REVIEWS - Cafe's & Bistro's
PEGGY'S KITCHEN, Leigh on Sea
I can highly recommend evenings at Peggy Sue's - so many fab musicians producing such an eclectic range of songs and styles. And they have a poetry night too. This week we learned that they are now open for breakfast! Big and hearty with 2 sausages, rashers, hashbrowns, egg, tomato, beans, mushrooms and toast - incredible value. And my vegan was also very happy with his Linda McCartney sausages, tomato, beans, mushrooms, hashbrowns and toast. Good coffee and friendly service.
TEMPLE CAFE - Westcliff
Lovely outdoor seating area and lucky for us the sun was shining. Great menu with soups, salads and sandwiches. We both had a salad, my partner the salmon and myself the goats cheese with walnuts. Both were delicious and well presented. Service was good and friendly staff. Finished off with a slice of home made cake which was excellent.
BENTLEYS CAFE, Rayleigh
Always a busy cafe with a good service, the staff are very friendly, the portion sizes are generous and lovely selection of tasty foods and drinks. I chose a Veg Breakfast and my wife chose a Crab cocktail jacket Spud.
The food was lovely, so beautifully presented. Ive never seen such a beautiful salad.
The people here really take pride in what they do. Huge portions too.
TEMPLE CAFE, Westcliff
My wife and I had a vegan afternoon tea and I have to say it was lovely. The "ham" and vegan slaw sandwhich was my favourite and for my wife it has to be the freshly made scones, they were still warm and with soya cream and strawberries it was amazing. Lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes. Had a big pot of coffee and tea each.
The service was excellent so friendly.
SMILEY'S CAFE, Westcliff
One of the most reasonable and friendly restaurants on the Westcliff promenade, great breakfast. Great service, great food by the seaside what more could you want. Like this so much. Hardly changed in years. Good old fashioned proper fish and chips. Both had middle skate which was very white and fresh. Chips were real - and salad excellent.
Try the rest if you must but this ones the best.
