Arranged to meet the family here for a brunch. Absolutely lovely surroundings. The sun was beating down and the place was heaving. I opted for Scrambled Eggs on toast with a side of black pudding which was simply divine. Despite the massive queues to order...More

A quirky sea front cafe with a homely vibe. The chef was kind enough to make me poached eggs instead of the fried/scrambled offered on the menu. Toast was ah-amazing, friendly staff and this visit rounded off my trip to Worthing perfectly

I visit Sea Lane cafe everytime i visit Worthing. I love the cakes, the lunch choices the portions. The view. Its a busy place with loads of atmosphere anytime of the year. Be prepared to wait for a seat. But so well worth it.

Always a busy, happy atmosphere, for locals and visitors alike. Most welcome after walking our dogs on the beach. Lots of seating, both inside and out. They do the best bread pudding!

Very disappointed to find after my dog walk, no dogs allowed in the sea lane cafe. I would say the majority of walkers have their dogs with them. What a shame, had to go else where, where my dog was welcomed.

It is always busy especially in a sunny day in the winter/spring months so it is often hard to get a table. My friend and I had a delicious toasted sandwich and enjoyed looking at the sea in the lunch hour. There is a good...More

This should probably be answered by the cafe themselves.
Hi there. I have recently written an unflattering review of the coffee here to which the owner replied typically defensively, rather than sorry on this occasion we made a mistake. Intrigued, I read some of the other reviews and it is quite clear to me that they are not all completely genuine. Famwag includes this comment ''Big family group - no problem, we'll pack your order and bring it to you on the beach. Want less of this and more of that - we'll tell the kitchen. It must be an utterly brilliant business for the owners, and a great way in to employment for the ever-changing, young staff. With the beach on one side (including sand when the tide is out), a large free car park (pay after 2 hours) on the other, and streams of people on coastal walks they certainly need the 150 al fresco seats and the 80 inside for less attractive weather.'' So my question is - do you think Tripadvisor readers are complete idiots to believe that this is a genuine independent review ? What reviewer actually counts all the seats in a restaurant ? I intend to take this up with Tripadvisor, and would like to hear your explanation first.
