“Worth the walk”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We parked in the pay and display car park near the pier so had a nice walk to get to this beach bar - our dog certainly appreciated it. As indicated in numerous other reviews, the bacon rolls were excellent; plenty of good, crisp bacon served in beautifully fresh rolls. The service was friendly and prompt. Can thoroughly recommend.

“Lovely little find”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Was surprised to find the number 2 rated eatery in Southwold was a beach kiosk, then I thought about the lovely bacon sandwiches, cakes and drinks there over the years of visiting our in-laws in Southwold and realised I wasn't surprised after all! Also very handy that it us right next to the part of the beach you can take dogs on, perfect stop for a drink and bite after time on the beach with our mad spaniel.

“Yummy bacon rolls”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

After arriving in Southwold at dawn on a Sunday to take photos of the sunrise on the beach, we came across this brilliant little cafe located next to the vary last beach huts. The owner was just opening up at 9am, but was happy for us to sit on the chairs and take in the sea views whilst making friends with his little Jack Russell, while he cooked us bacon and made us coffee. I could have eaten about ten of the bacon rolls, they were delicious!! Very nice and a very welcome stop after an early start. Will definitely return when I next visit Southwold.

“Superb value for money”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Sat in the sun and had a superb coffee and bacon roll for only £3.The bacon was grilled,not fried and came in a fresh crispy roll. Only £3 for this AND the drink !!!! In London we pay more than this for just the coffee,great value for money and would highly recommend.
