Situated in The John Bradfield Viewing Area, right up against the fence of The Port of Felixstowe, the View Point Cafe serves all day breakfasts, fish and chips, snacks, homemade soup, butties, salads and quiche or homemade hot meals and puds (according to season), cakes, ice creams, and a full selection of teas and coffees. Whether you sit inside or out, the fantastic close up views of one of the world's busiest ports are a shipspotter's heaven.
Try our Fisherman's Breakfast or go full out with the Handballer's Brunch or takeaway a breakfast bap. We try to source locally, including veg from Fruit and Flowers in Felixstowe, bread from the Bread Basket in Walton, sausages and ham from the Sausage Shop in Trimley and free range eggs from Harts in Ipswich.
