A great cafe for drinks, cake or light bites. Always buzzing atmosphere whilst still relaxing. Quick to serve customers, very organised, pleasant food at reasonable prices and clean. Great place for coffee after a walk whilst enjoying the sea view. Highly recommended.

Terrific little cafe, located right be the beach in Sandsend. Great menu - typical cafe fayre - with prompt, friendly service. Been several times and always love it. Inexpensive and always a nice experience - whatever the weather.

Great views, great food, good service! We were staying up the road at the Raithwaite Hotel and only wished that Sandsend Cafe served food in the evenings as it had a far nicer relaxed atmosphere.

On a freezing cold day with a biting North Sea wind in our faces, heading towards the Sandside is like walking towards a safe refuge. We received a warm welcome and and although the cafe was very busy we managed to fine seats in the...More
