With a prime position on Trevaunance Cove, Breakers Cafe should be fantastic. Instead, food is average at best, menu very limited (in contrast to Genki up the road), not particularly cheap (given what it is) and standards of cleanliness really poor. If the owner isn't in, the young, staff struggle to cope with busy periods and the standards of the cafe slip alarmingly - not their fault, they appear highly inexperienced and really shouldn't be left alone to run a cafe like this. I hope this review will be seen as constructive as we live part of the year in St Agnes and really want this place to be good. The menu should be so much better - the kitchen is a fair size and seems reasonably well equipped - the days of people being happy with non fresh/pre-prepared stuff are over, but if you get this place right - clean, efficient and with an interesting/varied menu, you could actually charge a little more and certainly business would build dramatically. If it were mine, I'd also consider longer opening hours - at least in season - and possibly open for more of the year. Trevaunance Cove always has a decent numbers of surfers even in winter and cornish coastal path walkers. With consistent opening, a small place like this can build a year round business.
