Great for breakfast. Have visited a number of times. very popular locally. Does a great breakfast. Always friendly. Good for families and whilst walking your dog on the beach, dog friendly in the outer cafe.
Every breakfast I’ve had at Carats has been brilliant……and there have been a few over the years !!
I live in France, but its one of my first stop-offs with my Daughters when I return and have NEVER had a bad word to say about Service,cleanliness or quality of food and the Staff are great!!
Excellent food & Very friendly team! On entering the premises we were greeted with a warm smile from friendly staff member Cheadam who immediately made us fell welcome. On taking our order we had a great lunch with excellent service. Value for money too! Will always recommend to friends! Thanks Carats! RF
Breakfast Went there last week for the first time and family had breakfast one vegetarian and one full English they both said it was very good and very reasonable so will be going again and it’s dog friendly in the conservatory, plenty of outside seating as well right by the sea!!
Private Party We had our third private party at Carats Cafe Bar last Saturday evening – After the regular closing time, it became our own venue for a little greyhound gathering. The staff were more than happy to move tables about and get the cafe sorted to our requirements. We had a beach walk at low tide returning to the cafe for a lovely buffet – Also catering for vegetarian and vegan members of our party. The staff as always made us feel really welcome, and we all had a great time. We will most certainly be back again – We are very lucky to have this beautiful venue available for private party hire.
