Lovely little coffee shop with views of the sea in Whiting Bay. Home made treats and a selection of drinks. Seating inside and outside. The staff were very friendly and stopped to chat to us.

Just what the name says. But has tea, and great hot chocolate, and scones. Seating inside and out; outside looks right into the bay, across the road. Friendly staff.

Great little coffee stop, fantastic views of the bay out the front, great service and first rate cakes and coffee. Had the scone with jam and cream, carrot cake and Apple pie, all very tasty. Well worth a stop.
