A café in Felixstowe has spoken about the manic few weeks they have experienced with their roast dinner selling out every Sunday.

"It's crazy," said café owner Lewis Clarke when he reflected on the last five weeks.

"We need a 70-seater café, not a 30-seater - people just can't get in."

Crescent Café in Felixstowe has sold out of its two-for-£20 Sunday roast deal for five weeks running after the discounted lunch proved extremely popular.

"In the current climate, £20 for two roasts is a good deal," said Mr Clarke. 

"We are already nearly sold out for this weekend, and there are still three days to go.

"We had to turn away several people each week, who missed out - even after we served takeaway roasts too.

"It is definitely a deal that is here to stay."

Diners who manage to bag a seat at the café will be able to choose between topside beef, pork loin or turkey.

"We try to use local produce and suppliers from within the town," said Mr Clarke. 

"We are trying to serve quality food at an affordable price."

The café, which opened in March 2020, has been serving the Sunday lunch deal since the spring, but it has grown in popularity since the weather changed this autumn.

The business closed for a week earlier this year for a revamp to celebrate three years open.

Mr Clarke has plans to start two Sunday sittings to try to cater for 60 people every week, with people given timeslots within which to enjoy their meals.

Diners are encouraged to book in advance and specify their meat choice to help ensure that they don't miss out. 

There are also weekly dessert specials available to purchase at an extra cost of £5.50.

"Last week's sold out too - it was a sticky toffee apple crumble," said Mr Clarke. 

With a new menu launching this weekend, the popularity of the business will only continue to grow, and diners should contact the café to book their lunch in advance to avoid disappointment.
