My husband & I loved our set afternoon tea for two. The sandwiches were freshly made with plenty of filling. The scones were delicious and the rocky road to die for! At £16 for two it was under priced. I have paid £16 a head and not enjoyed the food nearly as much.We liked the unusual decor and the owner... More

I met a friend here for lunch and we both enjoyed the cosy and welcoming atmosphere. There is a varied breakfast menu that is served till 3pm, and a good range of sandwiches, baguettes and panini. The selection of cakes is wonderful, it's hard to chose just one! The only downside that some may encounter is the steep staircase up... More

Hi, thank you for your review, and very pleased you and your friend enjoyed your visit, yes it is a shame about the stairs but we have done all we can, to make them safe as possible, by putting a banister on each side of the wall and putting a grip on each step. I hope we will see you... More

Had an afternoon tea party there to celebrate my 60th birthday. Noreen was very helpful at the organizing stage and very friendly on the day. Everything had been freshly made: the sandwiches, the scones that melted in the mouth and the cake, all presented on pretty stands. The tea was served in a proper teapot with china cups and saucers.... More

Visited this little café looking for tea and cake: we couldn't have done better. Friendly, helpful service, a great cup of tea and the slice of cake was not only enormous but extremely tasty. A very decent pot of tea, and all very reasonably priced too. Location good: just a short walk from the quay.
