Decor: funky and plenty to look at on the walls as it adjoins the cinema, lovely old building, if you want to be picky the black plastic table covers are the only thing that remind you ' it's just a cafe ' because some people get confused it's not the Chewton glen but it's one of the coolest little cafe's...

A most unpretentious, high quality cafe, next to the art-deco REX cinema in Wareham. Lovely staff and great quirky film nostalgia to add to the atmosphere. A real experience...... Thank you everyone Dominic Santini The Hardye Wrinkly Bikers

The toast was fresh, the coffee was good and a good strength and the bacon was thick cut and locally sourced. The eggs were nicely 'over... More
