A handy little shack for dog walkers as it is conveniently on the promenade and is very dog-friendly. Food is average and, as seems to be the case with most outdoor facilities these days, you have to brave the fag-brigade if you want to enjoy the sea views.

This is a great place for a coffee and or snack and ice cream after a walk on the beach. They do freshly ground coffee, and you can sit looking out at the sea in winter or outside on one of their decks when the weathers good. Friendly service and good quality food and drink. Also, dog friendly (we don't have dogs but nice to see them when we go there)!

So, you done the walk from Herne Bay along the cliff top and through Reculver Country Park till you reached Reculver Towers then took the north sea wall path to Minnis Bay. With the six miles plus under your belt you reach the row of beach huts at Minnis and there, halfway alond their length lies the welcoming sight of the Windshack - a real oasis - and are you ever ready for a coffee and something tasty; and that's exactly what you'll get. Perhaps if there's a bunch of you you might fancy trying the bucket of ice cream with the appropriate amount of spoons. Sit outside if nice and take in the view - Minnis has to be one of the best beaches in Thanet, if not the Kent coast.
An ameniable and helpful staff will get you sorted and you will not want to move off quickly but when you do it will be replenished and happy!
