I discovered this cafe/restaurant the other day after having a tuna mayo sandwich on lovely brown bread full of tasty bits (not cheap supermarket slices) whilst my daughter had a tuna mayo jacket potato, both with a small salad. We also sampled the lovely (non-greasy) hand cut chips.
I couldn't wait to go back, so today my husband and I had the 3 course meal for an amazing £7.35 each. Minestrone soup followed by home made chicken and vegetable pie with hand cut chips & peas, then jam roly poly with custard. I chose the apple fruit juice, roast chicken (very tender breast no bones) with roast & boiled pots, cauli, carrots and peas. Both meals were made to order with extremely fresh produce.
The service is faultless - when the waitress (Mugi) found out I preferred decaf tea, she immediately took the normal one away and brought me a fresh pot of decaf. I didn't ask when I ordered as most places just don't offer it.
Sadly, most people don't get to walk along the road where Cafe la Mer is situated, or prefer to have a sea view whilst eating, therefore staying on the seafront. Yes, the view outside is not the best, and Nick is trying to improve the property, but PLEASE - just go and try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. They need all the help they can get in these difficult economic times and I for one have become a regular customer even if just for a cuppa and cake.
