We were staying in Blackpool as a group of 4 and had breakfast here each day. Excellent service and great quality food - I had the large breakfast the first day and was overwhelmed by the amount and quality of the food and cooking. No...mass produced straight sausages here. Bacon delicious and our poached eggs cooked to perfection along with the fried bread. Had the eggs benedict the other days and it was delicious with black pudding and again perfect poached eggs and a home made hollandaise sauce. Everyone enjoyed what they ate and the service and staff were excellent and friendly . Contrary to another review placed here - we found the cafe to be clean.More

I’m gluten intolerant and it is still hard to find a place that does gluten free breakfasts. The Compass Cafe could not do enough to accommodate me and my normal eating friends. The customer service was excellent, the staff friendly and professional, the prices very...reasonable, we went every morning. The cafe was very clean. Needless to say we will definitely be back.More

Sometimes, and especially when on holiday in Blackpool, it's nice to have a lovely breakfast (full English of course) in the afternoon. This is the perfect place for that - a lovely, hearty meal with a very friendly vibe. The food is top-notch and incredibly...reasonably priced for what you get. I've had both the vegan breakfast and the regular full English - both are exceptional. I love how the vegan option isn't just thrown together random rubbish just for the sake of being vegan, but really nicely balanced flavours and textures that don't leave one wishing they'd gone the other side of their flexitarian ways that day. :) My husband had the large version of the full English at our last visit - HUGE, and served in a skillet. So cool! Also they provide ice with cold beverages which for me is a huge plus. Anyway, it's amazing! :)More

Best breakfast in town. Great choice/options. Outstanding service and gluten free available with no trouble. So good we've gone every morning and plan to go again tomorrow. Coffee and tea are so good. Can't book, first come first served so get there early. Opens at...9am and by 10 its busy for the day. If I could make it 6 stars on the review I wouldMore

We ate breakfast at Compass Cafe every day for the 3 days we stayed in Blackpool. It was so nice that we travelled from the South end to North end every morning on the tram to get breakfast. Lovely staff. Big portions. Great sausage and...bacon. They also offer great vegetarian breakfast options also which is hard to find in Blackpool. You get your money's worth with the full english breakfast.More

We went here for breakfast, first time back since COVID; it won’t be the last. The place is clean and well run, the service is very friendly and efficient. We ordered tea for two and I ordered the classic breakfast but the large version, my...other half had the classic, the prices very reasonable. In addition it was good to see choice of eggs: scrambled, fried or poached. The tea was in nice big pots so plenty for our stay (asked for refill of hot water). My large classic came in a frying pan (classic comes on a plate) and it was very filling (see picture). There was a delay with my partners classic as it went to the wrong table but they were very apologetic and offered a complimentary drink while she waited. This was good service and not a problem. All in all just what you would want from a good cafe, we will be back.More
