Eating along Guernsey’s Coastline – Beach Cafés & Kiosks

Nothing beats a good bite to eat after enjoying one of the wonderful activities Guernsey’s coastline has to offer. Scenic views combined with tasty treats is the winning formula for our popular beach kiosks and we’ve picked the best of the bunch.

Jerbourg Kiosk

Located at Jerbourg Point on the south coast, Jerbourg Kiosk offers delicious refreshments alongside stunning views. Overlooking the other Bailiwick Islands, on a clear day you may even be lucky enough to spot France in the distance.

A popular location for cliff walkers, there is an abundance of sea birds and wildlife in the area. We recommend tackling the walking route from Fermain Bay to Jerbourg Point and rewarding yourself with the speciality “Jerburger” - a cheese and bacon burger.

Saint's Bay Kiosk - OJ's

Recently taken over by two old friends, “OJ’s” is a tranquil spot that serves traditional homemade cakes, toasted sandwiches, tea and coffee. The kiosk overlooks Saint’s Bay, a sandy cove considered a hidden gem on the Island. Priding itself on being “worth the walk”, OJ's offers a warm welcome and peaceful location for a slice of cake and a cup of tea.

Moulin Huet Tea Rooms

Craving some fresh Guernsey seafood? Moulin Huet Tea Rooms are famous for their signature Guernsey crab sandwich. The tea rooms are located in an original 20th century cafe building, just a short climb up from Moulin Huet Bay. Outside picnic bench seating takes advantage of the gorgeous beach views once captured in Renoir’s famous paintings of Guernsey. 

Richmond Beach Kiosk

You'll find Richmond Beach Kiosk on the West Coast (right along from the popular Vazon Bay). Unlike some, this kiosk is open all year round and offers an extensive menu with something to please everyone! For an classic local experience, be sure to try the Guernsey specialty “bean jar” followed by a scoop of Guernsey ice cream produced from our world famous cows.

Portelet Kiosk

Overlooking Portelet harbour, Portelet kiosk is the perfect pitstop for coffee and cake while watching the fishing boats come by. This kiosk is another popular refreshment break for walkers who have visiting nearby Table Des Pions (the fairy ring made infamous in Guernsey folklore) and ramblers exploring Pezeries Fort, which can be reach from a pathway behind the beach.
