The Southsea Food Tour – The Harbour Coffee Shop

I have passed The Harbour Coffee Shop countless times on my trips to Commerical Road, but I am shocked that it was only this week I paid it a visit. The cafe, which was once the Music Room, is easily drowned out by fast food shops such as Subway, Burger King and McDonald’s. This is … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – The Harbour Coffee Shop

The Southsea Food Tour – Southsea Village

Before it was Southsea Village, 81 Palmerston Road used to be Owen’s. I never went in there myself but, from what I heard, it was the kind of place where you would stick to the floor and if there wasn’t a fight then something was seriously wrong. It was rough and ready and always seemed … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Southsea Village

The Southsea Food Tour – Southsea Beach Cafe

On a gloomy day, I found myself having breakfast on Eastney Esplanade, watching the seagulls battle the oppressive wind. I was sat in the popular Southsea Beach Cafe which is found just next to South Parade Pier.

I pass it almost every day and peer inside. It looks impressive but oddly enough, I have never … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Twins

The Southsea Food Tour – Cinnamon Cafe

Cinnamon Cafe rests on Winter Road and despite despising cinnamon, I cannot hate this lovely little eatery.  A girl in my class at university called Giada recommended it to me and I’m very grateful she did. Wedged between an Indian takeaway and an abandoned shop, it looks pristine and welcoming from the outside. Cinnamon Cafe … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Cinnamon Cafe

Open lunchtimes and evenings Monday to Thursday, and all day Friday to Sunday, Sakura is available for all occasions. Whether you want a light lunch or … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Sakura

The Southsea Food Tour – Rancho’s Steak House

I have always wanted to go to Rancho’s as, not only have many people recommended it, but steak is also my favourite food. So, when I walked through those front doors I was full of anticipation. But, where I dreamed Rancho’s to be a delight, I only found it to be a disappointment. I booked … Read moreThe Southsea Food Tour – Rancho’s Steak House
