I lost count how many times we popped into the Look Out. Great for breakfast or coffee but equally as fab for summer tapas or a G&T! With fabulous views over the harbour on a sunny evening, why would you want to be anywhere else!

Great place for breakfast. Everything really well cooked. The lookout breakfast was just big enough. Poached eggs well cooked. Can't beat watching the boats eating great food.

A Funky new, river-side café ideally situated on the quayside in East Looe, with delicious local goodies, music and a view worth relaxing to. Coffee/tea, breakfast, home baked and Gluten free delights...yum! Unwind in the evening with wine and nibbles watching the sun go down.
