“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Great for a Sunday morning breakfast, with amazing views! Small and quiet, so you can enjoy the views of the sea on the doorstep.

“Disappointing food for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

But extenuating circumstances because it was a night of really heavy seas and the kitchen had flooded so they probably didn't have as much prep time. Calamari were lovely but crab linguine lacked flavour. Son's fish potion was not generous. Also guys if I am paying your prices (£8 for a starter) I expect at least one member of your staff to know what Kir is and ideally to have some! Having said that it is a fab venue but next time I will just get the fish and chips from the cafe downstairs!

“Lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Lovely food, lovely views. Often you have to compromise between the two, definitely not in thus case.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This was perfect pit stop for a hot drink on a cold day in January...Overlooking Porthgwidden beach the large window gives a perfect view wherever you sit in the café..Friendly attentive staff,quality drinks at a competitive prices anywhere in town,plus that view!

“Gorgeous view and good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We were made very welcome here with our 3 month old son in September 2013. Excellent food, good service and a fabulous view! We ate here several times during our stay and we will return when we are back in St Ives. At high season, I would recommend booking a table in advance.
