Never eaten here - the menu is quite eccentric with wraps sandwiches and pancakes - but the espresso is as good as it gets.

Went to Drift - in as walking the dog. Wow just like being in Cornwall. Always busy when i have been but great friendly staff and a fantastic menu. Granola with peanut butter and chocolate just scrummy. Well worth a visit

We had no idea what to expect of East Wittering but wanted to eat something warming before taking a winter walk on the beach. Arriving around 11:45 on a Sunday morning, we were lucky to immediately get a table for 4 in the front room as people continued to pile in afterwards searching for tables, banquettes and bar stools in the 3 rooms that loop around the Surf shop. It was brighter up front, but cold every time the door opened to the street. The overwhelming feeling is of friendly cheer, both in service and decor. I’m not sure what the thought behind the menu was, but although there are sweet and savory pancakes (English crepe style), sandwiches and Mexican, Spanish and Italian style Quesadillas, they don’t serve egg dishes or pastries for brunch. My husband enjoyed his All-Day Breakfast pancake with baked beans, cheese, etc. and the quesadillas were mostly eaten. The chips were very good, as was the coffee. I found my grilled chicken sandwich with cheese, horseradish and slaw somewhat underwhelming and a bit dry ( helped though by the slaw). I was still wishing I had been able to get eggs. The Drift-In definitely has the feeling of a community meeting place, where all ages and their dogs can come for a casual, if offbeat, drink or small meal.

If you're in West Wittering, I recommend doing the short walk to East Wittering especially for the coffee & food. They are so good at special dietary requirements, and the staff are so lovely and helpful. Interiors are nice.
