Always a favourite for morning coffee or afternoon tea when we are in Newquay. Haven't yet tried the themed evening meals ( Wednesday steaks, Thursday pies) but a pleasure to anticipate. Set back from the road behind a lake festooned with many kinds of water birds, a table at the large glass panoramic window lets you watch the world go... More

Been a regular for many years and I love the place! But I'd like to see something done with that old wooden pagoda, either paint it or replace it! All around it has recently been spruced up yet, the pagoda itself remains untouched; where a little grey paint would suffice? Also, the patio wooden floor could do with a bit... More

We visited to celebrate my fathers birthday. As soon as we booked the restaurant for 6 they asked if it was a celebration and then decorated the table accordingly. The meal itself was outstanding. It was steak night so we took advantage. The main courses were enormous, very tasty and extremely well priced. My children ate from the children's menu... More

Reserved a table with high chair overlooking the lake-ducks and swans provided free toddler entertainment as well as supplied crayons and sheet! Mediterranean/English style menu with decent wine list. We had a bacon/avocado bap (enough for 2), smoked salmon, prawn and avocado salad, from the children's menu a ham sandwich-size for 1 hungry adult which was rather ridiculous! A real... More

We came across this café whilst out for a walk. We expected a typical park café, but were very pleasantly surprised. The portions were generous, the food delicious and the staff very friendly.

This is more than a cafe. The menu is varied and the full English breakfast will keep you full all day. Just pop in for a coffee and a cake you won' t be disappointed

Fantastic cafe/restaurant overlooking the lake. Beautiful decor and lovely, friendly staff. The menu was impressive and the prices very reasonable. Good coffee and the best coffee and walnut cake I have ever had! The cakes are all homemade. Fresh flower arrangements on all tables was a lovely touch. A table was being decorated for someone's celebration lunch while we were... More
