This cafe is a very nice surprise, on the front at blue anchor, basically a large caravan site, it has a great view down the coast to minehead, with a nice terrace outside for a sunny day. Inside it is very tastefully decorated in seaside blue, and the food was excellent as well. Breakfast was local sourced food, and lots... More

Really lovely cafe. Took dog, 18 week old baby and toddler and was made to feel v welcome. Friendly staff. Chose vegetarian breakfast which was great value for money. The cafe over looks the bay, has panoramic views and is really quaint. Will probably go back again during our 3 day stay in Watchet :)

Delighted that this cafe allowed dogs inside, we headed in out of the very chilly sea breeze. Two tables were already occupied which was to be expected on as cold day at the start of March. We chose sandwiches and a mug of tea each. The sandwiches were delicious as was the mixture of side salads that accompanied them. One... More

The Driftwood Cafe is a great place to stop off at the end of a walk along the beach, or even at the start of a walk. Great range of food and drinks from lite bites to main meals, the fish and chips are just superb and highly recommended. The cafe does get very busy at weekends and the peen... More

Nice little cafe on the seafront, so prices are a bit high. But good food and service. There are tables outside on the lawn and an ice cream kiosk at the front.
