And after that what's better than a great big tasty sausage butty and a flat white! Sitting on the decking warming up in the sun our food and drink arrived promptly and accomplished its job.

Great beach cafe in a lovely location. (Especially if you’re snorkelling/spear fishing). I ordered a ham and cheese ciabatta and it was delicious. I also asked the girl on the till if I could get a tub of boiling water to heat my babies food...up which wasn’t a problem at all! I just wish I tried more, especially the ice creams as they looked amazing!More

Visited on Sunday afternoon after checking both trip advisor and google for opening times - dry weather. Arrived at 3.59 to literally have the shutter closed in my face. On asking whether I could have an ice cream the young girl went to ask another...member of staff only to come back and say ‘too late’. Behind us their were two other families who would have all loved an ice cream too. Either it’s staff who don’t actually care about business or someone can afford to turn money away. At the end of the day - that’s their call but at least update the opening hours to save wasted journeys - I understand if the weather is awful but a dry Sunday afternoon and loads of people about.More

Used to be one of the best places in Cornwall for ice creams. Has definitely gone downhill in terms of choice, quality and price.

A great refueling stop for hungry teens (& their Mum!) The menu covered all we needed, was quickly served and was ready swiftly. The ice creams are too be recommended.

It's a cafe on the beach at Swanpool, hence the name. Decent espresso, home made cookies We shared a very good chocolate brownie. One way system - order and pay at the first window, collect at 2nd window, then walk all the way back round...the tables to where your friends are sitting The beach itself is a small shingle beach with rocks to explore if you remembered your snorkelMore

Lovely ciabatta , although a little on the expensive side for a beach cafe. Very reasonable coffee though and good selection of quirky ice creams on offer!
