    The Custom Café Bexhill

    The Custom Café is a pastiche American diner, with repro advertisements and slogans referencing some ‘golden age’ between the 1940s and 60s. Oh! And of course, a customised Harley in the window.

    The menu includes the inevitable burgers, with some concessions to British tastes including a pretty good selection of sponge cakes – you won’t see these in many places Stateside. Hot dogs were on as a special.

    I chose a burger to go with the vibe, forgetting that less is often more. Unfortunately, the fillings and sauce reduced it to a bit of a mush by the time I’d finished, but it was decent enough. I was too full to have a desert and if I came back, it would probably be for a hot drink and piece of cake.  Service was fairly prompt and obliging.

    Prices seem a bit on the high side, but you’re paying for something a little bit different. There were certainly a good few punters in there on a weekday having a late lunch. I also see on the café’s Facebook account that they recycle their waste including food waste and coffee grounds, so respect for that.

    They have a regular bike night and other events.

    Is it worth a special journey – not in my book. But if you’re in the area or want a meet-up point you could do worse.
