Popped in for coffee and chinwag with lovely L at The Michaelmas Goose Cafe. The waitresses here always seem happy to see customers and are so friendly, it's just an all round feel good experience.
There are two weeny seats outside in the sea air (and sunshine today) and plenty more inside. They support local food suppliers, brew Fairtrade coffee, use Riverford Organic milk and make all their cakes themselves. I can recommend the squidgy raspberry and apricot cake (served warm) and their divine chocolate brownie. Seriously dark, chocolatey and with no nuts (bonus).
And I went for a brief stroll along the seafront afterwards.
NB it's a sunny day and look how empty the beach is!
