It has been a pizza place, an ice cream shop and has even just sat empty for an extended period of time. But now Number 303 Seaview Road at Henley Beach is occupied. And we like what we see (and taste)…
The perfectly placed building is on the corner of Seaview Road and North Street and it has finally been shown the love that it deserves. Boyfriend/Girlfriend team Rik Fisher and Alex Smith have come in and breathed life into the space, and Henley now has another great cafe option. Say hello to 303 By The Sea.
When you walk into this place which, by the way, is totally adorable, you get a great homely vibe. It feels like a proper local cafe. The kind you might find along a coastal beachside town, where everyone knows your name and your order. It just seems like that kind of place. And the staff certainly help cement that feeling, because along with Rik and Alex, the 8 other staff members are all local to the area. We particularly loved how bright, open and breezy it was. It really captured that beach feeling without all the kitch beach props normally associated with seaside locations.
Now this place takes its food and coffee very seriously. So much so that they serve it from 7.30am until 4pm everyday. Yes folks, that is seven days a week! Which is perfect for us because after tasting some of the dishes from the menu, we may just be there all day, everyday!
After experiencing the amazing food, vibe, and service at this place we have absolutely no doubt that we will become regulars – even if it is just to get our hands on those eggs benny… With the guys promising that there is more to come, we have our eye on this beachside babe.
