Really well situated overlooking the inner harbour and now not only roofed but with fully glazed protection all round, we enjoyed an excellent well cooked and served breakfast here and will try Dinner on our next trip to Padstow. Very pleasant staff

The best place for breakfast in Padstow- get there early to enjoy a table with a view. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon to die for. Highly recommended!

Went for breakfast to fuel up before hitting the Christmas market. Had the scrambled eggs on toast. Eggs were nice and creamy and the toast thick. Washed down with a delicious hot chocolate. They did well to accommodate in a table of 11 on a Saturday morning. Would highly recommend for breakfast

Decent little breakfast menu available each day, from jam and toast right through to the full works. Only downside is not being able to bool brealfast. There was 11 of us and we had to sit inside as opposed to being outside.
