Leigh on Sea has some of the best cafe's I've ever been to! Only takes an hour (40 mins on a faster train) from London to get there, and instantly feels like you're somewhere else, as its so quite and still compared to the hectic, fast paced city life of London. The breeze coming in from the sea and the large green spaces, its not the Essex you think it is (Ay TOWIE?) My two favourite cafe's are 'The Squeeze' and 'Stop the World'. They both do such tasty food, that always feels healthy at the same, especially The Squeeze who has a menu dedicated to just super food shots! I previously got delicious poached eggs on toast and mushrooms with my daily hit of caffeine!
Stop the World is possibly one of the cutest if not THE cutest cafe I've ever been to...The interior is so lovely I will defiantly need to take some pictures to show you. They have glorious cakes surrounded with more cakes with added bonus of...MORE CAKES, HEAVEN!
