The pirates chest is still up and running with Bob, Barbra & Eugene at the helm.. Just location changed to Dawlish beach right side of the viaduct
Thats good news
I think that I would prefer to use the Rock Pool Café.
Just my opinion.
My personal preference is that I dont fancy sitting there with all the trains going by making a noise, and having loads of people walking by all the time.
At least with the Rock Pool Café, it is a more 'open' area and quieter, plus you can still see the trains go by if wanted.
I hope this answers your question.
Enjoy your sunny Sunday.
