Excellent location right on the sea front on the beach. We had fish and chips here and it was lovely looking across the beach and seafront. Food was lovely and prices were good

On the approach to the beach, this is very conveniently situated for morning coffee, lunches and afternoon ice cream. We used it serveral times. The coffess were a decent size and reasonably priced. The service was very efficient and food freshly cooked to order.

Had some chips by the seaside as you do. Nothing to write home about although friendly service and comparatively priced.

After a day in Looe we popped in here for a coffee and ice cream. As many other reviews have mentioned the view from the cafe is lovely. Even on an overcast day it's great to look out and spot sailboats on the sea whilst...More

Great place for cooked breakfast or sandwiches and fish & chips for lunch with an amazing view and chance to hide from the seagulls!

This cafe has a wonderful view of the sea and beach. Not sure about the cuisine, but I would recommend stopping and having a coffee looking out over the sea.

I visited here on 17th June as the other places in Looe where busy. The food is not worth what you pay for cause the portion size is small but the food is expensive.

Me, my partner and our 10 month old bubba had a few hours on the beech, called in here for a quick chippy lunch. All food was cooked fresh so I didn’t mind the 10 minute wait. Reasonably priced and tasted lovely.

I ordered the tuna sandwich with salad and I’m going to say it was one of the best sandwiches I’ve had in a very long time. Great views of the beach. Charming staff. You’ll not be disappointed even if the sun isn’t out, pop in....More
