We stopped at Steam as we were getting on the ferry from.Cowes to Southampton. The hot drinks were nice and the 2 ladies that served us were lovely. Very customer service orientated. Nothing was too much trouble. (Date of visit 30th August) would recommend.

Arrived a little early for the ferry, and popped in for a quick coffee. This was actually one of the better cups of coffee I've had on the island. Quiet waiting area (at least at 8am). Good selection of cakes to keep the kids quiet.

I usually stop in here for a coffee and snack when I get the redjet and am too early for my bus. I like the friendly service and its a good place to sit and watch the world go by.

Usually coffee on ferries is pretty grim but not at Steam. Also they do very good hot chocolate. Not so keen on the bacon rolls as the bacon is a bit fatty for me and I like it well cooked not too rare. But that's...More
