Fabulous cream tea . Both jam and scones first class. Good pot of tea too! All in a delightful deck surrounded by flowers. This will be a place we will come back to.
We came upon this tea room whilst spending the day at the beach. Fantastic views with a great, friendly service. The homemade food was lovely, especially the best sticky toffee flapjack ever (of which, we ordered more and more.) Well worth the walk up!!
Coming back from a lovely walk to Stepper Point with 2 hungry children we fell upon the Rest a While tea garden and had delicious sandwiches, a lovely tea cake with lashings of Cornish butter and a pastry perfect vegetable quiche. The owners of this hidden gem should be very proud of their food and service. We will definitely be... More

Recommended to us, on our first visit the day was cool and cloudy but the welcome was warm and friendly. In typical quirky British eccentric style the tea garden is just that ....meals are served through a window into a small garden with large expansive views out to sea, up to the coastguard hut and across to Trebetherick and Polzeath....

Thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review and thank you for your kind comments. We have been described as 'quirky' before, which we quite like! Thanks for the special mention for the crab sandwiches and the cream teas..... Both are getting rave reviews! Please come and see us again (a few times is good) during your... More
The Rest a While is always on our itinerary when in Padstow and it was good to be there on a warm sunny day. The food and service remains excellent and I can honestly say I was served the biggest piece of cake ever - just as well we had a long walk either side of the visit to burn... More

Cycled from Padstow to this lovely tea garden. Well worth the effort of cycling up the hills. Food was great, ample portions. Very friendly owners. Lovely views. weather was good as well!
Thanks for the lovely review! Sounds like you needed to 'Rest A While' after your cycle ride. I’m glad that you enjoyed your visit to our tiny tea garden. Please call again during your next visit to Cornwall. More
Forget the centre of Padstow with all its crowds. It may be a bit of a hike but certainly well worth it. Good coffee, lovely cakes and certainly better priced than the restaurants in the town centre.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review after your hike to our garden. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the experience and that you thought that our menu was tasty and good value. Spread the word in Europe and please come and see us again next time you visit the UK. More
although quite a trek this little tea room and the beach below are a must do! it is simple and perfect..we were blessed with the weather but a soujourn for fresh cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones and tea were a welcome break. head there for lunch then saunter down to the beach. you'll not get better anywhere in padstow!!! oh...

Thanks for taking the time to write such a lovely review! 'Simple and perfect' sounds good to me. We always have a bowl of fresh water available for thirsty pooches and as Tregirls Beach and Hawkers Cove allow dogs, we like to think that we are dog friendly. Please tell as many people as possible about us and come back... More
We visited this cafe twice whilst walking from Trevone to Padstow. It is a wonderful place which has a quaint atmosphere and idyllic views over the Camel Estuary. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. The garden was very pretty. It is ideal on a sunny day, as there is no indoor seating, but we would... More
