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

Returned to enjoy another cream tea and there seems to be a change of ownership, confirmed by staff. Previous owners retired, but seem to have left the Harbour Lights in safe hands. Scones fresh and well baked; jam full of flavour and cream also. Jam and cream served in separate little ceramic pots. Tea made with loose leaf tea and... More

On our holiday in Cornwall this week, we visited Boscastle, a gorgeous little harbour town on the north coast. We love a good cream tea, so paid the Harbour Lights cafe a visit.
