Excellent Cream Teas

We had ream teas which were delicious. Good quantity of cream and jam and very nice soft and crumbly scones. Excellent service, nice and clan and of course a lovely location. My son had a panini which he said was delicious - we didn't get a chance!

Having visited the Harbour Lights for many years and enjoyed one of their cream teas on each occasion, I was disappointed to find that their standard had dropped this year. It was a hot day on 10th July but their were no sun shades to be seen. I ordered our usual cream teas but the scones were really dry as... More

IF you are tired after strolling round Boscastle's shops, walks and harbour then take the trouble to drop in to the Harbour Lights for a coffee. The building is set half way down the harbour on the right and offers inside and outside seating. Toilets are clean and well appointed. The inside of this tea garden is light, bright and... More

Had a bite to eat here at lunchtime during a visit to Boscastle with the family and was not disappointed. Both the service and the food was great and the location tops it all off. Don't walk by this one!!

Visited in June for a coffee and snack when returning from the harbour. Although the café was very busy, we were offered a table outside immediately and our order taken. Drinks and snacks were excellent quality and served by very pleasant, courteous staff. Prices reasonable. One of the most memorable events/location of our holiday. Tahnks
