We popped in to Muse on our way home from the Airport and decided to have the full English breakfast and a flat white coffee.
As usual the quantity and quality of the produce we had was fantastic , two sausages , three pieces of bacon cooked exactly how I like it , two fried eggs , two hash browns , mushrooms cooked in garlic butter , half a cooked tomato, pot of baked beans and two pieces of toast , the whole breakfast was very tasty indeed with a lovely flat white coffee to follow.
We love Muse , the food is always excellent and the staff are always very friendly and for the amount of food you get it is very good value.
Keep up the good work ,
you are always consistent every time we go. Thank you xxx

Good but not outstanding place situated further to the north of St.Peter Port's main sea frontage, up towards the business district. Possibly this is an explanation for the higher than average prices attached to the lunch options. Nice enough though.

Great spot for a quick lunch or brunch and great they serve lunch until late in the morning! Fresh orange juice really good! Coffee definitely not the best! Really nice to be able to sit outside too!

It has been a while since I visited Muse, but when passing I saw the new menu posted in their window and the bao buns immediately caught my eye. It's very hard to find somewhere that serves a decent bao in Guernsey - believe me, I've looked! - so I was keen to try them.
I have visited twice recently and ordered the bao selection on both occasions. The menu gives you the choice of three steamed bao buns for £9.50 from a list of five fillings: pork belly with BBQ sauce, fried vegetables with sweet chilli sauce, fried chicken with sweet chilli sauce, duck with hoisin and spring onions, or fried coconut prawns with sweet chilli sauce. Having now tried all fillings, I can safely say that the vegetable patty and duck were my favourites. The pork and chicken were a little dry and over-fried for my liking, and the prawns were similarly dry though not unpleasant. The fried vegetable patty was very tasty, with a crispy outside and soft, flavourful inside. The duck was very moist and well-flavoured with the hoisin, carrot and spring onion filling. The buns themselves were fine - not on a par with others I've had, but better than the majority of baos available in Guernsey.
Though the fillings were a bit hit-or-miss, I still enjoyed this new lunch option and hope it remains a fixture on the menu. It's a nice change to the usual sandwich or burger options you may expect on most lunch menus and I would recommend giving it a try!

It's a good little place for coffee and light bites. Coffee is good, food may not be so consistent. Some items on the menu are very tasty, others are a little bland.

Shared a coffee with a friend in this old favourite of mine. Nothing changes it just does what is says on the tin.

I dropped into Muse for the first time in ages, set on trying the pancakes from their breakfast menu. I had tried a couple of days before and arrived too late, so I resolved to be there early.
I was seated right away with my choice of table and looked over the Saturday breakfast/brunch menu. There were several tempting options, and the scrambled eggs with salmon was a hit during my last visit, but I stuck by the reason I came in and ordered the Manhattan Pancakes with berries with a pot of tea.
For the price I paid - only £3.95 for the Pancakes Manhattan - what I received was a feast! Five generously sized pancakes, cooked perfectly, sprinkled with icing sugar, with a pot of maple syrup and berry compote on the side. The berries were quite acidic, which I personally like, and worked well with the sweetness of the pancakes, but I imagine it may be too sharp for some.
All in all, this was another excellent trip to a quality café, and one that didn't break the bank. The staff are always friendly and the interior is light, airy and comfortable. I'd definitely recommend a visit!

Popped in for some breakfast I had the traditional fry up and my wife had the pancakes.
Every thing was well cooked and well presented and arrived quickly.
Will go again.

I used to really like muse and if you're into salad or a lighter lunch it's a really nice place to go. They changed the menu twice and used to do really nice food however, it's no longer for me.

Enroute to an interesting little antique shop I can across this upmarket cafe. They offered an interesting intriguing selection of small bites and drinks. I selected for a rather nice Guernsey Milk Shake.

This restaurant is popular with local residents, as well as visitors. The service is prompt, the menu features salads and light meals, and the portions are colossal. It is good value, friendly and reliable.

essentially they just copy what other restaurants are doing around the down get your own menu ideas. The food is the middle of the road not great not bad not memorable.

