Called into this cafe for a coffee which we found very good. The meals and the options are very good although a bit pricey

Great lunch in a great location, but very little room indoors for families with a buggy. If the weather's good, this won't be an issue, as you really need to see the view!

Luckily we arrived before what seemed like half of Weymouth arrived for Sunday breakfast. Great views, friendly service & a fab breakfast to start our day.

We were just out for a walk on Bowleaze when the weather got a bit blustery and we saw this place and decide to go in for a coffee and some shelter! However, once we were inside what appears to be a fairly basic café,...More

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
