“Great food, comfy couch and stunning views”
Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Food-We shared a large nachos for £7.50 and it was superb! Dripping in cheese and delicious chilli with three different dips this was a very tasty dish indeed, above expectations and we were full! Service was fast and friendly.
Facilities-1 toilet for all is a little tiresome and we had an awquard queue where we were in the way of people coming in but fair play, it's a small cafe.
View-Spectacular surroundings even on a cold winters day!
Parking-free til March is a great deal!
Comfortable-Get the couch if you can it was so relaxing after a load of walking! They also had access to some fab books about the area,waves and surfing so properly chilled out.

“Great value and brilliant setting”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Took our new puppy for a Sunday run along the beach at Gwithian and discovered this place near the main car park. Seating inside and out so we were OK to sit outside with our puppy and we ordered the breakfast rolls with sausage and bacon and a bowl of fries. Rolls were granary, sausage and bacon were cooked to perfection and the fries were very hot, even on a cold day sitting outside. All in all a real gem in a superb setting and great for a snack or lunch after an invigorating walk on the beach

“Just wish you were open later!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great fro a nice walk across the sand dunes, then have a huge breakfast, mug of tea and enjoy the views. I am not a surfer but can see that if you are then this place is a must - if you are not - still go they are so friendly and the menu caters for all. Just wish they opened past 5pm so we could have come down for a sunset drink. Dog was welcome inside too so very pleasant.

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Went with wife and two kids for lunch on 15/10/12. Food excellent all round, good portions, good quality, efficient and friendly service from waitress. Excellent value for money. No complaints whatsoever, even better in the summer when you can sit outside in the sun. Meal came to £25 for two adult meals, two kids meals and two J2O's

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We stumbled across this beach cafe whilst on holiday in St Ives, a cute and cosy little place with friendly, welcoming staff and good selection of food. We had cheesy chips and Beef Chilli and Nachos which were of generous portions and very tasty. Well worth the drive out. Will be back!
