The Alex Café Bar & Brasserie

Offering panoramic sea views, The Alex has a fabulous seafront setting just across from the promenade in Felixstowe where you can watch the world go by whilst enjoying great food and drink!

The Café Bar on the ground floor, offers a full range of drinks plus a menu featuring breakfasts and the Café Favourites in a relaxed setting. Order a freshly ground coffee and a slice of cake, partake of a jug of cocktail or Adnams bitter and chill out on the large heated patio overlooking the sea.

The Alex Brasserie, on the first floor (lift access) is an informal venue offering seafood, grill and classic brasserie style fayre. The full menu is complemented by a set menu available noon till 6pm, Monday to Friday and a choice of traditional roasts on Sundays.
