“An absolute must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely find. Fantastic home cooked food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. You don't have to be a park resident to dine here and we're so glad we paid a visit for an evening meal. Just to give an example of the foods... we shared lovely breads and olives to start, I ate sticky chicken with homemade coleslaw and wedges, the hubby had a lamb burger and fries. Followed by rhubarb crumble... Yum!! Definitely worth a visit.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

A hidden gem. Just brilliant fresh food from Scottie babs and the team. Bread and desserts made each day and the tastiest food cooked to order. I have eaten in some good restaurants in the uk and Europe and this place is in my top 3. I could eat here everyday. Ask for the rosemary and garlic bread lovely with olives.

“Ssssssssh! Don't tell everyone.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

How lucky are The Park to have The Cafe on their amazing campsite and how lucky are we, that we are only a 20 minute walk away!
Very easy going atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble. Freshly made assorted breads, try leaving without buying any!
Menu board is well thought out and homemade options for children instead of the normal no thought easy options!
I would definitely advise booking as not too many tables which is what makes this place special.

“Rustic, wholesome and fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Do'nt miss out on this Cornish GEM!!!! My husband and I have just had Sunday lunch here and it is truly a hidden treasure.Not well advertised in Mawgan Porth itself which is a pity really.It advertises as a cafe but is really a restaurant.Tables are set out in a country farmhouse style with colourful tablecloths covering solid wood tables.Colourful cushions adorn the solid wood chairs.I had butternut squash today stuffed with blue cheese and creme fraise.It was accompanied by a fresh green salad.All to die for!!!He had smoked chicken with little baked spuds and salsa verde-just yummy.They do fresh breads home made desserts,cookies and the like to eat in or takeaway.Cooking happens within view of the customers.Lovely outside area to relax with coffees.They sell wines,spirits and beer as well as the usual soft drinks.Child friendly also.Open til 8pm in the evenings.Honestly folks-this place will not let you down!!!!!
