It is situated in Marine Crescent but is actually right on the seafront by the beach. It is an great place to stop off at if you are strolling along the seafront as we were. It is always very popular and in the warmer weather...More

I didn’t expect this cafe to be so busy on a cold rainy day right on the sea front. But when you see the quality of food and cakes, you know why. Coupled with excellent service by the team of youngsters serving, this is the...More

I visited the sea lane cafe on Sunday, arrived at 11:15 just in time for the end of the breakfast service. We were lucky to get a table inside, so could enjoy the views over the beach from the warmth of the cafe. The sea...More

I often pop in here for a coffee or lunch. Usually busy lunchtimes. So I try and avoid the queue times. Food is honest and a great selection of cakes.

This should probably be answered by the cafe themselves.
Hi there. I have recently written an unflattering review of the coffee here to which the owner replied typically defensively, rather than sorry on this occasion we made a mistake. Intrigued, I read some of the other reviews and it is quite clear to me that they are not all completely genuine. Famwag includes this comment ''Big family group - no problem, we'll pack your order and bring it to you on the beach. Want less of this and more of that - we'll tell the kitchen. It must be an utterly brilliant business for the owners, and a great way in to employment for the ever-changing, young staff. With the beach on one side (including sand when the tide is out), a large free car park (pay after 2 hours) on the other, and streams of people on coastal walks they certainly need the 150 al fresco seats and the 80 inside for less attractive weather.'' So my question is - do you think Tripadvisor readers are complete idiots to believe that this is a genuine independent review ? What reviewer actually counts all the seats in a restaurant ? I intend to take this up with Tripadvisor, and would like to hear your explanation first.
