Had breakfast here with friends on Sunday Feb 10th. Have been before but had to write a review this time. Had the large breakfast, all cooked to perfection and looked brilliant served on a big oval plate, was absolutely stuffed but could've eaten more given the chance. Service was friendly and efficient, some of our party are a little fussy but the order was taken and delivered to the table with no fuss at all (as it should be, but not always the case in other restaurants/cafes I could mention).
Will be a regular thing for my family, especially on cold sunny winter mornings. The view is fantastic and a brisk walk on the adjacent West Mersea beach blows away the cobwebs. Highly recommended, please give them a visit.

We had Breakfast at the Seaview between Christmas and New Year as we went there to walk the dog on the beach.
What a setting right on the beach with some lovely views over the estuary (nuclear power station in the distance)
They have a row of outside tables which are used when the weather is sunny or as we had the dog we had to eat out side in a force 4 but nice and sunny .. Full English was just perfect local produce served with a smile what more can you ask ..
This place is well worth a visit .. The menu is full of good food at very reasonable prices
We will be back as our little puppy just love the beach

This is a real gem of a place. Since Mel and Jason have taken the place over it has improved tremendously. It stays open later, the food is top notch and always served with a smile. Right on the beach so, when it says Seaview, it's not lying! Great for us dog owners as we can sit outside, enjoy the food and the view alongside our canine companions. Try it .... you won't be disappointed!

I had a delicious Fish and Chips for breakfast. Thank you Jason and Melanie for very friendly service on a cold, wet and chilly morning in Mersea Island.

If you visit Mersea its probably because of the reputation of the great seafood along the beach. Yes it is great seafood however very expensive fish and chips around 12 pounds.

However we walked along to east Mersea and discovered a lovely cafe THE SEAVIEW CAFE. Don't miss it. Along with the lightly battered fish which was plentiful, the excellent chips, mushy peas and what tasted like home made tartare sauce is was exceptional. We sat with a lovely view in the sunshine enjoying this tasty dish. There is also parking right there. The new proprietors had a chat with us and she and her husband have a long history of catering and will make more improvements as they go along. We are temporarily staying here for 6 months and will go again and recommend it to anyone visiting Mersea. Its right at the entrance into the holiday camp by the beach huts. Good luck to the owners, you are doing a fantastic job.
