“Outside seating area in the cafe is a must”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

I have made it tradition to have a pot of tea in this cafe if only to experience the fantistic view from the outside seating area. My only comment would be to make the cups bigger for coffee drinkers as I want to relax and take my time over a pot of tea but my husbands small cups of coffee dont last very long!!

“Mediocre”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We arrived late morning for a snack. The Exhibition in The Galleries warranted a break to gain maximum appreciation.The weather outside was gorgeous which might be the reason the staff clearly resented being at work. Our meal was ordinary and service poor. One felt that one was intruding on the staff's catch up on social time chat. On this occasion we did not feel that the service warranted a tip. Perhaps the captive audience syndrome?

“worth a visit in the sun or rain or if you wait five minutes maybe both”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

a great view from the cafe and interesting food choices makes this a place a lot of people run to if it is raining, but worth a trip to have a nice view over the beach with surfs always there to put on a show - whatever the weather

“If the weather's good, the roof café is worth visiting”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The Tate in Padstow is not necessarily where you would head to for great food. It's more a place to have a sit, watch the weather go by, and fill a gap with a sandwich or mezze platter.
As such, it's fine, and the service is friendly.
It's a small selection of a menu, much like the galleries, you expect a little more from such a grand building. It's that famous St. Ives mimialism again.
