Breakfast venues in and around Bexhill

What better way to start the day with your elderly relative or friend than to take them for breakfast at a café in Bexhill-on-Sea, Hastings or somewhere nearby?

From Battle to Bexhill, there are numerous places where you can take a senior to enjoy a healthy or hearty breakfast. Our professional carers at Home Instead Bexhill and Hastings have explored some of them with our clients. It’s a great way to spend time with them in a relaxed atmosphere. So we’ve compiled a short list of some of our favourites in the hope that you might visit them, too.

Sovereign Light Café 

Sovereign Light Cafe is an ideal spot if you want breakfast combined with a view of the English Channel and the now defunct Sovereign Light House (which can be clearly seen in good weather). The café has been immortalised in a song by the well-known group, Keane. It can be found on the promenade on the West Parade in Bexhill (which was revamped in 2012 and opened by the Count and Countess of Wessex).

The café offers a wide selection of freshly cooked meals, including all-day breakfasts. There’s seating both inside and outside in good weather. The Sovereign Light Café is open every day of the week, from 10:00am to 4:00pm. The café is dog-friendly and there’s easy parking nearby.

Bluebells Tearoom

If you or your elderly relative or friend live near Battle, it’s well worth trying the Bluebells Tearoom. We think this cosy, quirky little café is an ideal place for breakfast. It uses local suppliers and bakeries and sells Fair Trade tea, and award-winning coffee from Bean Smitten. The light breakfasts include scrambled egg on toast; sausage or bacon and egg muffin with cheese; beans on toast; and an all-day breakfast bap. There are also vegetarian and vegan options. 

The café is located on the High Street in Battle, near Battle Abbey. There is good seating available both inside and outside, with just a very small step at the entrance. There’s parking outside and a car park in Mount Street (which is within walking distance). The tearoom also has a takeaway menu.

Marks and Spencer café 

If you’re accompanying your senior on a shopping trip to the Ravenside Retail Park in Bexhill, why not pop into the café at Marks and Spencer for a quick breakfast? It offers the usual Marks and Spencer’s fare, including coffee and tea, but with the added benefit of having marvellous views over the English Channel, as the café is located upstairs.

Despite being upstairs, the café is easily accessible for those with disabilities – and, of course, there are plenty of car parking spaces available outside.  

The Picnic Basket

Somewhere we love to take our clients for breakfast isThe Picnic Basket in Bexhill. This can be found in Sackville Road, not far from the sea front. It gets a ‘thumbs up’ from us for its food – there’s plenty to eat and it’s great value. The café’s breakfasts include mini, midi and mighty versions of a full English breakfast, as well as a veggie option.

The Picnic Basket is a traditional restaurant/café with good seating and is easily accessible. It has achieved a rating of 4.6 out of 5 on Facebook. The café is closed on Mondays, but open from 7:30am to 2:30 pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, and from 9:00am to 2:00pm on Sundays. There’s seating available outside, and the café also serves takeaways.

We hope you like the selection we’ve suggested – but there are plenty of others in the area around Bexhill, Hastings, Battle and Winchelsea you could try. Sometimes it’s good to do something different with your loved one – so why not take a break and take them out for breakfast?
