Really highly rate the food - my husband and I ate lunch here and both thought it was exceptionally good. Home made, fresh and delicious!

First impressions were of an eclectic non-chain interesting independent place but much as we would like to love it it was sadly just messy and a bit dirty. Very broad clientele- a couple straight out of Made in Chelsea, a family with young kids, a...More

Unique place for a coffee opposite the sea front with nice home cooked cakes. Well worth a visit if looking for somewhere different to the chain cafes.
