We enjoyed very tasty pasties - traditional and cheese and onion. Lovely pastry tasty contents! Sat outside and enjoyed the view towards Trebarwith Strand. The owner kindly brought out a drink of water for our dog. Very welcoming!

Faultless service by the server. We ordered the hallumi salad and a burger. Both were generous portions. Dog friendly place, great views.

Great welcome in this little gem of a cafe today. Staff very helpful and accommodating in a small but flexible indoor space, plenty of room outside if the weather is with you!

Visited here to watch the waves and enjoy a cup of tea and Cornish pasty. Young lad served us very politely. Was soon clear that despite it not being overly busy, he couldn't find any cups for us. He apologised and said he would be as quick as possible. When taking the issue to the older staff he was met... More

Who wants to go abroad when we have so many places like this on our doorstep! The Mill was excellent, a typical Cornish Hotel, we walked on the beach until the tide came in, finishing with a gorgeous crab sandwich at The Strand Cafe. The service was good even though they were extremely busy, lots of visitors and dogs, but... More

We each enjoyed a cup of coffee,which did not seem to be particularly expensive,and we were served by a pleasant enough chap, who was very polite and helpful. Yes--we will come back again.

A cute beach cafe on the glorious wild Cornish coast: sit and watch the surfers in the summerwith a cappuccino, or pick up a picnic for the beach. Serving crab sandwiches, lunches, home-made burgers, soups, cakes, cream teas and lots of other delicious treats. Plenty vegetarian and gluten free options, almost everything on the menu is home made. Open every day throughout the school holidays and open tue-sun from April to September, then at weekends only through the winter.
