Paul's is a very nice cafe bar located a stones throw away from Westgate-on-Sea station. On arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who was very friendly and welcoming. We took our menus and sat in the small outside seating area as it...More

Love the cafe feel. Reminded me of the quirky cafe culture in New Town, Sydney with great coffee and cake. The service was very good with the order being taken outside for us but the most bizarre 'attribute' to the coffee shop is that you...More

We had lunch here, it was very reasonably priced and was really good, fresh food. Staff were cooking under pressure with some electrical problems, but food was tasty and well cooked.

We had a delicious meal here after going to the Carlton cinema. The fishcakes were superb. Great skin-on chips too and very good service. Lovely relaxing atmosphere.

A little gem here. Situated beside the railway station this venue offers lovely freshly prepared food which can be served in the vine-covered garden or inside the Café-Bar. My favourite is the Mediterranean Platter for Two, with amazing and generous quantities of cheeses, meats and...More

The place looks unfinished, not too sure whether this is how it's supposed to be or not. Had a bacon and brie panini. This was quite nice but a little dry and served with a fresh tasting side salad. Probably will return in the future,...More
