We moved to the area 9 months ago. From our first visit on we were welcomed by Michelle, for coffee and cake. All very tasty and well presented. Have been here for breakfast, enjoyed. Recently we went for a Saturday night meal, we were very well served and nothing was too much trouble, and the food and wine were perfect.

I fully recommend the Kedgeree! A birthday treat, but I won't wait a year until the next visit. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it ! Cafe Dominic, is truly a Clacton treat.

I have been eating at Dominics for some years now, the staff are always welcoming. Its a very friendly place, and the food is always to die for. Recently tried their Nutella Cheesecake, sensory overload. Banoffee Pie the same. Hot Chocolate is always perfect. I always like to try something different but this is difficult as the meals I have... More

I had the poached haddock and poached eggs on toast for breakfast, something I had not ever had for a breakfast before, very nice, filling, it was £9 though so quite pricey. The waitress was really welcoming bubbly and lovely. Nice atmos, nice place to sit and eat

We have been going to Cafe Dominic for about 8 years and we have never been disappointed. Michelle is always very welcoming as are her girls all very charming and professional. Dominic is the chef, and his cooking is always first class, and it's the food we go for ! We have tried most of the dishes over the years... More

My Mother and I popped in for the first time a few weeks ago. Admittedly the hot chocolate and doorstep sized piece of cake was lovely, but when my Mother paid and didn't get too much change from a £20 note, I thought it FAR TOO EXPENSIVE!! It is a lovely little shop and wouldn't look out of place in... More

Always a lovely welcome by female member of staff. The gentleman/owner never welcomes anyone or breaks a smile but returned today as they do serve a nice hot chocolate. Will not return again. I met a friend with my new baby and after we finished our drinks we was asked to leave as he said he needed the table and... More

Excellent as always. Smoked haddock and poached eggs, full breakfast with extras x 2, poached egg on toast. Arrived hot and together, this is our 6th visit all to same standard. Coffee is spot on and fresh. Just a great experience to start the day.

We visited this little cafe while Christmas shopping. It was absolutely lovely. The staff were so friendly the food was defiantly not what I expected and would defiantly not be out of place in convent garden boutique cafes. The decorations were amazing and the atmosphere was friendly and homely with a dash of elegance. I would most certainly go again!
