During the summer season I would recommend visiting the longboat cafe. Right by the sea, beautiful views and some of the best crab sandwiches I have tasted. Lots of outside space for you to sit out and enjoy the view with your furry friends (dog...More

We had a delicious cheese scone here right on the seafront overlooking the sparkling sea. The chairs were comfortable and we spent a relaxing time gazing at the smooth pebbles of the beach and the glistening water

Stopped for coffee on a beach walk. It's a nice little cafe, and might return for a meal sometime as the menu looked good.

Enjoyed an delicious crab sandwich sitting at a table overlooking the sea and bay in hot sunshine. Very helpful staff and quick service. Were warned to watch out for the seagulls but fortunately they were elsewhere today.

We ate here a couple of times during our holiday. Good quality sandwiches and paninis. The coffee is quite good too. They're a bit funny about smokers and vapers at their outside tables, even the ones well away from the cafe entrance.

The two cafes along this stretch are ultra busy. Both good, friendly, reasonable selection of food. Obligatory Crab sandwiches offered, ££££! It’s fine, dog friendly but you have to quick to get a table!

The views are very good but when we visited the coffee didn't have a lot of flavour and was the most expensive we had in Budleigh
