Our favourite eating place in any weather overlooking the sea! Inside when the weather is wild and watch the kite surfers....outside on the beach at a table when the weather is fine. Great food, very generous portions, good value for money, wide selection...never usually room...for cake afterwards! Friendly staff. Can take your dog.More

Stopped for lunch. Ordered 1 chicken and bacon salad & 1 fresh crab salad. Wow portions were huge. Absolutely amazing food, service & right on the beach. Can't praise them enough. Well worth the visit. If you're in the area pay them a visit coz...you won't be disappointedMore

We had been told about this cafe by my parents and after a lovely walk along the see front we found a table to sit at on the grass bank. It was early afternoon and virtually every table was taken which shows how popular this...cafe is. We ordered a sandwich each and bowl of chips. As mentioned it was busy, but the food was with us in good time. Good sandwich size and filling. Which looked the same for all the food that was being served. Will definitely return.More

Food very good as usual but was appalled to see people bringing their dogs in them jumping up the counter for the staff to feed them dog treats the staff having had their hands in contact with the dogs mouth used a bit of hand...gel then back to serving food and drink Surely this is not good hygiene practiceMore

Whenever we visit Worthing, this is our to-go place. Beautifully located at the seafront, this cafe offers delicious comfort food with stunning views of the beach. It gets quite busy at peak times, so be prepared for a bit of a wait, but it’s definitely...worth it! Their fish and chips is simply perfect, but they have plenty more on the menu. Everything is always fresh, huge portions as well, so good value for money. Ample parking available on site, but again, it fills up very quickly. Highly recommended!More

Never been before looked very popular didn't have to queue for ages, friendly staff, waiters then bring it to you with your number called out which I really liked the idea of that. Plenty of seating in and outside, lovely view of the sea, great...atmosphere. Didn't take long for our food to arrive. Looked very clean and tidy, Food was lovely and fresh, really enjoyed it here, Price for food was very good for what you get. Definitely recommend them. Thank you! Will be back. ❤️More

The location right on the beach is a winner for business certainly, and the higher prices can be charged because, well they can. A simple medium size cappuccino from the side kiosk set me back £3.20. Delivered from a machine and I offered to provide...my refillable cup rather than waste using a paper cup but this was declined with the filled paper cup coffee transferred into my plastic refill . Such a waste with the server saying “ I would rather fill it in our cup thanks”. I don’t feel that I am contagious but that’s how it made you feel and a waste for the environment. Coffee average, shame the price wasn’t average too.More

Great place to meet in-between Brighton and Bognor Regis. Well done Amy on her first day behind the counter. I was honoured to be her first customer and the service was perfect.

I can confirm as I visited today and looked specifically because of your question, that there IS a unisex disabled washroom facility.
