We were staying on the Seaview Site along the coastal walk into Whitstable, which was a good hours walk, we had looked the cafe up online and the reviews looked really good, and we were certainly ready for our breakfast after our walk . Don't be put off by all the scaffolding next door, it really is a lovely friendly... More

Get beyond the unprepossessing shop front and you find a really cosy, friendly cafe with genunely fresh food and snacks. Tables are generous, fruit juices made up freshly for you and good staples on the menu. I had an excellent fish finger sandwich. Great coffee too.

By day this is the Beach Cafe serving breakfast and cafe food of good quality. By night, reset the tables, change the lighting and it becomes "Over the Moon" a restaurent where the food is reasonably priced and of excellent quality. Ive eaten here three times, and each time have left stuffed and happy. The same guy-Ben- who cooks your... More

Had a wonderful breakfast here today. Freshly cooked with good quality ingredients, proper coffee. It was quite this morning but I can imagine it being really busy in the summer months. A nice find !! We will return.

The service was really friendly, food and coffee really good and at reasonable prices. Our dog was also made really welcome with some sausages. He can't wait to go back!

We had a private NYE party at Over The Moon at The Beach Cafe & it was brilliant! Ben, who runs it, was amazing and very helpful with everything, even our mad decorating requests. The food was incredible, Ben did canapés starters & a buffet (at our request) the tempura prawns delicious, the beef was a perfect medium to medium... More

Breakfast here never disappoints! It does get busy at weekends though so be prepared to wait for a table and then wait for the food- but it's worth the wait! Always hot, fresh and not at all greasy- love it there!!

Although we only wanted a light lunch, the service was great, the lady serving was very friendly. The food was hot, as was the plate, what a... More
