Fabulous lunch, freshly prepared fresh fish dishes. The staff are friendly and accommodating. If you are lucky enough to get a seat outside it is great for people watching and a fantastic suntrap!

The only cafe in Aldeburgh accessible with a wheelchair. Great coffee and staff couldn't have been more helpful even lifting the wheels of the chair over the doorsill.

A very, warm friendly, relaxing environment. Wonderfully caring attentive staff. A great selection of food, and have not experienced a more delicious plate of fish and chips ever, cooked to perfection time and time again... A thin light batter, soft melt-in-the-mouth cod, and chunky hand-cut chips. Their coffee is a real highlight and have enclosed a photo to illustrate, as... More

My husband and I went to the AM Cafe for breakfast, it was very nice. I had mushrooms and tomato on toast and the flavour was delicious, my husband had a full English and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would return again.

There ought to be a "not bad" category for little cafes like this. Busy, slightly chaotic and with an eclectic menu, if it doesn't manage to exactly put joy on a plate, it does provide satisfying and perfectly edible dishes with a difference. Was that pomegranate and grape in the fruit crumble ? Good coffee.

Cafe is attached to a small shop specialising in fresh fish and vegetables and these are the ingredients that appear on the menu. From staples such as fish pie or smoked haddock, creamy mashed potatoes with spinach to more exotic Pad Thai noodles with prawns there is something for all tastes. Everything is freshly prepared and tastes delicious. We, like... More
