“Great little seaside cafe and shop -a haven some miles beyond 'nowhere'.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A really nice little cafe run by a very nice New Zealand lady. Does the usual snack food, ice creams, pizza etc. Food was very nice and perfect for a family coming off the beach in the afternoon. Nice relaxed place in a less discovered part of Cornwall. Also sells postcards and stuff you might need on a beach, buckets and spades sold from a galvanized lamb feeder! Does a nice line in wetsuits as well, the lady who runs it took the time to bring and suggest suitable fitting suits for my two boys.
Service was good for both food and wetsuits (odd combination, granted). Views out to sea whilst eating pizza were just fabulous. Pizzas are pre-made bases but with fresh ingredients and cooked to order. Each pizza has a name and the 'Frankie' was rather good! Not as good as a stone baked job in a city restaurant, but do remember it's a little cafe some miles beyond the edge of the middle of nowhere. After a day on the beach across the road it hit the spot!
Price wise the food is reasonable, not 'cheap' but do consider they need to make money during the summer to keep the cafe going during the lean winter months, whereupon they still open but run pretty much on community spirit.
The wetsuits were actually very good and much better value than the stuff sold in the big chain stores which I thought was remarkable.
Cafe has WIFI which is free and accessible, a real boon when you can't even get a phone signal here let alone a 3G data connection.
Only visited once but came away hoping to visit again next year, overall a really nice family experience.
