Myself and 3 others had breakfast on Sunday . I have to say it was fantastic, great service and great ingredients cooked well. I would definitely recommend this to others and return should the opportunity arise. Thank you.

This is a beautiful little place looking over the beach. We started with a seafood platter - divine mussels, prawns, cockles and supersmooth smoked salmon. Kids had fabulous burgers with amazing skin on chips and the lightest tastiest onion rings (and i don't normally like them). We had a beautiful piece of smoked haddock with perfect poached eggs and bubble... More

We've been here several times now, for all meals, but most recently took some friends here for Sunday Brunch and it was truly excellent. Probably the best brunch we've had so far in Southend.

The food is amazing so flavoursome. We had the special smoked haddock poached egg and bubble and squeek. Delicious. Others had blackened cod and a chicken burger. All very satisfied. We will definitely go back. Staff very friendly too.

Visited last Sunday morning with party of 14! No problems and bubble and squeak was a good choice. As always staff were attentive and friendly going about their work. Also special music night on Thursday moved to Leigh Bistro. Great service from Holly, Clare and James.

Just enjoyed a lovely breakfast,fell in love with the bubble and squeak . Not the cheapest but the food was tasty so you only get what you pay for. Not the most luxurious but it's clean and tidy with pleasant staff.

Quite simply, I won't go anywhere else. Coastal Bite is relaxed and quaint, the staff are refreshingly conscientious and always happy, and the food (and the Frobishers orange juice) is sublime. They don't advertise to be the cheapest, and for good reason. The old adage "you get what you pay for" stands true. You will not regret trying out this... More
