Always worth checking if there is a seat, in this seaside Cafe. Generally packed with beachcombers, sand dune walker, children and Surfin Dudes. Shells is full of really tasty treats, soups, chowder and Gateaux..

Stopped here for brunch three mornings whilst staying in Strandhill and also for afternoon tea and cake. Wonderful views of the waves, lovely staff and great food. Orange cake and Eggs Benedict our faves. Good value too. We will return next time we're in Strandhill.

Bought smoothies of differing flavours, a piece of cake, some muffins and a lemon tart. They were all excellent. Liked the fact that is was healthy, natural and organic.
