Best coffee in Skegness (Illy) with amazing sea views. Plenty of inside and outside tables. I would highly recommend a pit stop here!

I’ve been here a few times now and it never disappoints. Lovely cafe, amazing cakes and baguettes. Great sea views, I’d recommend going early to grab a good spot.

Stopped by for a casual lunch on Sunday after cycling up the coast. The View club sandwich was just perfect for us and the sunny beachside dining was very enjoyable. Would definitely stop by again.
