Cafes & Tearooms

Cakes, biscuits, scones and afternoon teas are a highlight of any break. The Isle of Wight is packed full of independent cafes and tearooms, serving up homemade lunches and sweet treats.

From quirky beachfront cafes offering fresh seafood or legendary crab pasties, to the more traditional tearooms in equally stunning locations serving homemade slabs of cake and pots of steaming tea you can’t go wrong. Enjoy watching the world go by at many of the pavement cafes and get your caffeine fix with lots specialising in artisan coffee, including some using their own unique blends.
