Situated on Brighton beach between the Pier and Marina the Café at Yellowave has a mellow Californian surf vibe with a large sun decked area, chill out music and great food with lots of veggie, vegan and gluten free options. It sits within the unique ‘Yellowave’ beach sports venue which has six beach volleyball courts and a free sandy area for kids to play in with buckets and spades to dig with. 

This independently owned venue offers healthy home made salads, baguettes, jacket potatoes, home-made chilli along with delicious cakes and ice-cream. Bottled beer, wine, juices and smoothies are available along with excellent organic fair trade barista coffee and a range of teas. 

Pizza Oven is fired up year round from approx. 5-8pm weekdays and 12-6pm summer weekends or 12-4pm winter weekends.

The Café at Yellowave is still a bit of a locals’ secret but once you’ve found it you’ll want to come back. Wait and see, this place makes you feel like you’re on holiday.
