“PERFECT LOCATION”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I have driven through Hest Bank on numerous occasions but it was only through a work colleague who lived nearby that I heard about this cafe. We were on our way to the Midland Hotel in Morecambe and thought we would give it a try. The number of cars outside illustrated its popularity. It was a very hot day and most people were sitting outside. The views out over the bay were breathtaking and I imagine it was mainly patronised by locals out for a walk. There were any number of well behaved dogs in attendance too! The drinks were more than passable and served in very pretty cups but I wasn't convinced it is somewhere I would have chosen to eat a snack meal. Maybe it is so popular that the owners don't need to update it at all but to a passer-by like myself, it would seem to have a great deal of potential to make it really impressive without losing any of its quirkiness.

“Pleasant coffee and snack stop on the shore of Morecambe Bay”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

At the end of Morecambe Bay, situated on the shore at Hest Bank, you find a quaint little cafe known as 'Shore Cafe'. Perfect description as that is just what it is! Cross the railway to the shore road and immediately on the right, by the railway you find coffee and snacks at reasonable prices. There is a small indoor area, and an outside seating area. In summer, it is a great place to sit and view the bay to the front, or the Lake District Hills to the north. It is also the starting place for some of the cross bay walks, or for those less energetic, you can walk the shore towards Bolton-le-Sands and Carnforth to the North, and Morecambe to the South. Opposite, is a grass foreshore leading down to the pebbly beach, a great place to play with the kids or walk the dog! However, one word of caution, beware walking on the beach as the tide can come in fast and the gullies can become quicksand. Cross the bay only with a qualified leader. However, well worth the effort of crossing the railway. Coffee, cake, ice-cream, and hot food available year round.
