Godrevy Cafe

Chilled out cafe in amongst the dunes at Godrevy Lighthouse National Trust car park. Bright and breezy with great views across the bay to St Ives from the deck and big plates of really fresh, imaginative food - try the Mediterranean mezze.

Situated on the headland at the end of the huge Hayle/Gwithian Beach. National Trust owned and offers excellent food. Seating is both indoors and outdoors and justifiably popular. Open during the day and also some evenings.

Great breakfasts and so close to the seals

Lovely breakfasts (full Cornish is massive, honestly it'll keep you going the entire day) and surprisingly good coffee which i didn't expect. Best of it is, it's just a few minutes walk from the seal colony which we visited three times during our stay locally to see their antics at different tide times (best to see them as the tide is going out as they come ashore to rest so there's lots of activity then).

Outstanding food, drink and view

Our favourite beach cafe in Cornwall. Great food, particularly in the evenings when you can sit upstairs with a view of the beach and watch the sunset (really family friendly - they always spoil our kids). For lunch the wraps are brilliant (Mexican and vegetarian are particularly good) - we get them takeaway and eat them on the beach when body boarding.

Lovely on a sunny day

Great place to stop if you're on a trek to refill your energy levels with local cakes and decent coffee.

Breakfast

Its become a 'tradition' for us now to have our final days breakfast at Godrevy Cafe. If you leave on a Saturday you are going to wait, but its worth it. Excellent, wholesome ingredients cooked perfectly and no skimping on portions either. There is so much more that the usual 'full english' - but this is sooooooo nice! Excellent location off the beaten track.

Yummy!

Also does excellent cream teas which you can justify eating if you've just returned from a long walk (but don't try going for a walk after eating one!). Can get very crowded and service can take a while, but the food is worth the wait.

Fab! The food is freshly cooked and very tasty. The large hot chocolate is especially good after a long coastal walk. The cakes are again home cooked and huge! The ice cream is a treat after a day on the beach. Well worth a visit.

Another mention for the breakfast!

It's been mentioned before but who cares. I can confirm that the breakfast IS simply divine. Don't look for a healthy option (have that at home), give yourself a real treat and go for the full English. I'm still dreaming of it :-)

Great location - call in here for a full English breakfast - it is to die for - get your day off to a fantastic start. Then walk it off either along the beautiful sandy beach or climb the cliff path to the top and watch the seals in the little secluded cove. A real treat.

The largest mug of hot chocolate ever! Lovely freshly cooked food and huge cake portions - a must stop if you are visiting Gwithian.
