Beach Kitchen turns 20

Pop in for the best beach burgers, dogs and boerries in town.

Run by long standing Cape St Francis resident Graham Tugwell, The Beach Kitchen is celebrating its 20th year of feeding hungry locals and holiday makers over season.

A qualified naval chef with 40 years experience in the kitchen, Graham makes a delicious range of burgers, boerrie rolls, hot dogs and salad rolls, and has coffee, and a range of cool drinks on offer too.

The food is simple, unpretentious and yummy. The portions are generous and reasonably priced, and customers are allowed to customise their choices by adding

onions, salad, cheese, bacon and suchlike, as they prefer. Everything is made to order, and nothing is too much trouble for Graham.

The food is exactly what I would fancy after a day spent surfing or lazying around on the beach. Delicious, comfort, holiday food – but by no means fast food, it is still healthy and wholesome.

One of the things I like best about The Beach Kitchen, is that it is 100% local, and all ingredients are locally sourced too. Graham has chosen to support vendors and suppliers in our community, instead of benefiting from the economies of scale by ordering out of town.

The Beach Kitchen is also environmentally conscious. No straws are on offer, and all tins are recycled, and plastic bottles collected and sent to Port Elizabeth to be made into eco bricks.

So, the next time you’re chilling on Cape St Francis beach, do yourself a favour and pop in to The Beach Kitchen, you’ll not be disappointed.
