Under the new owners, the Longboat café opens in winter between 1000 and 1600 on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On a sunny winter day, it is great to sit outside on the patio in the shelter from all winds except a south one...More

Mediocre crab sandwiches @£7.25 each with two largeish bits of shell. Had sandwiches from the Deli on the High St which were fresher and only a fiver. Overall, disappointed, suspect the café may have changed ownership as not what it was.

This seafront cafe was a nice surprise. We had a good crab sandwich with salad garnish here, as we watched the sea and people walking along the front. Staff were very upbeat and gave off good vibes.

Stopped here for some lunch because of the great location on the beach. Delighted by the crab sandwiches, served with a bit of salad and a few crisps, the crab was excellent, very tasty. Pleasant service too.

It is what it is, a beach side cafe. There is limited seating outside, and offers the usual cafe type simplistic meals.

Really friendly cafe, right on the beachfront. Being Budleigh Salterton, it's got a bit of class, too. Lovely brie & cranberry panini and Mrs H really liked the cheese scone platter. Nice coffee and hot chocolate. Cash only.

Selected a table outside and joined queue to watch busy family bustling around. Great coffee and hot chocolate with several other temptations available. Worth a visit.
