“Coffee stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The first dry sunny sunday of 2014 and couldnt you tell!!!

Again as for most of my reviews this was just a coffee stop whilst out on the bike but i did take a look at the menu and the assortment of cakes and if time hadnt of been getting on we might of sampled

They had obviousely had a very busy lunch time as the propriortor i assume was washing cups as she went to help the girl at the counter who seemed alittle overwhelmed and id been told the washer upper had gone aS it was quiet earlier...i just dont think they could have forseen how busy they were gonna be,its a shame as i think some were put off by what was going to be a long wait for meals or drinks i was not the only one who wanted to dig in a give a hand with the washing up!!!

This said to ease the situation i was happy to have my coffee take away and sit outside and to be fair it was a nice cup of coffee reasonabley priced

I am sure that this was just a one off and the team were caught on the hop and it wont take alot to get back into the swing.

Should we pass through again i would happily stop off here again.

“Fabulous location and food just as perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stopped into Haven Café after being rained off a wander on the beach during half-term. The inside of the café is really bright with a lovely beachy feel.

The staff were really friendly and we were able to bring our well behaved dog along which was a bonus!

We had cream teas and cakes and all were of an excellent standard. We also saw BLT's and toasties coming out of the kitchen, all freshly made to order and all looked delicious.

Plenty of outside seating for when the weather is better!

Cant wait to come back. Highly recommended.

“Haven Cafe at Crackington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Haven Café in Crackington Haven, although small is a great little café right on the beach by the car park. They are dog friendly which meant after a walk this was a great place to rest up with a great cup of coffee and a snack. Clean and welcoming with friendly and helpful staff.

“Not your average beach cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The Haven Café is like a little gourmet eatery at the seaside - really chic décor, like a funky beach hut. Fantastic selection of lunch bites and cakes to indulge yourself, massive portions though so beware - you may have to share! (fortunately we spotted food being delivered to another table so adjusted our order accordingly!!) Excellent value for money.
What a lovely little find, especially on a blustery autumnal day!

“Fabulous crab sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

After a blustery wet walk on the cliff tops this was a welcome respite. Cornish pasty, crab sandwich and finally a cream tea. A real treat.
