After a long walk on the beach, this sea-side food-shack is just the place to grab an ice cream, or a coffee. For a real meal, however, travel to nearby Marazion.

I live in Falmouth so don't visit Praa Sands very often. We visited today as family came to stay and although the beach was beautiful, the cafe experience was terrible. The staff were so unfriendly and unwelcoming. We felt like a complete burden on them....More

We stayed in Parr Sands, a lovely place by the way, and frequented this place many, many times. The staff were lovely, the food excellent and reasonably priced. The views are delightful with the sea only yards away. A perfect place to sit and relax...More

Came the other day and was disappointed. The drinks are still good but the menu had changed. The Cornish pasty was really hard and dry and the chips greasy and over cooked. Food use to be amazing. Cream teas and fruit pancakes were so nice...More

Worth a visit. Great coffee. Food and alcoholic drinks available. Great location. Order at the counter and it's brought to your table inside or outside. Could do with an update though.

Wasn’t too impressed. Witnessed the staff being short and slightly rude a couple of times . Very over priced . However it serves a purpose

We had lunch here and it was fine. Pasty for £4.50. Staff friendly and menu of good size. Ice creams were huge. Nothing to really note expect that for lunch on a beach day it was fine. There was also a lot of beach toys,...More

We went for an early morning coffee and a tea cake. I have to say the tea cake is the biggest I've ever had. It's a lovely place to chill in the morning before all the crowds come out. It was nice to chill out...More

Really lovely setting, good selection of drinks and food not over priced just what you expect to pay at the beech. Good service,over all a thumbs up, just be careful it gets busy at peak time and queues form quickly.
