Since taking over in the spring of 2018, Sam & Claire Berry have completely refurbished the Café and intend to keep this gem as a family run business. The location is unrivalled, right on the area’s best surf beach with a separate roadside kiosk for quick stop offs for Beach Goods, Impulse Ice Lollies, Scooping Ice Creams made by Local Kentish producer from Deal ‘Solleys’… Yummy!
Joss Bay Café serves cold & hot drinks including excellent Barista Coffee along with Take Away Hot Food including 100% Beef burgers. Other options include Panini’s with some tasty fillings including a Vegetarian option, a Kids Menu option and breakfast sandwiches served in the mornings. Arrive at the side window for your soft Ice Cream & Impulse Ice Cream treats, then take a pew on the outside tables and benches. Inside the Café you can enjoy floor to ceiling windows with handmade wooden seating, plus the new handmade wooden and resin counter is spectacular and if you look very carefully you may see the ocean in the resin.
We are an eco-friendly establishment so only use take away packaging that is either paper, plant starch or compostable. In an attempt to reduce plastic in our oceans we do not stock any straws whatsoever! We would please also encourage everybody who does buy from our cold drink section to take your recyclables home and use your normal recycling bins!. Please also bring along your own bags for your own rubbish waste and use the council bins at the top of the steps on your way home… please remember we are a take away cafe. (Free Fresh Drinking Water available from the push button the shower at the bottom of the slope)
