We have a static caravan on Cakes and Ale and regularity visit this cafe. Having read some of the reviews about the prices I am shocked. The coffee is always fresh and reasonably priced, and comes with a complimentary biscuit. I work in London and you could not get the same quality coffee any cheaper. The staff are very friendly and there is always a very warm welcome. If you are walking on Sizewell beach this cafe is a must.

After a long walk along the beach from Thorpeness we found this cafe. As it was lunch time we had the fish & chips, which was lovely. Freshly cooked and delicious. We sat outside in the sunshine and were chatting with the locals and everyone was so friendly. A great little find on the beach. We look forward to returning here very soon.

How expensive! Costs more for a coffee in here than in London! 50p extra for soya milk. Costly exercise!

Thanks for the your review.

To be honest it’s the first time we’ve had to address a complaint about coffee prices. Our espresso machine coffees (cappuccino, latte etc) are £2.40 each. At present I think the smallest sizes in both Costa and Starbucks were £2.25.
We do not have the same buying power or volume of sales and we use a local independent coffee company who roast on site in Halesworth so I hope most people will forgive us for the extra 15p.
It may also be worth mentioning that our coffees come with a complimentary biscuit and are served in biodegradable cups when requested to takeaway.

Im afraid we have to charge extra for soya milk simply because it is more expensive and there is more waste. The alternative would be to remove the option completely, but I suspect this would displease people more!

We’re sorry you didn’t enjoy you’re experience but I hope we’ve explained our position.

Cheers,

Joe.

Fantastic cooked breakfast at the cafe this morning - despite being extremely busy the staff were happy and the food came without much delay - absolute gem of a place
