WHET MY APPETITE
Sharing the striking new purpose-built North Sea Observatory at Chapel Point with the National Coastguard and an art/exhibition space is café Seascape, which can also be hired for private functions. It opened in July 2018 and is already proving popular with locals and visitors alike, drawn by good food, friendly service, and the stunning location.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
This is the perfect spot for some breakfast or a bite to eat after a blustery walk on the shore has built up an appetite. Tuck in to freshly prepared sandwiches, jacket potatoes, soup, quiche, or burgers – all made fresh in the kitchen and using MSC-certified sustainable seafood. There’s a good ‘little people’s menu’, as well as vegan and gluten-free options, and of course hot and cold drinks, milkshakes and ice-cream. Keep any eye out for future plans, such as sunrise breakfasts, and summer tapas evenings.
HOW’S THE MOOD?
Informal and relaxed, there’s a mix of tables and chairs and some easy chairs in this wonderful space, made for gazing out at that mesmerising view as you enjoy a flavoursome snack or a warming beverage. There is a seating area outside on the terrace too, to get even closer to the elements. Seascape is also dog-friendly outside of lunchtime (no dogs permitted between 12-3pm).
CAN I SEE THE SEA?
Yes you can, in all its glory, from absolutely huge triangular windows that offer uninterrupted views. Outstanding at any time of the day.
WHAT’S THE DAMAGE?
Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous – sandwiches are priced from £4.75, home-made quiche from £5.50 and home-made burgers from £7.50. You can grab a piece of Lincolnshire plum loaf toast from as little as £2.50 – ideal if you just fancy a tasty morsel.
