About Us


When we embarked on our cafe journey in September 2016, we started researching and taste testing the products we wanted to sell, deciding it was vital we used only small producers and as often as we can, those from around the Essex area. We just knew our award winning artisan coffee and our delicious Italian gelato would be huge hits as soon as we tasted them.

We also visited various food and drinks fairs to acquire some healthy alternatives like our dairy free ice lollies, matcha latte, Kombucha living tea, organic Rocks drinks and great vegan sausages to name just a few. 

We feel that as a society we are looking into what we are eating more carefully and we wanted to provide some excellent alternative options for our customers.  We also wanted to cater for adults and children who have special food requirements, including those with gluten and dairy intolerances, plus the vegan community – making sure anyone can eat at Saltwater Beach Cafe!
