Very small inside - c 9 seats plus 4 /5 outside, seems very popular, especially for take aways. Not the run of the mill eatery, and specials change daily. Worth a look.

Shoreham-by-Sea has a surprisingly large number of eateries covering many tastes and occasions. Many are aimed at lunchtime/cafe style food and very individually styled. Hector's Shed is a very small, quite cute cafe. We called in at lunchtime for a snack. Reasonable menu with ample choice including breakfasts. We simply had basic cheese on toast and coffee.

I love hectors shed! I regularly take friends who also love it!

It's a nice looking cafe but it feels a bit dirty. There seems to be a layer of grease and dust over the whole place and though it wasn't busy when we visited, the tables that had been vacated weren't cleared and cleaned. My coffee cup also looked like it hadn't been washed properly so I stopped drinking which was... More

Such a sweet little cafe. Lovely coffee and the walnut bread toasted and served with chunky marmalade is delicious. I just love the decor and furnishings and the retro cosy touches. My fave cafe in Shoreham.
