We never tire of this cafe. Food is good, freshly prepared and good value. And he place is kept clean - not that easy being just off the sea front. We hope to be taking a big family party for breakfast at the weekend.

Good menu choice, always very clean, food is always freshly cooked, and presented nicely. Happy friendly staff, I recommend it especially if you have to fast before X ray or ultra sound, at Clacton hospital. Visited many times last Wednesday last visit.

A group of about 20 of us visit Clacton every year and on arrival, this is our first port of call for morning coffee or breakfast. There's indoor and outdoor seating, the food's good and the staff are very welcoming and cheerful.
