Sweeping, crystal shores, hugging the coast, Slapton sands epitomizes the outstanding beauty that South Devon has to offer. The beach is perfect for all visitors, from families looking for a leisurely day playing in the water to Dog walkers looking to wear out their pups (and themselves!). Spot the water sports enthusiasts; Kayaking, Kitesurfing, and Sailing in the distance. A place to escape and take in nature at its finest.
Nestled half way along the beach is Strete Gate, a mini hive of activity! Here sits the Lime Coffee Co. wagon - Serving freshly ground coffee, cold drinks, delicious pastries,and a range of great cakes. Keeping it local we love quality and service with a smile, even when it rains! Our aim is to feed the hungry, refresh the thirsty and keep the beach lovely - using biodegradable products where possible, we want to leave a mark in people's memories not on the beach.
Why the Lime? Not just a juicy, vibrant fruit that we pop in our gin! This is a homage to the areas past, South Devon is known for its abundance of limestone. Lime kilns once dotted the esturies and coastal areas in order to produce a powdered lime to transport around the country.
Catering for everyone, we have a large selection of snacks to suit everyone's taste.
Try one of our award winning pasties from local companyChunk od Devon. Using only the best, fresh, seasonal ingredients these pasties will hit the spot after a long walk.
We wouldnt be a beach cafe without ice-cream! Grab a tub of creamy Salcombe dairy ice-cream, made just around the corner. with over 40 awards to their name, there is no better!
Let them eat cake! A staple in our diets, another local company creates these delight. The Exploding Bakery in Exeter make their cakes with ingredients you would use at home- no added junk. We can't resist!
For the love of Coffee! A subject we take a little too seriously, this is a passion we love to share. What better place to sit with a creamy latte or light and fluffy cappuccino. Our coffee is specially blended locally by the Italian Food Heroes in Totnes, focusing on the delicate, fruity, gentle and even chocolatey flavours of the Arabica bean. Care is taken to steam the milk to perfection and you may even spot a bit of latte art before we pop on the lid!
If the weather is just a little to hot for an afternoon coffee or we can't persuade you to try just one cup then we have a selection of other drinks to quench the thirst; from hot chocolate and a variety of teas to a classic fizzy pop or an orange juice. If you are feeling particularly healthy you may want to grab one of our lime specials - refreshing and good for you with a base of greens! #subLIME
