The Lympstone Manor owner will open Mickeys Beach Bar as well as Café Patisserie Glacerie with long-term colleague Sylvain Peltier in Exmouth’s Sideshore in March 2021.
Mickeys Beach Bar will serve food to eat in or take away and will have resident DJ at the weekends in what will be the most casual venue in the restaurateur’s group.
It will have a ground floor bar as well as a dining room with a retractable glass terrace and an outdoor terrace with seafront views.
“Mickeys has been in development for five years and I am so excited to see the building finally come to life. The interior space, designed with Design Command, is fun, vibrant and in tune with its surrounds and has the most remarkable views across the bay of Lyme,” says Caines.
Adjacent to Mickeys Beach Bar and Restaurant will be Caines’ and Peltier’s first Café Patisserie Glacerie franchise, which will serve French pastries, house-made gelato ice-cream, coffee and milk-shakes as well as grab and go hot pies and Cornish pasties, sandwiches and salads.
“I am proud and excited to be opening with Michael our first Café Patisserie Glacerie on the beautiful Exmouth seafront,” says Peltier.
“This has been a dream of ours for the past 15 years and seeing the project come together is mind blowing. Being able to share your passion with others is an invaluable gift and we cannot wait to soon share it with you all.”
The move marks a busy year for Caines, who opened his second restaurant in Cornwall in August having taken on a former Rick Stein restaurant and who took on Cornish beach front restaurant The Cove at Maenporth in January.
Mickeys Beach Bar joins The Harbourside Refuge in Porthleven, The Cove at Maenporth and luxury country house hotel and restaurant Lympstone Manor as part of the Michael Caines Collection.
