Stunning garden with excellent food to match. The loveliest tea shop I have ever frequented!!! The scones were beautifully fresh and warm - the staff extremely welcoming and the service was top class. Wish it was nearer!

If you have never been to Mawgan Porth before, then place it high on your "places to visit" list........it is absolutely stunning. The café is a two minute walk from the beach and if you like home made baking then you will not be disappointed (why visit Cornwall if you are not going to try the famous Cornish Pasty) Nice...

We had been on the beach for most of the afternoon and popped in to this cafe to order some coffees as possibly some food. My father ordered coffees whilst we popped to the shops. We had 20 mins before we had to leave. We returned after 15 mins and the coffees still hadn't turned up. The cafe was empty... More

Loved the decor here it is modern but with old furniture, very pretty and appealing. The restaurant is not too big and has a lovely nook at the entrance to sit and have coffee or drinks. There was 6 of us that ate a few times for dinner and all the food was perfectly cooked and delicious every time. I... More

We popped in to this cafe at Mawgan Porth while on holiday in August without booking. It was way after 7pm, they were pretty busy but after checking, they were very accommodating and were able to fit our family of four in. We had previously looked at their menu outside on the board before and it was mouthwatering. What an... More

Wasn't expecting to find such a lovely place here. Food really lovely. Very nice feel about the place. My advice would be to book during the holiday season as it does get very busy.

Food is made from fresh as ordered with unusual recipes all of which we tasted were excellent. Great relaxed atmosphere. Just a suggestion: please add some sort of light blinds to the doors and windows to avoid having to eat with the sun shinning on your eyes.
