“Breakfast by the sea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We're local Thanetians, but have only quite recently discovered this lovely place and now we keep going back. The cafe is in a prime location right by the sea, with views over Westgate Bay and offers plenty of tables both outside in the sun or in the cafe in more inclement weather. The vegetarian breakfast is second to none. I can imagine that watching the sun go down on their late-opening evenings (Friday and Saturday) would be well worth a visit. There is plenty of free parking very close by.

“THE cafe. Good value. Westgate-Sur-Le-Mer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

When the sun drops, you could be in Cote D'Azur. Nice milky coffee, cheap breakfasts, and even a beer is a possibile beverage! Great value. Take it for face value. Lovely beach.

“A great place on a nice day for a cold beer.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Visited today and the cafe has recently got a licence to serve alcohol. I personally do not think you can get closer to the sea in Thanet with San Migel on tap, a really nice cafe, with great views across Westgate Bay. It is not a restaurant and they do not pretend to be. They are now open Friday and Saturday evenings also.

“Great Cafe with fabulous views and warm reception”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had a great meal at a very reasonable cost. Park free and stroll a few yards to the cafe. Sit outside and stretch out in the sun sheltered from the wind. Or inside, both areas with unobstructed views to the west. A great place to watch the setting sun in an evening with a beer.
This is a good quality traditional cafe with 5* views.
