Fish and Ships
Situated on the Landguard Peninsular, adjacent to the Port of Felixstowe, on the Orwell estuary, the View Point Cafe absolutely lives up to its name. Serving all day breakfasts, fabulous fish and chips, snacks, butties, meals and homemade soup of the day. We also offer delicious cakes, pastries, ice creams and beverages to eat in or take away. Our food is cooked to order in the open kitchen and locally sourced where possible. Try the Fisherman’s Breakfast or go full out with the Handballer’s Brunch (handballing being one of the most physical jobs at the port). Open from 9am every day of the year except Christmas Day, we have plenty of seating inside with amazing views over the water. In addition, there is a large terrace (pooches welcome) where you can see, hear and feel the massive ships passing.
There can’t be many locations worldwide where you can get such a close up view of the world’s largest vessels manoeuvring in and out of port, assisted by the small but mighty tug boats, before watching them be unloaded by the giant quayside cranes. The sight of the tiny yachts and foot ferry crossing the harbour in the wake of these monsters is awesome.
