I was 2/3 the way through a 50 mile bike ride when I did a detour to Sizewell beach. Seeing the tearoom was a real blessing. Good food and lovely tea.

Called in for a traditional English breakfast and was not disappointed. Very tasty with a great traditional “pot of tea for two”. Very friendly service, clean and welcoming. Will be back for more!

We are currently closed for our winter break and will reopen on March 10th. A simple cafe by the beach. We look forward to seeing you soon again in the spring, Joe and Suzanne.
