Description: Tubestation is a registered charity and community collaboration based in Polzeath which provides multiple and valuable services to the local community in and around Polzeath, right through the year. These include a multi-use community space with ethical cafe (reviewed here and elsewhere), art gallery, church, indoor skate ramp and many other activities. Tubestation's cafe (on which Trip Advisor reviews are based) creates simple and healthy well-sourced food and drink freshly made in an open kitchen; the purpose of which is to service and encourage an environment which brings all strands of community together (warning it can be noisy!) Uniquely the cafe welcomes people bringing their own food in, and supporting all the other businesses locally, and is often a place where people stop and stay for many hours. Tubestation is not for profit and puts everything it makes back into the community in some way, including 10% being donated as gifts to support good causes locally and globally.

When I arrived it looked a bit scuffy and tiered o nthe outisde but this didn't put me off. It was quite busy when I entered not with customers for the cafe but loads of cavvy teens hanging out with their mates. I do not mind this but when the food is so expensive I expected alot more. Foodwas good but service was poor due to the fact staff were chatting to the teens.

This place is uber cool. If you love music, surfing, skateboarding, great people and delicious coffee & food this is the place. Terrific views over the beach at Polzeth and only 10 yards from the sand it's the perfect place to chill after time on the beach.

Have been here many times in the last year. Great relaxed place to enjoy a coffee and warm up after spending time on the beach. My children love the half pipe and the free use if the skateboard which is actually inside the cafe. Gives busy parents a bit of downtime to enjoy their coffee. Nice selection of toys and books to amuse the children but please BRING BACK SCRABBLE. Played it each time we visited last summer.

The tube station has an amazing beach atmosphere with fantastic views of the beach. On a nice day you can sit outside in the sunshine and there is usually an Australian style barbecue which really adds to the holiday feel. When the weather isn't great you can sit inside where there is a lovely log fire, sofas and beanbags. We visit as we stay in the caravan and use the free Internet access which is handy to use to catch up with friends and family at home. The dog is allowed inside the cafe, which is great as we don't have to leave her alone in the caravan. The staff are very friendly and the food and drink are nice too.

the tubestation is an internet cafe that overlooks polzeath beach.
it is really a methodist church that gets used for worship on sundays, and as a village hall on other days .
they are open this time of the year tuesday to sat.
they do very nice sandwiches and soup and meals, what makes this place is the friendly people who work there.some people who had , had some soup and bread enquired what type of bread it was and the young man even went on the internet to find out for him, thats what i call service.
they make a great latte coffee there, and it was nice to sit and over look the beach and chat to the staff, this place is well worth a visit.
