Description: Woods Cafe is a beautiful cottage cafe in the middle of Cardinham Woods. Open all year round, we serve warming home-made stews and soups in the winter and doorstop sandwiches with an ever changing specials menu throughout the summer. The cream teas are fantastic and the cakes are always fresh. We try to use local produce and suppliers where possible.

Had a lovely coffee and cake here - cakes are excellent. Very dog friendly as well and in a lovely walking location. Superb midpoint break.

Great tea, coffee, hot chocolate. Splendid variety of mouthwatering cakes including gluten free carrot cake which is to die for. Delicious aromas emanating from the kitchen as we start our morning walks. A real log fire when it is cold, plenty of out door seating and the friendliest place in town. Don't miss out on this hidden gem.

This is such a wonderful cafe. The location nestled among pine trees is spectacular and the food did not disappoint. We sat outside with our dog and had a lovely lunch, butternut squash tagine and pulled pork baguette, both of which tasted like proper home cooking. If we lived in cornwall we would be there a lot!

This is a cracking little cafe situated in the heart of Cardinham Woods. Great cakes, good coffee and perfect location. Slightly off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Very popular

I regularly go biking at Cardinham but last weekend was the first time I used this cafe. Should have gone earlier. Me and my partner went for a walk to build up an appetite and we where not disappointed. The food on offer is cut above the usual cafe standard of over priced bacon and sausage sandwiches although you can... More

A great cafe in good location. What sets it apart is a truly stunning cream tea with amazing scones and first rate tea. Well worth a visit for this alone.

After using tripadvisor to locate a cream tea in cornwall it brought up The Woods Cafe in Bodmin..so we checked it out. Its a drive down a typical country lane in to the woods...which are beautiful, you then come to the parking area and tucked away to the right is the woods cafe. A traditional cottage.. with ample seating outside... More

Can't fault this place. Beautiful cream tea, perfect setting and a wonderful rustic play area which my son loved. Will be one of those places I always hold fond memories of.

This café is a great place to stop after a run/cycle/walk through the popular Cardinham wood trails. They do great home-cooked food and good coffee - the scones are excellent. On a cooler day, they tend to have a fire going inside and it's lovely and cosy. For the summer months, there are outside picnic benches.

What a super place! Wonderful peaceful location by a stream in the woods. Great food and service. We had savoury scones to die for, home made and warm. Good coffee too. Will be back!
