As you’d expect there is a range of excellent cafes in both Bridport and West Bay. Just slightly beyond in Burton Bradstock is Hive Beach, a cafe by name but serving restaurant style food in a beautiful location.
Hive Beach Cafe, Burton Bradstock
With indoor/outdoor seating overlooking the beach and the sea, the atmosphere here is amazing. The seafood platters for lunch and dinner (summer only) are exceptional and the breakfasts are talked about all over Dorset! These guys take “locally sourced” to a whole new level. Dogs not only welcome, but adored!!
Rachel’s, West Bay
On “The Mound” by the Harbour Masters’ office, this unassuming ‘shed’ provides alfresco dining with some of the best seafood dishes around. All food is freshly prepared so arrive early and be prepared for a short wait in peak season.
Sally’s Fish Camp, Abbotsbury
Sally’s Fish Camp is an easy and exciting way to order and enjoy your favourite shellfish, delivered directly to your holiday cottage. Choices of shellfish delivered on ice in a stylish bucket, a handmade wooden crate or quite simply, in a picnic bag.
Enjoy a “lazy afternoon” or maybe watch a romantic sunset tucked away on the beach sharing the good things in life and seeing the sun dip below the horizon, with one of these fabulous fishy treats. Check out Sally’s Fish Camp website for further details and ordering information.
The Watch House, West Bay
Right on the beach, this cafe offers views across Lyme Bay and outstanding cuisine – a seasonal menu, locally sourced fish specials on the blackboards, wood fired pizzas and an ice cream parlour.
Cafe Bean, Bridport
Situated on South Street (next door to our office – great for a bacon butty treat on Saturday mornings), Matt provides a great selection of food, a snack if you are in a hurry, a nice hot lunch if you have a bit more time or even a delicious Dorset Cream Tea and cake for an afternoon treat.
Soulshine Cafe, Bridport
With an informal layout and a shabby chic decor this is a quirky and tasteful setting that is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or a relaxing lunch. The outside courtyard is full of flowers and greenery and is even more spectacular in the sunshine. The friendly and attentive staff add to the wonderful, buzzy atmosphere. Add free wi-fi and a dog friendly policy and you’re onto a winner!
AROMA is an independent cafe serving fabulous home-made food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere.
Hand made artisanal ice cream, using succulent fruit, local organic milk and lashings of dedication.
Good quality, home cooked produce, supplied with free range eggs, hand reared pork products and potatoes from their own farm. A fabulous place to visit for home cooked breakfasts, homemade cakes and scones and a variety of freshly made lunches.
