Probably the best value and quality coffee shop/ tea shop on the Isle of Wight. We had walked from Newport and were going to walk back and were in Cowes on a November day, cloudy, calm but were looking for a refreshment stop. Tiffins was excellent, clean, very good quality food, baguettes etc made up fresh in front of you... More

This is a great cafe for a bacon baguette. Moored here and none of us fancied cooking or messing up the boat. Generous portions and good lattes too. It has two entrances one close to the marina and the other on the high street. Quick service and take-aways too - if you are in a hurry.

Never seen such a huge choice of sandwich/baguette fillings .... and if you can't see what you want, then just ask and they'll make up whatever takes your fancy - apparently they've had some really strange requests. Everything made up to order so no stale offerings here. Friendly staff, clean café, ideal place for lunch and to watch the world... More

Popped in and was surprised at the options available. You choose a sandwich or baguette and then add your fillings and it's made up for you. Great sandwiches and drinks, good service . Great for a lunchtime snack :)

This is great place for breakfast and lunch, they have counter where you can choose what you want in a roll or sandwich so it's tailor made

Always take the opportunity to take a break at Tiffins when in Cowes. If the sun is shining nice to be able to sit outside and watch the world go by with a Tiffins Yoghurt shake and one of their fabulous baguettes. In the winter....decent coffee and plenty of room inside. Staff are always friendly and service good.

Popped in for coffee and a BLT. Friendly, cheerful staff. Good range of food and sandwich fillings! My fully-loaded BLT baguette was just the job! I also ordered a delicious prawn mayo on brown - it was packed with prawns!!! So two huge sandwiches and a lovely coffee was just £10.25! Amazing value!!!

These people serve the best milkshakes with frozen yoghurt! Absolutely amazing, the standard chocolate one is where it's at! For only £3 you get a lovely cold thick shake with a blob of frozen yogurt on top, a strawberry, flake and little spoon to eat it. Come here every time I come to Cowes without fail. Go there now!!!

Thank Tom H
