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.

Coffee at Woods Cafe

Lovely café nestled in Cardinham woods which serves food from 10.30am till I think 4pm. On this visit we had a tea, hot chocolate and cake, all of which were very enjoyable. Having ordered in the café we sat outside with the dogs and waitresses brought out our order. This café being in the woods... read more

We use this lovely cafe regularly and the food and ambience is always excellent. A useful hint for the owners - staff taking food orders need to make more eye contact (we visited Sat 14th Mar) and pay attention to detail. We ordered 2 savoury scone meals to eat in and 2 mini lemon meringue pies to take away &... More

Such a hidden gem, I didn't realise there was a cafe here. Came down for a walk and saw this gorgeous cottage looking cafe. The Soup and sandwich was absolutely delicious. Couldn't fit in any cake so will have to return!! Lovely cafe and such a great location. Will go again, truly recommend it.

What a Gem, we have visited the area many times but never stumbled across the trails, walks and wonderful cafe. So glad we found it in a guide book. We have sandwiches and shared a cream tea. Tasty food, with good ingredients and a good selection of cakes. The dog seemed to approve too and he's had many a cream... More

A great place to stop after a walk around the woods, or just to find somewhere different. Playground outside with lots of outdoor seating too. Food is excellent and good value for money. Wonderful cottage feel when sitting inside. Very friendly too. Paying £2 to park when visiting is annoying though.

Walking the dogs is always a problem when visiting an area you do not know. We took some advice on an area called Cardinham Woods. After parking the car we saw the little area set aside as a cafe, wow, what a little gem that turned out to be, excellent staff and freshly made food to order, the coffee was... More

Stayed in Bodmin for a couple of days and decide to stop off in the cafe after a long bike ride. Really nice spot. Food was lovely we had homemade sausage role and ham sandwich (fresh thick bread!) finished with two amazing cream teas. The clotted cream was the best we'd tasted! Highly recommend visiting even if you aren't walking... More

Tucked away in Cardinham Woods, is this little gem of a cafe. I never miss an opportunity if I am in the Bodmin area, to pop in and have a cup of coffee and maybe a slice of cake. I haven't tried any of their main courses but I have watched them being served to hungry walkers and they look... More

We have been wanting to get to the Woods Cafe for some time, and a weekend away to Port Issac presented the perfect opportunity as we were driving passed the Forest Entry on our way there. The detour did not dissappoint. We arrived shortly after opening time, so the cafe was not that busy when we arrived, but it picked... More
