This is a real beachside café. Staff are friendly, food delicious and plenty of other people agree, judging on the amount of locals using it. It is not posh and it doesn't need to be. Lovely 😃

we were surprised at the crowds at this little beach cafe. Sitting in the sun drinking tea and eating cake we could soon see why it was so popular. Fantastic breakfasts and lunches were served and when you have been for a long walk along the coast this cafe certainly knows how to hit the spot!

I love this place. The food is excellent, whether you're after a bacon roll or a full English (veggie or normal). There is seating outside as well as indoors and it's right by the beach.

Have been here a few times for drinks/lunch/snacks/cakes/icecreams. Great little place to drop in when visiting the quieter beach at Sizewell (always crazy busy at Thirpeness and Aldeburgh). Very impressed with food/service/choice/price. Plenty of parking nearby.

Love a full English and hot tea/coffee after a bracing walk on the beach? Then this will not fail to please, lovely place with very tasty food.

Lovely and everything freshly cooked. Owner on site which is great business practice. Breakfast is great just a shame shut some weekdays! ☺

Sat down for a cuppa and discovered that this was a cafe with a difference. It wasn't your ordinary everyday beach cafe. We had to queue for a table, and then ordered our coffee & cake. Very well worth the wait. Sitting outside had the advantage of being able to have the dog with you. Water bowls provided. Top notch.

This is a welcoming cafe,ideally located to warm you up after a bracing swim. Bacon baps and cappuccino both top notch. Will be back!
