Lovely food available - we had bacon/sausage baps and cakes, just a few minutes walk from Gwithian beach car park. Little gem of a place, great spot for relaxing mid walk with a mug of tea whilst looking at beautiful scenery.

Surprising discovery following a walk on Gwythian beach. Circular room with some rustic outdoor seating in a quaint seaside garden setting. Delicious homemade cakes and mugs of tea and coffee at sensible prices. We'll definitely be back soon.

Good toasties and cup of tea. Also bought some beach ware and all great value. Good to see there are still some 'honest' places around.

The Jam Pot Cafe is a very traditional beach Cafe. It serves good traditional food throughout the day, such as bacon/sausage/egg rolls, toasted cheese/ham/onion/tomato sandwiches, cold rolls, traditional Cornish pasties and of course English Breakfasts in the morning. All of which (except for the full breakfast) is available to takeaway too, as well as hot drinks. We also serve a variety of cakes, our most common ones are chocolate, coffee and walnut, lemon drizzle, flap jacks and rock buns. However these vary based on the mood of the staff member making them! All of which are of course home-made! We also serve great cream tea, which comes with 2 scones (made at the local bakers, Berryman's in Camborne, who also provide our pasties and pastry's) Roddas clotted cream, jam, and a pot of tea for one. The Jam Pot claims no fancy menu or exquisite delicacies, however what we do, we do well! Our prices are low, our staff are chatty and our portions large. Come and enjoy the view have a cuppa and a slice of cake (why not a cream tea!), and talk to the famous Jam Pot dogs.
