“What's all the fuss about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I can only conclude that most visitors who have commented on this cafe have not eaten breakfast in many other cafes in Clacton. My family and I had an English breakfast here this morning, the food wasn't anything special, the portions were relatively small, and the coffee was
OK. Not particularly good value. However, this establishment was clean, the service was good, reasonably quick, and attentive.

“Best cafe in Clacton!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

I am fortunate that I only work down the rd from pier avenue cafe, which means I can start my day off with a hearty breakfast from here. I have tried nearly every other cafe in Clacton over the years and I can without doubt comment that this is the best by far! Fresh food, clean, friendly staff all add up to the perfect cafe! Thank you guys

“A real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Popped in here for the first time yesterday with family and have to say this is a brilliant place to eat. Ladies had panninis and us guys had full English breakfast and it was one of the best I have had for a long time. Prices are very good, food is first class and service was excellent, do yourself a favour and try this place out, you won't regret it.

“Fantastic home cooked food. With excellent service. Nothing is too much trouble.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile


My mum and I have eaten in here several times now. We've never been disappointed with anything we have ordered.
The staff are wonderfully attentive. The atmosphere though quiet at times is always warm and welcoming.
The food choice offers something to suit all tastes.
Highly recommended!
