Welcome to The Alex Café Bar

The Café Bar occupies the ground floor and patio of The Alex and benefits from it's fantastic seafront location overlooking Felixstowe's south promenade. Our friendly, informal venue offers the full range of bar drinks, a large selection of wines by the glass or bottle, Adnams draught ales and a cheeky cocktail menu. Freshly ground coffees and cake complement the all day menu featuring delightful breakfasts, bar snacks and café favourites produced in the open kitchen by our busy brigade of chefs.

Open all day, seven days a week, the Café Bar makes the perfect place to catch up with friends after work for a couple of pints of "Southwold", meet up with family for a weekend brunch, share elevensies and a gossip, enjoy freshly beer battered fish and chips with your partner, treat yourself to lobster and a nicely chilled bottle of crisp white wine on the sunny patio or enjoy a warming hot chocolate and piece of cake, earned after a bracing walk along the prom. Please place your order at the bar and retire to your table whilst your food and drinks are freshly prepared and served to your table by our friendly staff.




We have some delicious new seasonal cocktails for you including the creamy and dreamy Gingerbread Martini or the sweet Candy Cane.  See the full cocktail menu 
NEW...Cocktail of the week...Each week we are offering one of our amazing cocktails from the menu for £5, all day, every day. The perfect opportunity to try something new.
