We stopped here for breakfast - I had a lovely eggs Benedict (swapping the ham for smoked salmon at a small extra charge) and my husband had a traditional fry-up accompanied with a mug of tea (for me) and coffee (for him). Nice alfresco seating, a relaxed atmosphere and tasty food - can't go wrong.

Best English breakfast in Newquay by far, and the added bonus of the very nice girl serving you is a morning winner( hottie )
