Had had breakfasts etc here for a very long time. Surfers used to come here for fuel. Came back after 14 years and it's still great. Son loved it. Fab wraps and great staff. Yummy smoothies.

Tried many different things off there menu including breakfast, burgers, and evening steak and was never disappointed.. I don't think it's over priced although more expensive than back home but all food in Newquay is expensive but you have to consider they do only have a few months of the year to trade. I found the staff more than helpful... More

Had high hopes due to the advertising here that says "Newquay's Number 1 Breakfast." It wasn't. I had the eggs benedict. From bottom up, the muffins under toasted, the ham so so, the poached egg was undercooked but the worst was the hollandaise sauce. It had no flavour and was the consistency of foam. My friend had breakfast 1. The... More

Had a mixed grill and a bacon burger. The burgers were home made and delicious. All freshly cooked. The mixed grill huge, my husband loved it. Lovely bright cafe. Well worth a visit. Went there after doing crab fishing on the harbour.

The menu was expensive which lead us to believe the food would be good. This wasn't the case, the food was cold and I had an eyelash on my plate. They also charge for tomato sauce. Not a pleasant experience.
