Places to Eat in Southend
It’s Southend’s most popular cafe. Actually it’s the most popular cafe in Essex. Full of rustic seaside charm, but not cheap, nor nasty, it’s bright and cheerful with fab food and good service. Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong here. And plenty of happy people will agree with us.

Pipe of Port
Part trendy wine bar, part bistro and fancy beach cafe is how we’d define Ocean Beach. It’s right on the pebble beach of the Eastern Esplanade and boasts gorgeous views over the sea and estuary. There’s a huge glass terrace, with sliding roof. It’s perfect for family brunch, or a stop-off on your day out. We’re fans.
Middle Eastern flavours, Southend sparkle at Leigh-on-Sea’s most glam venue. As well as the restaurant, there’s a cocktail lounge, complete with ultra glam decor. We love Bring Your Own Bubbles on Wednesdays and Oysters and Champagne at lunchtimes. A huge hit with locals, you can even join the Gold Club. Towie us up!
