We were in Cornwall for less than a week and came here three times! The food is fantastic - big, gutsy, freshly cooked and unpretentious, and with the best possible ingredients. Sitting outside at a picnic bench, looking out to sea, drinking good coffee and eating big wedges of french toast with maple syrup and fresh fruit is total perfection. And then you can walk off all the calories in either direction along the coast! The only thing I didn't like was a slice of lemon cake - not my kind of icing.

A couple of things to note. First, it's not the same as the Sandsifter cafe you can see from the road - instead, take the National Trust turn to Godrevy Beach, which is before Sandsifter if you're coming from the east, or after it if you're coming from the west (we made that mistake on our first day, and Sandsifter's not as good). Second, the NT car park right by the cafe costs a flat fee of £4.50 for the day unless you're an NT member (and if it's full, they send you to another one, which is literally about 20 minutes' walk away!), so we parked by the Sandsifter instead (60p an hour and £1.10 for 2), and walked over - it's only a couple of minutes. Third, if you want brunch, it's served til 12, but if it's in peak times, leave yourself half an hour to park and queue. And finally, I think it closes at 5pm each day apart from Thursday nights, which is their theme night - we couldn't find the opening times before we arrived, so I hope that helps other people in the same position.

Generally we leave for Cornwall at 3am and get here for breakfast at 10am. So I'm sure you can imagine it has to be pretty good to seem worth the drive, and they never disappoint !
Great veggie choice, great for kids, fantastic service, literally a stones throw from the beach . I'd recommend the poached egg breakfast for the savoury types and pancakes with fruit for the sweet tooth . Great for post surf afternoon cream tea too . Can't be beat .

Over our week in Cornwall we have had breakfast, lunch and numerous drinks and cakes. Everything is made fresh to order so sometimes there is a big queue but it is worth it. Sandwiches made with real bread. You can eat in or they will pack up ready for the beach. BLT with fresh cooked bacon eaten on the beach was a real treat. Kids are really well catered for with kids sarnies and special kids breakfast.
