Sea view cafe situated on Tankerton Slopes overlooking sea serves excellent all day breakfast at a reasonable price. May not be served immediately but well worth the wait. Excellent home made cakes too. Dog friendly. Eat inside or out.

Hi I am afraid we only allow guide dogs inside the Cafe but there are 4 outdoor tables where dogs are welcome to sit with their owners.
