The queue to be served was long but the staff were efficient in keeping it moving quickly. I ordered 2 latte's and 2 chocolate biscuits the cost was just over £5. The man in... More

A trip to the seaside is not complete with a good old fashioned ice cream :) staff are patient and friendly. Ice cream is heavenly. Next time we will try the cafe part.

Beautiful place to go for a coffee and snack with views to die for. Plenty choice of delicious foods and their legendary ice cream is the best you can buy. Well worth a visit

The portions are really big and probably enough for two people. Tried the... More

Hi we were at the seafront last week and stopped at Minchella's along the sea front. We intended to have a coffee and cake, but looking at the snack food decided on something a bit more filling. I have never tasted a sandwich so good as the HOT! Ham and peas pudding roll. The ham was so thick and it... More
