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.
The homemade 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.

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 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 Andys cafe is the place to try one. France has its wine, Italy has its pasta dishes, Berlin has currywurst, 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 hes always made to feel welcome.

For a Healthy breakfast why not walk across the Killacourt to Beet Box and pick up a coffee and a bowl of their delicious home-made granola with fresh fruit and berry compote to eat on the cliff tops overlooking the bay, there’ s not many better ways to start the day than enjoying great tasting, vegetarian food, with that view. Beet Box will rank high in any list of healthy cafes.
They are dog friendly, catering for man’s best friend with a selection of treats so Mr Pringle certainly approves, and its only a few seconds walk from your door.
Serving delicious vegetarian food, fresh drinks & great coffee on Newquay’s beautiful Killacourt. Yummy breakfasts, incredible lunches & tasty snacks with produce bought locally.

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

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, homemade 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
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 homemade, local produce throughout the day in fantastic surroundings. If you dont 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
