We took the day off and drove the hour down to get a sea breeze at Littlehampton, next to Worthing. As the East Beach Cafe had been mentioned in Delicious Magazine this month, it seemed a likely candidate for a small lunch. The magazine blurb made the place look a bit larger than it was, but no problem as we arrived early. An hour later, the cafe was buzzing - inside (with doors open to the breeze) and at a few outdoor tables right on the beach.
The menu is small, although there were three, nice-sounding asparagus specials. Many were having what looked like very good fish and chips. I had to make do with a smoked chicken salad and Mr. Z. had a delicious mushroom soup (he who does not eat much lunch). The bread was yummy. All the dishes seem lovingly and well prepared, and the service was cheerful and very professional.
The building is fairly new and of a strange design, inspired by a piece of driftwood. Around the side is a small extension selling drinks and ice cream. I ate a Mr. Whippy as we drove off towards Arundel.
