There is nothing I can think of to say bad about this place at all other than the prices are a little steep but well worth the money for what you get on your plate. The food is excellent and it's served quickly and professionally. The staff are all very polite and act quickly to any query or request that... More

After attending a wedding in Louth the next day we decided to go to Mablethorpe and walk along the front get some sea air and blow off the cobwebs. On the way we came across The Matador Cafe, what a hidden treasure off the main street, the lady serving was superb, down to earth and helpful. Got our drinks and... More

We are a family run cafe specializing in great quality, value for money breakfast, lunch, drinks and snacks. We have lots of specials on our boards and the majority of our lunches are homemade on the premises including, chilli, curry and beef stew. We are most famous for our fabulous breakfasts which start at an amazing 99 pence! We also have a full kids menu available for just £2.25. Our opening times do vary slightly throughout the season but a good guide is 8.30am - 4pm we are open from the end of January right through to the middle of December.
