Location and views are spectacular and the only things going for this place which is why the high ratings here are so deceiving. Otherwise it is just a very basic greasy spoon where doggies preside. If it was in the middle of town we wouldn't go near the place and doubt very much whether we will return. Coffee was like... More

The best thing about this place is the panoramic view of Plymouth sound. The cafe makes the most of it with glazing all round. The menu is basic cafe fair and the premises has seen better days. That said, the setting is second to none.

Basic cafe with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Ample seating inside. Very fairly priced. A cuppa and a toasted teacake £2. Lovely. Makes it affordable to make it a treat as and when. Thankyou.

I visited this café after it was recommended to me by a fellow shipping photographer when I was in Plymouth. The ham sandwich and can of drink that I ordered to take away cost me £4.20 and it was very tasty. The café also serves hot food including breakfasts. There are some amazing views to be had overlooking Plymouth Sound... More

We love the location of this café at Jennicliff, and always visit it when we stay in Plymouth. The views over the Sound are hard to beat, and the parking is free. The staff are friendly and the food is basic but well cooked. It's not the best looking building, and the customer toilet is basic, so the whole experience... More

Visited here on a showery day with great views over Plymouth sound. Huge showers, so the warm dry cafe was excellent. Their pasties were big good pasty and a decent filling. Good teas and an excellent hot chocolate. Also a dog friendly cafe......
