A lovely find with yummy cakes and a good cuppa, but we can sympathise with an earlier reviewer about the teabag and cup of hot water. Aesthetically it doesn't look great, but it is a good idea as some like it brewed longer than others....More

What a super little cafe with such friendly service. Crab Sandwiches excellent. A friend and I called in last Sunday around 1.30 and enjoyed the delights of this beachside gem!!! Weather perfect for a stroll along the pebbles watching the boisterous surf!!!

I went for lunch one day as I'd heard about their beautiful crab sandwiches. The sandwich was delicious, the scenery is fantastic and the service was friendly and efficient. I recommend it.
