We have decided, rather than wait for indoor service, we will bring forward the reopening of the Cafe, albeit on the terrace only.

We are sticking to our winter hours for a few weeks, until we can welcome you back inside to eat (May 17th). Ordering and paying will still be at the counter, your food will then be freshly cooked and served to you on the terrace. The toilets will be open, and masks must be worn when inside. We will be at the mercy of the coastal weather, and should there be a sharp change in conditions, I’m afraid we will not be able to accommodate you inside, so wrap up warm if appropriate.

N.B. We do not take bookings for the cafe, and it is now a cashless venue.

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. We serve 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.


Our summer menu is complimented with quiche of the day and salads, in winter we have a traditional, homemade hot dish and hot pud of the day on offer.


The View Point Cafe and Kiosk are on the Landguard Peninsula, at the southern most tip of Felixstowe and Suffolk.

Don’t know what to buy for someone special?
Our smart silver gift cards come with a greetings card and can be used at any Yeo Group venue, once or multiple times.
They can be purchased here (postage charge applies) or in person at The Alex or Café Bencotto.

Please note that whilst our venues remain closed we will only be sending gift cards out twice a week, by recorded post, so they may take slightly longer than usual to be delivered.
