For those looking to escape to their boats on the weekend, there is no better place to stop and fuel up in the morning, with our particular favourites; ‘Smoked salmon served with scrambled eggs and baked cherry tomatoes, on toasted six cereal bread’ or of course a ‘traditional full English’!

Aside from Breakfast, the café produce stunning cakes from their in house bakery for an afternoon tea, or there is no better spot than to sit on the terrace on a Summer’s evening watching the world go by with a glass of wine and a fantastic Mediterranean Mezze board.

DRINK: Koh Noi, 292 Sandbanks Rd, Poole, BH14 8HX

Located in the upmarket residential area of Lilliput – home to ‘Salterns Marina’ – lies the recently opened Koh Noi. Famed for its Thai Tapas, in our opinion it is the liquid accompaniments is what make this establishment stand out!

With daily cocktail specials created by their in-house mixologist, there is always something new to try. Our favourites from the menu are; the ‘Kohtini – a light summer cocktail boasting homemade lemongrass syrup, mixed with Lychee liqueur, Vodka, lime and cranberry juice’ or perhaps something slightly more punchy, the ‘Mellow Maple – A strong and devilishly sweet mix of Jim Beam, sweet Vermouth and maple syrup with a hint of fresh orange’  – have a try and let us know what your new favourite is!

Our suggestion would be to berth in Salterns Marina for the evening, take the five minute stroll to Koh Noi, order a take away, enjoy a couple of cocktails while you wait and then stroll back to enjoy your very own Thai Feast on board your boat!
