A busy cafe which is sandwiched between a lovely art studio shop filled with local artists treasures for sale, through passed their cabinet filled with divine homemade rolls , salads and sweets , extensive blackboard selection and busy kitchen out towards their outdoor dining which you can enjoy the sights of the waterfront of the Town Basin.

And easy “go to place” where there are lots of options for all ages. From a quick bite to eat, a work meeting or an enjoyable longer lunch with friends.

Highly recommended. Staff are efficient and friendly.

We were staying on a yacht in the Town Basin. Just meters away no less than 4 restaurants were offering breakfast. We had a Muesli starter and a 'small' cooked breakfast...sort of a half English Breakfast. It was spot on and the service was quick. There were a large number of LPG heaters within the restaurant (seems archaic nowadays) and parts of the restaurant are used as a thoroughfare to other activities within the building. Good tea and coffee and the staff were friendly. Might go back....?

Came for lunch had their spicy chicken in two or three taco shells. Too much Thai chilly sauce on the chicken, the tacos were almost inedible (doughy) and no dressing on the side salad!!Prime location adjacent to the sea, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of cabinet food, paninis, huge sausage rolls and nice looking cakes. Menu available but you need to order and pay at the counter; we won’t be rushing back!!
