I stopped for refreshments with a friend today and was pleasantly surprised by the choice of food and drinks available, all at very competitive prices. Will surely plan a revisit as soon as possible

We are regular visitors to Sea Lane Cafe with its fabulous vistas across the ocean both from inside and out. The service is impeccable so don't be put off my the queue out the door. They are so efficient that everyone is served quickly. The most impressive selections of cakes and pastries I have seen anywhere in the area, all... More

We often visit sealane cafe and it's always fantastic. This time we arrived just a couple of minutes before they stopped serving breakfast (11:30) but the queue was at least 20 minutes long. No problem for them as they guaranteed a breakfast no matter how long we were queuing. Staff efficient and very tasty food. Highly recommended.

This place doesn't look much from the outside but serves delicious food quickly and at a reasonable price. We went midweek and it was still very busy, the queue to order moved quickly and our food arrived shortly after. Will definitely return.

Sea Lane Café is extremely popular; even on a cold windy day it was busy with many people bravely sitting outside (as inside was full). Inside we found a small queue, but with four serving positions the queue quickly went down. It is not hard to find this café as smell of bacon wafts down the beach and soon entices... More

Not enough inside seating but plenty outside with tables that can be moved about to suit larger groups. There were 12 of us and our order included various drinks and cakes. Service was efficient and the cakes were good and obviously fresh. Would be nice if the cafe could provide toilets as the public ones are not brilliant. New outside... More

Found this wonderful cafe on a walk along the beach. As it was a sunny Sunday morning it was very very busy - even though they were in the middle of a power cut so nothing hot being served. Chatting to people sitting on the next table we were told it was always this busy even during the week. The... More

Second visit to this lovely cafe. Good breakfasts, no particularly cheap but good portions. Cakes looked amazing!! Not waiter service, so you need to order at the till. Fab views and cosy environment. No toilets inside cafe, need to walk round to public toilets attached to building. Definitely worth a visit if having a walk on the beach and not... More

We spend a lot of time meeting up with our children and grandchildren on the beach and a visit to Sea Lane is always on the agenda! Be it breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea this place never fails us. Always buzzing at all times of day, but we always get seated and the food is served quickly, never failing in... More
