The most Southern cafe in England and a must visit. Try the homemade doughnuts with jam and cream, savor a cup of tea or coffee seeing the scenic Lizard Peninsula and relax. Travel to another time in this mid 20th century looking cafe and smell the coffee. Well priced, well serviced and with an amazing choice of sweet pastries to enjoy your hot drink with.
Downsides? Not being able to have breakfast there everyday. Once tried, you will miss it.

Claiming to be the southernmost Restaurant in England, the Polpeor Cafe offers lunch and dining facilities like back in the 50s.
Excellent fish dishes and family crew and "bring your own alcoholic beverages, we don't sell any" makes the Polpeor Cafe even more charming, - it has its own atmosphere and style.
A brilliant place to have dinner at sunset and the restroom, sorry, is up the street...

We were staying nearby and used the cafe as a pit stop during a walkabout on lizard point and the lighthouse.

We loved it so much we came back one evening for the sunset.

You cannot book, but head over from 6pm and its BYO so we stocked up on some tasty wine too.

Gorgeous fish dishes and tasty desserts. The cafe is nothing fancy to look at - its all about the location and the food is pretty decent too.

What a view - make sure you make a trip down there if in the area.

A hidden treasure. Very good food, worth the money, plus excellent views. Please note, the toilets are up next to the National Trust car park - rather than at the café, this is clearly stated at the café.

So disappointed when we went to this place the other day. Had heard good things about it and had driven a good 35 mins to get there. It was a sunny day so the views were breathtaking. To be fair the service was excellent by all the staff, friendly and competent. We just expected a bit more from the food. Went for a crab sandwich which was priced at the higher end at £8.50 but for a good crab sandwich more than happy to pay that. It wasn't exactly stuffed with crab and was served on cheap sliced bread. Why do that? It should be on freshly cut granary not cheap sliced brown. The fish pie was quite good and was well seasoned so no complaints there. The scampi was watery but plenty of it. Not proper chips more like thin fries which isn't a big deal but not what I would call chips. The worse thing, horrible sachets of vinegar and red sauce. Couldn't even eat the sauce so resorted to a sachet of mayo which wasn't much better. Why can't we have a bottle of Heinz tomato sauce? It's not cheap food, (lunch cost £50 for 3 of us, 3 mains & 2 desserts plus 5 soft drinks)so why serve cheap condiments and bread? Blackberry and apple pie was also disappointing. Thick stodgy pastry, not pleasant. I think the place is fantastic, the staff are fantastic but the food needs to be improved. I know it's summer so filling seats is not a problem at the moment but there is still plenty of times when repeat business is needed. Come on Polpeor up your food game.
We would go back but only for coffee & cake unfortunately
