I hadn't been in the Beach Cafe for a couple of years and didn't know it has been taken over by a couple who've done a brilliant job in making the Beach Cafe one of the best in Whitstable - though strictly speaking it's on the border between Whitstable and Tankerton. The Beach Cafe is a five-minute-stroll from Whitstable Castle,... More

Get beyond the unprepossessing shop front and you find a really cosy, friendly cafe with genunely fresh food and snacks. Tables are generous, fruit juices made up freshly for you and good staples on the menu. I had an excellent fish finger sandwich. Great coffee too.

Had a wonderful breakfast here today. Freshly cooked with good quality ingredients, proper coffee. It was quite this morning but I can imagine it being really busy in the summer months. A nice find !! We will return.

We had a private NYE party at Over The Moon at The Beach Cafe & it was brilliant! Ben, who runs it, was amazing and very helpful with everything, even our mad decorating requests.
