A Review of Coast Cafe Worthing as part of our exciting new series ‘The #TaylorMadeTop 5 child-friendly places to eat & drink in Worthing.
Welcome back to our #TaylorMadeTop5 series in which we are setting out on a mission to seek the top 5 child-friendly places to eat and drink in our lovely town of Worthing.
The first stop on our tour was Baked Worthing which is now one of our favourite spots for coffee and cake.
We were in a nice relaxed mood on the day and decided to head out for breakfast, it was a bank holiday Monday and we just got back from our holiday so it was the perfect start to a nice day off.
Coast is situated just next to the East Beach Studios which is a cool little row of Artist’s Studios occupied by over 20 artists situated in former beach huts.
The cafe has a nice little seating area outside and directly opposite has an excellent terrace style area situated on decking sitting right on the beach.
Of course being a bank holiday it was raining when we visited so we jumped right inside and got a table underneath the large window that looks out to the terrace and the sea beyond.
Location, location, location.
To walk down to the Coast Cafe from either side of Beach Parade gives you a lovely relaxed feeling and at this time of year when it is not overly crowded, it has the laid back, pre-summer feeling of any buzzing seaside location prior to the holiday season commencing.
The location of Coast Cafe is obviously a massive selling point but the decor and vibe inside the venue is equally as charming. The cafe has a nice rustic beachside feel to it which I love and there is ample space inside for buggy maneuvering and parking.
Ordering is done at the bar which I think is actually a bonus as you don’t have to wait to be seated then wait for a waiter/waitress to take your order. We arrived when the cafe opened at 09:30 so there was no queue and our food arrived, freshly cooked within 10 minutes.
Wake Up and Smell The Coffee.
Coast cafe serve Illy coffee which is top notch and was made to perfection.
The menu for breakfast consists of Full Sussex Breakfast, Full Vege Breakfast, Scrambled Eggs on Toast, Chestnut Mushrooms on Toast plus good old Bacon Sandwiches and a Parisian option of Croissant and coffee; nice.
A bit predictable but Lorna and I both opted for the Full Sussex Breakfast which was gorgeous locally sourced sausages, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, homemade bubble and squeak and a side serving of toast with jam.
At £6.80 this was excellent value for money and the homemade bubble and squeak was a really nice addition. Also the portion size was just right; not the type of gut buster portion that leaves you feeling bloated and just the right amount to satisfy a keen hunger.
Now that is a gooooood breakfast!
The side serving of toast and jam was a nice touch and I ate this after the main plate had gone, a bit like a breakfast dessert (is that weird?!).
At the moment LT is not yet at the stage where we are ordering for her from the kid’s menu but she was quite happy to sit in her highchair munching through her berries and cereal.
The most important part of any review; is LT happy?
Bright & Breezy.
The cafe has a really nice bright and airy atmosphere, in addition to the front part of the cafe where we sat there is a small upstairs area with great views out to sea and the owners are currently renovating the side room of the cafe to make a larger seating area which will double up as a dance floor in the evening when the cafe transforms into a cool bar.
Due to the renovations, ‘the facilities’ as Lorna always refers to them, are a work in progress but having toilets inside the venue will be an improvement on the previous set up.
Seat with a view.
So, all in all we loved Coast Cafe Worthing.
The location is perfect and makes it an ideal stop off for a lazy breakfast, relaxing beachside lunch or even a swift pint on a Friday night.
In terms of child friendliness, we cannot fault Coast, there is bags of room, nice clean high chairs and smiley staff to boot.
One of the best things about it, second to the location is the value for money. Getting a full English breakfast and a decent coffee with change from a tenner just tops off the relaxed atmosphere and makes it yet another firm favourite in the Taylor household.
We give Coast Cafe an 8 out of 10 which in our books is a damn good rating!
Will it make it into our top 5?
Keep an eye on the blog and our Facebook page to stay up to date with this series and find out!
Do you have a recommendation for the next stop on our tour? Do you own a venue that you would like us to review? Please get in touch and drop a comment below we would love to hear from you.
Finally please note that we have not been bribed with fried breakfasts or cold hard cash to write this review; we did it for the love y’all.
Until next time……
Be excellent to each other.
