Just had Sunday lunch here, a week before Xmas. Cornish pasty and hot chocolate. What more do you need! Lovely friendly cafe, good menu, fantastic views. Spotlessly clean. Have never eaten here before despite many,many visits, usually in the summer. Would definitely recommend.

Open and quite busy on a December weekday. Good value, tasty but not spectacular food - the view provides that. A great place to visit.

We came upon this Café after visiting the Lighthouse. It was VERY busy, and the staff were pushed to the limit. BUT it ran like clockwork, the food was good, the staff were friendly, and it was very reasonable.

We didn't expect to be having lunch when we arrived at The Lizard, however after stumbling on the cute little café, we opted to sit and eat. Glad we did, the views are breathtaking and food hearty and value for money. The staff are really on the ball with serving customers and ensuring they are attended to. Definitely worth a... More
