Right on the beach

We always stop here for coffee, especially the gingerbread coffee. Great being on the beach, it's an ideal spot to watch the surfers,

Had fish and chips from their take away counter and was very disappointed. Although fish was a good size, the batter was very greasy and the chips were nothing special. Tomato ketchup it came with was not even Heinz - great location, poor product. Will,go elsewhere next time I am in Tynemouth.

I had my wedding here in July 2015 and it was absolutely amazing! The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was the best (especially the chilli). I would love to do it all again and would highly recommend this venue for a wedding. Perfect beach setting and twinkly lights inside and out giving it a lush romantic feel.

Superb little beach cafe with great atmosphere and ambience. We had hot chocolate each day after beach asking with the dogs, doesn't matter what the weather is doing you can sit in or out and the menu is extensive. Great place and was missed when we got back home

What an amazing venue, the staff were full of fun and very attentive! The food was amazing and the sangria was free. Only draw back was it was slightly pricey at £35 a head! Nice way to end the year!

Visited on an amazing sunny day which should have been perfect for fish and chips. On the positive side of things the location of this cafe is brilliant, right on the beach so you can just wander over and order without leaving. The customer service was great too. And the chips were quite nice. The real disappointment was the fish.... More

We had a late breakfast here of coffees, teas, sandwiches and fish and chips. The fish and chips were some of the best I have ever had!

We attended a wedding reception here recently and is was wonderful. Unfortunately the weather was poor and we were unable to go out onto the beach but indoors it was cosy, the atmosphere was great and the staff were very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to return. Lovely spot, can be enjoyed good or bad... More

We've visited a few times in the past few years and have always enjoyed the food especially the homemade chips and wonderful array of homemade muffins. Portions are massive so we usually share as one meal each would be too much for us!!
