Very friendly and welcoming cafe. All foods taste amazing especially the double cooked sea salted chips and bacon sandwich too. Dogs are allowed inside the cafe which is always nice. Prices were good too.

Four of us visited here today for lunch. It cost us £42 for two burgers and chips and two sandwiches and chips, a bottle of water and two hot chocolates and a coke. We then waited over 40 minutes for our food which was awful....More

Hi there Lizzie, I wasn't going to respond to your 'review' (or work of fiction, whichever you prefer) because the sheer pettiness & dishonesty of it doesn't deserve my time. But I'm bored, so I'll entertain you for one moment. Firstly, yes, that's how much...More

£3 for a flapjack is profiteering especially when the Cornish pastie cafe up the road in Tintagel sells them for 90p Good coffee and hot chocolate though but don’t like being ripped offMore

£3 for large slabs of homemade flapjack using Cornish butter totally pays for our numerous yachts & second homes scattered about the globe. Perhaps the pasty shop in Tintagel doesn't want those? Who knows. Or perhaps it doesn't pay for those things at all &...More

We stopped off at Trebarwith Strand on our way into Cornwall. We had carrot cake and lovely loose leaf Earl Grey tea. We sat outside at a table and watched the waves crashing onto the rocks. It was wonderful.More

A small but busy family run cafe right beside Trebarwith Strand. Bright and airy with plenty of outdoor seating we have a menu that goes from simple beans on toast for the small people to halloumi & couscous salad dressed with pomegranate molasses or our sickeningly healthy Allotment sandwich. All the cakes are baked from scratch in our kitchen and are decadently naughty. Good quality tea's, tasty coffee, chunky homemade scones and the best hot chocolate for miles. Dog, vaper and child friendly we should have something tempting for even the most fickle of eaters. Open all year round with special food-based events posted to our facebook page.
