First of all this place has a great view of Towan beach. We sat outside on the terrace where there are 3 large, long tables. Inside there are a further 5 or 6 tables. The menu was really interesting, my wife chosing eggs benadict, and myself and my son grabbing a burger with rocket.

The burgers were not the usual fast food tripe, they were genuinely home made from minced beef, and great for it. The chips were crunchy and hot, and the portion sizes made for a full belly. In terms of price, standard fair in Newquay witha can of pop coming in at well over a pound!

The breakfasts are incredible, would recommend the 3 egg omelette with hash browns. Lunch is even better, one of the best burgers I have had anywhere period. I hear they might be starting steaks in the evenings soon which would be unmissable. Also in a great location, handy to Fistral beach for pre or post surf food.

This is a brill place for lunch or if you want a quick inexpensive snack. My partner had the cajun sandwich and I had the turkey doorstop sandwich. Both really good and very tasty. Really filling and not too expensive. Definately worth a visit, plus its near Fistral beach.

On the evenings they do Thai food, didn't try it but menu looks good.
