The new Southsea Beach Cafe is proving to be a big success. This quality venue serves delicious breakfasts, brunches, evening meals, cakes, snacks and beverages all day, much of it sourced from local producers. It is one of seven new seafront venues created under the Lib Dems successful Seafront Strategy including Eastney 'Coffee Cup', Canoe Lake 'Greens Cafe', new Pyramids Cafe, 'Rock & Sole', 'Pavilion Cafe' and Southsea Castle (seasonal venue). Giving a flavour of this bistro the varied menu recently included 'Pop-up lobsters' on Valentines Day.
Breathing new life into two crumbling seafront buildings 'Southsea Beach Cafe' is a premium branded cafe/bistro with stunning views across The Solent. It's a big hit with residents and visitors who are heading to the seafront in increasing numbers all year round.
The Cafe has created new jobs and the rental income will help spending on other vital local services. 'Southsea Beach Cafe' is part of what people have been asking for along the seafront.
Local Lib Dems have already exceeded their promise to help create six new such venues in the Lib Dems Seafront Masterplan - more are set to follow and that means more jobs too.
