Good cafes can add enormously to the enjoyment of your holiday. We have a great selection in Newquay. Some are great for breakfast others for that famous Cornish cream tea. We have listed some of our favourites here.

Paulines Creamery

Newquay cafes

The home-made cakes and baguettes here are our favourite. We take them back for an afternoon tea at the apartment or on Killacourt. 

The cafe upstairs has pasties, toasties and jacket potatoes if you want to eat in. Just round the corner on Bank St.

If you have a special occasion whilst your here ask them to make you a cake. You wont be disappointed.

food and drink

Go out of the back gate and turn left, you won’t miss it.
Sprout is a vegetarian and vegan health food shop, coffee shop, and micro cafe. That is the short description the full one would take far too long! Suffice it to say it is one of the healthiest cafes in Newquay.

 Go in and see for yourself, there are usually lots of things going on. Recent events include how to make such things as vegan cheese, Kombucha, Christmas wreaths, Kefir, natural skincare creams and immune boosting syrups. Other activities included acoustic gigs, yoga class, poetry readings, foraging walk, and independent cinema. 

You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy this place but it may raise questions about all our eating habits. They do one hot dish every day that is well worth trying either at the communal table or the covered court yard (Take a look at that canopy) or as a take away.
This is definitely one of the healthier cafes in Newquay.
You have to try the bread and the cakes. Warning! you will find it difficult to go back to supermarket bread after trying their Bordelais Sourdough.

Andy`s Cafe

Newquay Cafes
cafes, Newquay

Andy’s Café is one of our favourites, its not fancy, but the food is good and plentiful. If you’re visiting the UK from abroad, you’re going to have to try a full English breakfast and Andy’s cafe is the place to try one. France has its wine, Italy has its pasta dishes, Berlin has curry-wurst, well we have the full English, it’s a bit heavier than the usual continental breakfast but it will set you up for the day, sausage, bacon, egg, baked beans, fried bread, maybe mushroom and tomato, black pudding, few slices of toast and a pint of tea. That’s our idea of a good start to the day. American style breakfasts are also available but we think that the full English is difficult to beat.

Ask about the Beach Box. Hot or cold options beach ready.

Mr Pringle highly recommends this establishment to our four-legged guests as a free sausage is usually on offer and he’s always made to feel welcome.

Newquay Rowing Club Cafe


At some point during your holiday you are going to end up at the harbour, everybody does.

Try to make your visit at breakfast time so that you can have an excuse to visit one of the best breakfast establishments in Newquay. Here you can feast on a traditional locally sourced Cornish breakfast or try something a little more modern. Its not obvious from the harbour even though the rowing club has welcome to all signs. Go hunt it down and you will not be disappointed. Its not just the food that is great that view over breakfast will stay with you a long time.

Gareth and Lou will make you very welcome whenever you go even if you miss breakfast. Try a cream tea or book for their famous Sunday roast dinner. Don’t forget to bring your dog along as well because there are some dog treats available to keep your best friend happy.

Short on time ? No problem grab your food to go everything can be done as a takeaway . (watch for hungry gulls if your eating in the harbour)

Opening times from Easter are Wednesday to Monday

8.30 AM to 4.00 PM

Cafe at Trenance Gardens
Newquay Cafes

Lakeside is one of our favourite cafes it’s where we stop of for a coffee and a cake before  walking down the Gannel to Crantock. As it overlooks the boating lake at Trenance gardens you can indulge in that great British pastime of feeding the ducks after your lunch or cakes as they sell bags of healthy food for them.

Dog friendly during the day with doggy treats available including their own home made dog ice-cream so that no member of the family is left out. This cafe has a great reputation and it is best to book at busy times. 

In the summer they have outside seating and an ice cream parlour in the winter log fires . If you have a special occasion let them know and they will decorate your table for you.

At night time this great cafe turns into an excellent restaurant. Look out for the special steak night  pie night  and fish and chips night if you like a bargain

Cargo Coffee

Newquay Cafes

Lots of cafes say they are “on the beach” when they mean they are very close to the beach. When Cargo Coffee say they are on the beach they mean it. Situated on Crantock beach just a short walk from the national trust car park. Great for organic coffee, home-made cakes, ice cream and sandwiches. Crantock beach is a great day out anyway but with Cargo Coffee on hand now you can stay all day without all the fuss of making a picnic

 Mr Pringle also insists we mention the dog treats as well.

Definitely one that you have to try out, don’t forget the camera, because it’s a great photo opportunity.

Sea Spray Fistral

Fistral Beach
Cafes, Fistral Beach

Run by Katie and Lee with lots of help from Bruce this is a great place to start your day. Try the Sea Spray breakfast whilst looking out over South Fistral and it’s difficult to see how life could get better. Serving great home-made, local produce throughout the day in fantastic surroundings. If you don’t want to tear yourself away from the beach they have a takeaway option from the hatch downstairs.

One of the little extras is that you can enjoy a bottle of Sea Change  wine with your meal and know that it is Eco-friendly and helps fund ocean conservation projects. Guilt free wine what could be better
