The Lookout Cafe is well worth the hike up the hill. On a blustery day you can sit inside and watch the forces of nature across the bay. On a good day sit outside to enjoy to sunshine you might even be treated to a hang glider or two. Definitely a good kite spot. With lovely home baked cakes and... More

The lookout cafe is in the most wonderful location overlooking Weymouth Bay. This cafe delivers the most delicious food whether for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. The Eggs Benedict are particularly scrummy!

The sausages must've Been pre packed... More

We called in this cafe following a lovely walk. It is the first time I have been to this cafe and it was very busy. Both customers and staff were very friendly and we enjoyed our brunch very much. The service was excellent. I am looking forward to going back to try the lunch menu.

Visited the Lookout on Saturday with friends and had the large portion of Bubble and Squeak which was really filling. The views across Weymouth Bay over to Portland are truly stunning I thoroughly recommend a visit but get there early as seating is limited.

Having completed a blustery walk down the beach, the cafe was a very welcome sight. Such a choice of food! Breakfast was still being served so we both had a cooked breakfast which was excellent . Thank you!
