Top Quality food beautifully presented. Staff excellent. I had hummus/beetroot/salad with a hint of chilli sauce in a sandwich (lovely bread!) friend had vegan sausage roll. Every mouthful delicious!

The quality of everything here is exceptional! Superb menu, everything is high quality, delicious flavours and quality ingredients. The pricing is always excellent value and the food consistently first class with every visit. Excellent coffee too. Lucky to have this place close by!

We could smell the amazing food before we could see this little gem. What an amazing choice of sandwiches, toasties, quiches & pastries they had. Between us all we had the bacon sandwich & the bacon & Brie sourdough toasty. Absolutely delicious. The coffee was...outstanding. We were waiting by the wall & they brought our order to us! By the time we had eaten ours the queue was down the path, clearly a very popular place!More

Just revisited Sea spray after taking on the under cliff walk through bracing winds. The year long Covid wait was worth it. Flap jacks disappoint.

It can be quite difficult as there is limited parking nearby. Suggest you drop them off then take car a block further along and walk back

Yes, every time I have been I've seen dogs in there! As someone has already said it is quite small so big dogs won't have a lot of room.
