Stopped off for a quick coffee whilst walking the coastal path at Gurnard. Friendly staff. Good menu. Lovely view over the sea. Limited parking adjacent but you can park higher up and walk down. Veggie breakfast on offer.

We came here when staying nearby last summer and have been looking forward to a return visit - well worth the wait! Family friendly, delicious food, lovely views, right on the beach.

Wanted an afternoon tea and got it...at a fair price. But better than that, top quality, great scones, jam and clotted cream, plus a big pot of proper tea! Friendly, helpful staff too.

Pop along here for a very tasty breakfast with fantastic views. They are always busy so it is better to pre book your table.

We do not often walk into beach-side cafes and see reserved signs on the tables, so we were intrigued to try out the Watersedge for Sunday lunch. We were not disappointed and ordered T42 with bacon and mushroom baguette for Mrs J and gurnard fillets...More
