This is a good place to be if you are not too keen to stay for too long on the beach, they have hot drinks, snacks and live music.

Friendly efficient service. Have had very good toasted cheese sandwich with salad on the side. All fresh and good quality. Had nice cheeseburger in a brioche bun with lovely fresh tomatoes and lettuce, cucumber and sweetcorn on the side.
Nice cuppa too

We visited this cafe today and were once again impressed with it. It not only sells a delicious and generous latte, and either a mug or pot of tea, but also does all sorts of food from hot dogs to jacket potatoes, there are also toasted tea cakes. Plus they sell ice cream and iced lollipops. There was also live entertainment this afternoon as the weather permitted it. All round a great experience.

Not only is this cafe right next to the bandstand, but it has some lovely views over the seafront. There's plenty of seating, although there's no parasols for shade or rain cover.

They sell sandwiches, cakes, ice creams, drinks and other snacks. This isn't the sort of place to get fish 'n' chips, however. I've had their Victoria Sponge, which was nice, but didn't think much of the tea, despite putting 3 sugars in, instead of my usual 2.

Prices; let's just say some are pretty reasonable, while others are not so. You can't argue with £1 for a mug of tea or £2.25 for a slice of cake. But £4.60 for a bacon sandwich and £2.50 for toast with jam/marmelade (even if you do get 2 slices), is enough to make your eyes water.

By way of conclusion, I'd say I have mixed opinions about this cafe. There's some good things about it, and some not so good things.
