    Ogri cafe aka Wessons cafe

    http://www.wessonscafe.com/
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
    skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
    body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
    a ride!"

    Oakdene Cafe

    Popular meeting place for bikers. Attracts sportsbikes, dirtbikes, tassel tractors, trikes, local IAM group and just about everybody else. Lots of nice roads to be found close by. Good fry-up (award winning apparently). They do nice fluffy white bread and a good "milky coffee".

    Shoreham Airport

    One of my favourites is the cafe at Shoreham Airport.
    Latitude, 50.835556 50° 50' 08.00" N. Longitude, -0.297222 000° 17' 50.00" W. Elevation, 7 feet 2 meters ...!!

    The food is pretty good, the building is interesting Deco and when the weather is fine you can sit out on the terrace and watch planes and helicopters come and go.

    Second favourite is the Aero club at Goodwood racetrack near Chichester.
    Latitude: 50° 56' 30" N Longitude: 0° 50' 30" W
    http://www.goodwood.co.uk/food/aero_club_cafe.htm

    Again overlooking the airfield but has the added bonus of being right next to the racetrack which means there are always loads of intersting cars around.

    If you go to this one make sure you go via the Goodwood horse racing track. This is up on the South Downs and the road leading up and past it is fantastic and the scenery at the top spectacular. Watch it though becuase both the road and the scenerey demand your attention and you can't do both!!

    to follow on from the last post, having the pleasure of doing a bit of flying once in a while, you can generally find a cafe of some description at all airfields, so if you ever fancy a brew or bacon sarnie, then go on in and have a look. shoreham/goodwood are nice, as is lydd, rochester is ok, headcorn. others i have yet to try, redhill, panshanger, stapleford, andrewsfield, booker and many more to do.
