Still,think this is best breakfast for miles. We went for Sunday lunch but had big breakfasts instead. Breakfasts always great and huge thick pieces of bread or toast to accompany meal. Outside seating also available. If you like breakfasts this is a MUST visit.

Is THE place to get a massive breakfast in Lowestoft. The bread and butter is a door stop and the sausage is good quality. It can get very busy and the tables can get a bit sticky. A lot of workers go there for breakfast...More

I have been an absolute fan of the Lighthouse since 2013, no complaints until now. On Sunday 23rd April 2017 I ordered Cheeseburger, chips and beans. Unfortunately the burger-meat was so over cooked and hard just like it was one that had been cooked earlier...More