On a quick trip home from my secondment to Hong Kong I went for breakfast with my old team. They wanted to go somewhere close by but I insisted on Muse.
The breakfast food was very good and enjoyed by all. However for those of us who ordered tea there was a problem initially.
There were five pots of tea and all of them were tepid at best. The waitress therefore took away our tea pots and our cups and eventually , half way through breakfast, brought hot tea but then there were no tea cups and we had to wait again for replacement tea cups.
No apology was offered just an excuse that it was early in the morning (8am is not early in my book) and the water had not yet heated up. Surely you check the water has boiled BEFORE making the tea?
Food was good but customer service lacking on this particular occasion.

I was in St Peter Port and decided to eat out. It was just after 2pm but I remembered that Muse served their lunch menu until 2.30 and that it would be far less crowded by then.
And it was pretty quiet.I'm veggie so ordered the feta cheese salad which was a special today. A big bowl of salad with some garlic bread. Delicious!
I'll be back...

We walked by the Muse and decided to have a late afternoon snack and drink. We were so impressed with the staff and manager that we returned for dinner a couple of nights later. They are not usually open for dinner, but it was during Tennerfest so they were open Thurs.-Sat. nights. We were very impressed with our dinners. Some of the best food we had in St. Peter Port. We haven't tried them for lunch, but I suspect they are one of the best lunch spots in town.

We stopped at Muse early afternoon for a much needed coffee. We were shown to a table and given a menu each, when the waitress returned and we ordered coffees, she asked if we wanted anything else, when we replied no, she said she would leave the menu's with us for a few minutes.
When she returned with the coffee's she asked again if we wanted anything else. I felt like we then received a disapproving look when we said no thank you.

My partner and I used to make regular visits to Muse on a Saturday morning for breakfast because we loved it so much. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and polite. We hadn't been for a couple of months so we decided to go this morning and take my partners daughter along with us.
We were greeted by a waitress who let us choose our table and noticed there had been a turnover in staff. We sat down and after a few minutes ordered our hot drinks, which came a few minutes after and were just about warm.
We then ordered our breakfast, I had eggs benedict, my partner had the muse breakfast and his daughter had the pancakes. A few minutes after we'd ordered, my partners daughter decided she wanted a couple of pieces of bacon with her pancakes. I asked the waiting staff if this was possible and she said no because the chef had already started cooking our breakfasts!! How long does a couple of slices of bacon take under the grill?? 20 minutes later our food came. My eggs were slightly cold, my partners fried eggs were burnt. We didn't say anything to the staff as we're not usually ones to complain. We were sat near the kitchen and at one point there seemed to be an altercation with the members of staff which doesn't particularly look good to customers. It seemed as if the waiting staff didn't know whether they were coming or going. I finished before my partner and his daughter and as soon as I put my knife and fork down, the plate was swiped away off the table. If the cafe was busy then I would have understood but there was only about 8 other people in there. Manners cost nothing these days!! We won't be rushing back in a hurry!

I happened to be in Guernsey, on business, by pure co-incidence over the 'liberation day' weekend- lucky me! I'd had breakfast in Muse on the Friday and thought the service was great and the food 1st rate. I loved the fact that all the ingredients of my hangover fry-up had been given consideration in provenance and presentation. It definitely hit the spot. I sat in a sunny window and was truly looked after.
On Saturday, I thought I'd head back for a lazy brunch with the papers. However, I hadn't prepared myself for how busy it would be. The staff seemed stressed but remembered me from the day previously......(I don't think anyone tips on this island??? So maybe that was why :-)) and apologised that things weren't quite as 'functional' as normal.
I only ordered coffee and a ham and cheese croissant which came together after 15 minutes. I could see that all the staff were doing their best and seemed upset that they couldn't provide the standards they would normally.
Given the impeccable service and food the day previously- I think its only fair to write off Saturdays' mishap. I would've complained if the staff had acted like they didn't care but they clearly did.
I later found out the chef had been taken ill........a case of chronically bad-timing? Yes, but to condemn the place forever?? I'll definitely be back.
