Just a stone's throw from Porthgwarra Beach, our coastal café is where you can find light lunches, Moomaid of Zennor ice cream, and homemade cakes - perfect for those seaside family picnics. And because we're oh-so proud of our roots, you'll also find traditional Cornish cream teas and the finest freshly baked pasties around.

The heart of the estate

With a beautiful garden and plenty of parking, our café is where you'll frequently find fellow guests and wildlife-loving locals. As a key point on the South West Coastal Path, it's perfectly placed for walkers to take a break and recharge. If you're hoping to take things at a slower pace, skip the walk and simply sit and watch the waves roll in.

We're even a favourite of Poldark star Aidan Turner, who visited regularly while filming nearby. Rick Stein also popped in for a cream tea while looking for choughs on the headland.

If you want to head out on an exploration of the coast, why not pop into the café and fill your rucksack with a picnic? From our tasty pasties and freshly filled sandwiches, to hot local coffee and refreshing milkshakes; we've got everything you need to keep you going on a day of discovery.


    With fresh produce from local farms and suppliers stretching from Penzance to St Just, our team make a selection of cakes and sandwiches from scratch every day.

    “This café is a hidden gem at the heart of Porthgwarra Cove. Sandwiches by the sea and a Shipwrecked milkshake. Delightful!”

    “A lovely break after a long lockdown, we had a wonderful time and the cottage was delightful. We wish we could stay longer!”

    “We’ve had a fantastic week, cottage lovely, everything we needed. The café is amazing! The team are so friendly, always smiling and so accommodating…”

    “Weather has been great and we walked miles. Always looked forward to returning each afternoon for some Moomaid ice cream.”
