Cafe by the beach

They were advertising a vegan burger and there were vegan pasties too. We just had a vegan magnum and a drink, lots of seating outside.

The vegan options weren’t labelled on the menu boards so had to que for ages before knowing if anything was vegan….the long wait was unnecessary and better organisation from the older staff is required. The two kids serving we’re trying their best but it was very slow…. We came for the vegan cream teas advertised in their website - blank faces from the kids serving 🙄

Pros: The toasted vegan cheese focaccia was tasty , Plenty of vegan mint Magnums, Nice location

Cons: Vegan options not labelled on menu boards , Staff weren’t aware what cakes were vegan, Expensive.

Great location, lots of seating

Came here to scuba dive, stopped for breakfast afterwards this morning (2 April). Heaters were on, coffee was great, there was a vegan pasty but I chose the vegan (may have been vegetarian) sausage bap. Unfortunately it was a plain soft white bap with no butter/spread with three of the driest sausages ever to have had the misfortune of being served up. Nothing else AT ALL inside. Even three packets of tomato and brown sauce were barely enough to bring this into the “edible” zone. Would visit again, staff and place itself were lovely. Steer well clear of the bap. Worst excuse for a sausage bap I’ve ever had. (And it was £4.50 too). No vegan cakes that were advertised but I didn’t ask either.

Pros: Heating, Lovely staff, Location

Cons: Not enough vegan options

Good coffee

We popped here in September, there weren't any vegan cream teas or pasties. You could get a soya latte, and they has beans, toast, potatoes, and a Flapjack. So, not amazing but some options.

A nice little cafe

Please bear in mind my review is during the pandemic.
At present it is a walk-in and take away place. You can sit outside when dry.
This was an extremely busy place as walkers etc from the beach of barafudle bay and coastal walkers were stopping by for a drink and snack.
There was only 2 vegan options which were a pasty and a soup. My wife and I each had a pasty and a tea with soy milk and were not disappointed, seriously the pasty was beyond amazing. So much flavour and a lot of it for £4:50
I would have given five stars but the car park fee was was steep as it’s National Trust grounds.

Pros: Homemade food with lots of flavour , Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive car park, Limited Menu during the pandemic

Vegan clotted cream

We couldn’t believe our eyes when this tiny cafe had vegan sausage rolls and vegan clotted cream scones on a rainy weekend in October. Good coffee, and the scones were light and delicious too

Pros: Vegan scones , Vegan clotted cream , Vegan sausage rolls

Cons: Fairly small, can get busy
