  • nice staff. sandwich was tasty. 4/5 because I got dirty glass, when I pointed they quickly replaced.
  • Lovely scrambled egg on toast
  • Lovely Breakfast but tea could have been hotter!
  • Gorgeous cakes - all home made and fresh every day. Good hot coffee. Delicious menu. Had yummy home made French onion soup and a cheese Souffle to die for, for lunch the other day. Lovely staff and atmosphere. Best food in Portsmouth in my opinion.
