We are a small beach cafe, during the day we serve a selection of freshly made baguettes, ciabattas and homemade cakes and by evening (from June until September) we serve authentic homemade Sri lankan curry whilst you sit on the beach watching the sunset. Curry is served from 5pm -7.30 every evening that the weather is dry.

This cafe is a hidden gem. The Sri Lankan curry is a must so don't visit Woolacombe without tasting it. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the beach setting makes for a perfect experience.

Fantastic beach and cafe. We enjoyed curry on the beach plus tea coffee and cake and pulled pork baguette on other days. Love the rock pools when the tide is out. Highly recommend just wish it had toilets.
