Beachside cafe with amazing range of food.

Popular cafe down on the beach with a reasonably priced and comprehensive choice of hot and cold food and drink. My wife was especially impressed with the peppermint tea consisting of a form of "cafetiere" containing hot water and a quantity of loose peppermint leaves.

Great location and view, the food and drink are a bit expensive but are a bit better than you may expect. Some punters won't like the service or the prices, others won't notice. The views are spectacular though

We love this place and regularly visit this place so we had our wedding reception here and was absolutely over the moon with everything, the staff were so accommodating and helpful, the food was utterly amazing and all of our guests complimented the hot buffet, such a relaxed atmosphere and perfect setting! Would do it all again in a heartbeat.

One of our favourite cafes in Tynemouth. Called in for coffee and muffins today. I had sticky toffee muffin and lovely gentleman gave me a jug of warm sticky toffee sauce to pour. That was a free treat and turned a gorgeous muffin into a superb muffin. Staff are friendly and efficient and situation is superb.

Lively setting down on the beach. Service was very good. Friendly and quick. Breakfast was very good. Tasty bacon and well cooked black pudding. The scones looked good and will return to try. The coffee was good. Not too weak. Quite busy with a choice of inside and outside sitting. Give it a try.

Crusoes didn't even provide a cup of tea for the annual volunteered beach cleaners Who started from outside the cafe and cleared the beach of rubbish

A beautiful summer's day, one of the few! This restaurant is situated almost on the shore. All of the outside tables were taken but plenty of room inside. An good menu with a big children's section and a list of coffees that were new to me e.g. Egg nog latte, ginger latte. The waiters were very efficient, clearing tables quickly... More

Fast friendly staff - queues where huge but didn't last long People feeding seagulls where asking for trouble when they decided to share lunch - it was like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds - naughty of us to giggle but we think they'll not be doing that again! Fab fab, not bad price

On a beautiful sunny day sitting on the terrace of this beach side cafe looking across Longsands beach it is as good as being abroad! Even in inclement weather the views from the large windows inside are just as good. Good choice of hot and cold drinks, hot meals, panninis, snacks, ice cream and home made cakes... the muffins in...
