“I particularly like this café as it is very spacious and clean. I feel very relaxed when I visit and usually stop for a cooked breakfast as part of my wider activities.”

Ruby’s Kitchen - Felixstowe

Ruby’s is located at the top of Bent Hill and is close to the main high street in Felixstowe. With a lovely view of the sea from the garden area, Ruby’s makes for an idyllic spot for breakfast on a warmer morning. Well known for their full English breakfast, Ruby’s has been voted one of the top five cheap eats in the country.

The staff are very friendly, and the service is excellent. The menu offers homemade catering, and the staff are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements, “just ask us” they say. As well as all-day breakfast, you can grab yourself a light bite or a hot drink and a slice of homemade cake.

Ruby’s is a modern, independent café with a lot to offer in the way of dining out. A short walk down the hill and you are at the very heart of the Felixstowe seaside where you can take a stroll up to the seafront gardens for a sit-down and admire the coastal views.

“I don’t remember a day before Ruby’s café, I have lived in Felixstowe all my life and always thoroughly enjoy a trip to Ruby’s before a bit of shopping or a walk along the coast. The staff are always so welcoming, and the Breakfasts are amazing, not to mention huge!”

Suffolk Food Hall - Ipswich

The Suffolk Food Hall is very popular but hidden just out of the way, located under the Orwell bridge on the Shotley road. The food hall features a butcher, artisan bakers, and deli counters as well as a huge range of other food items and wine, however, we specifically bring you here to the café. The menu is a little pricier than some of our other cafes but a good hearty breakfast with a beautiful view couldn’t be overlooked.

The café is welcoming to visitors of all ages so seniors should feel right at home, and it has recently built an outdoor seating area with a canopy that you can sit out in all weathers and enjoy the view across the river Orwell. With a home and garden department too, this makes for a perfect place to spend a morning with your family.

The Food Hall provides spacious seating and a lift with wheelchair access too.

“I often visit with my grandma; she loves to sit and enjoy a cup of tea and watch the children play outside. We have had breakfast here a few times and we love it. – Sophie Home Instead.”

Ufford Park - Woodbridge

We couldn’t leave Ufford Park’s award-winning breakfast off our list. In the historical town of Woodbridge, Ufford park is located only a 7-minute drive to Sutton Hoo and only 4 minutes from the Foxburrow farm wildlife trust centre, making this a great place to fuel up ready for a great day out. If you or your family member enjoy a spot of golf, the driving range is open to non-members also.

Ufford Park offers a continental breakfast as well as a full English and boasts locally produced ingredients in comfortable surroundings and the great thing about this golf club/hotel is that you don’t have to be a member of the club to dine in.

Ufford park is widely regarded as one of the best places to eat in Woodbridge which makes us very happy to include it on our list.

Kesgrave Kitchens – Kesgrave, Ipswich

Moving away from the countryside slightly as we head into Kesgrave, a little hidden gem on the High Road as you head towards central Ipswich. Kesgrave Kitchens is a family-run, very warm and welcoming café with extremely friendly staff. Voted the best café in Ipswich by the Ipswich star readers, this café offers a small menu with big plates! Depending on what you fancy, you can choose from a large, cooked breakfast, to bagels and sweet pancakes with a cup of tea or freshly squeezed orange juice.

The café is small however you would certainly be welcomed as a wheelchair user and there is a large garden at the back with some outdoor seating. There are small games and puzzles available to play whilst you dine in if you fancied a little bit of family fun whilst you wait.

Open every day except Sunday until 3 pm, we think you’ll really love this small but very popular café.
