A local friend recommended Beach Bistro to us and we are glad she did. It is excellent. We even got up early to fit in a breakfast there before our flight. Poached eggs and bacon plus black pudding if you dare! Lovely.

Beautiful beach front café with awesome coffee and delicious food. Everything I have tried has been super yummy (Anita's pies are to die for) and the staff are very friendly. Great place to take the dogs and enjoy the atmosphere.

When you visit Beach, you know you will get to feel special as a customer. The food is great, the service even better, and the sea view makes a coffee and a meal at Beach very worthwhile. I have become a regular there :)
