menu it said thick cut bread and we imagined a nice fresh crusty loaf,...More

I have eaten here a number of times and in the past it has been very nice. The cafe was very busy on this visit and the food seems to have suffered. The whole plate was swimming in oil and when I mentioned this to...More

Reviewed on Feb. Lovely friendly people. Generally food okay but sausages are still revolting. Obviously popular amongst locals.

Tables inside and out most of which have sea views. Pleasant staff, we had their breakfast, two slices of bread and butter and a mug of tea for £5 each. Not many places to stop for food and drink on this part of the coast...More

This was our second time here. It's a good old cafe which does a tasty breakfast where you can sit inside or enjoy the views outside over looking the sea. Good price to.

Asked to have an egg instead of beans on a standard breakfast and was charged 90p for the privilege!!! I have never been charged elsewhere for a simple swap. The food itself was distinctly below average. Will not come back nor will the people I...More

Located next to the tennis courts in Palm Bay Avenue, overlooking the sea. It's a beautiful location, but more importantly the food is wonderful and the prices affordable. The staff are friendly. I've been going there quite some time and would have put it on here a long time ago if I had realised about your site. I cannot recommend them enough, my husband and I love it there and its not only a great place to eat but a nice afternoon out as well.
