“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Good price, and lovely to sit outside, except the seating is across the road from the café, and the steps down are a bit steep when carrying a tray of drinks!

“Found by accident & so pleased we did!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We found this café when walking along the front and are so pleased we stopped by. Great cappuccino, pot of tea (3 cups worth) and cream topped iced mocha later we decided to try the food - very nice bacon and cheese melt in freshly cooked French stick, and 2 yummy cooked breakfasts. Wait was no longer than we had been informed (and would expect from fresh cooked food) Clean bathrooms too!
Went back 4 days later and despite being during busy lunchtime food was still within reasonable time, staff polite, and food tasty and good quality. Sure you can get food cheaper but consistent good quality, nice surroundings, nice views etc all costs so if we are ever back that way I would be happy to go back.

“Food, location, staff, service .........all good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

After a long hot day we stopped for an early dinner here. My partner tucked into some huge 'slaw burger'!!!!! Which looked and he said was fantastic. I was more modest with a crab sandwich with lemon mayo (equally delicious) . On a beautiful late summer afternoon, no better place to be than watching the world pass by in the sunshine glistening on the sea. Menu extensive, efficient service and staff very friendly. Thankyou all.

“Great food and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We eat here occasionally during the summer months, fantastic location on the seafront overlooking the water, on this occasion we had the waffle topped with fresh fruit and honey, beautifully presented, and a simple jacket potato with prawns, the potato was substantial, topped with fresh, plump prawns and presented with a crisp salad and coleslaw.

This place is convenient to the beach, pier and the Den, has an extensive lunchtime menu, and a wide variety of pastries. The Beachcomber offers prompt and friendly service, though on busy days, you may have to queue for up to 10 minutes to place your order. We have been coming here for years, and plan to continue.

“Unexpected surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This café is so much more than it looks from outside. Comfortable and clean, but the best part was the food. Hot, fresh and plenty of it. And it has an amazing selection of cakes. I wish I live nearby. The staff were very good, friendly, polite and helpful. There is outdoor seating on the seafront. Overall we were very impressed.
