Close to the beach and car park. Excellent food, good service and a very friendly atmosphere. We sat outside, overlooking the fantastic Gwithian beach with our dog by our side. Would not hesitate to return.

As busy as ever even with the poor weather. Service very slick for drinks and cake but cooked food taking a little longer. Love the surfing referenced pebbles used to 'number' your order!

Thanks for the kind review, just so you know we do cook all our food to order so it can take a bit longer than other places - apologies, but worth the wait. Hope to see you again soon.

Went in for a coffee and a few bits for the kids. The lady on the counter was extremely unpleasant. The girls that served the tables were nice though... not a place we want to come back, it was much nicer before, such a shame

We had to be back early on that day, so we planned everything carefully, took the train to the West Coast and made sure we’d have two hours to surf. The part of the plan that failed was that we had planned to rent boards...More

Stopped off after a chilly beach walk for hot drinks. Coffee and hot chocolate all excellent, food looked good too and we almost stayed for lunch. Dogs are welcomed.

Gwithian is our favourite beach and we always pop into Sunset Surf when visiting. The cafe is always spotless. The coffee always delicious and the scenery to die for come rain or shine
