The food was lovely and the cream tea was everything you would expect from a proper Cornish cream tea. The staff are friendly an can't do enough for you. Always a pleasure whenever we visit.

Had lunch. Nice jacket potato, fluffy potato and generous filling. Clean, comfortable and popular restaurant. Covid secure and friendly staff. Good choice of food and healthy options available. Spotless! Would come again!

This little cafe in Perranporth is an absolute Jem. We have recently had a family holiday, staying at Perran Sands and this became our regular breakfast stop. The food is lovely, and the staff are so polite and extremely helpful, welcoming and generally just really...fantastic. A must try is their Carmel mochachino which was just perfection. I would highly recommend this place and we can’t wait to stop by on our next visit down to Cornwall.More

We stopped here for a scone. I was delighted to have a gluten free scone, which was a super consistency and (almost) the same size as the normal (gluten-filled) ones! My scone was gently warmed and came with loads of butter. I didn’t want the...clotted cream and they didn’t throw me out! I wanted to leave a tip but they weren’t set up for it on their card machines, so take cash for that if you’re going to visit. Really friendly and efficient wait staff – and lots of them.More

I had a delicious freshly cooked breakfast and service with a smile at this lovely little cafe. A new member of staff was on the till but as they bothered to explain this the fact that it took a little longer for her to enter...my order was not a problem. The loo was extremely clean and spacious. Well worth a visitMore

Great find. Great customer service with good food at a really good price. Nothing was too much trouble and if I wanted something a little different it wasn’t a problem. This included finding me a gluten-free bagel filled with breakfast items. A great range of...cakes including gluten-free options and a great lunch menu. The staff were a really pleasant bunch of people who couldn’t do enough for you and it was a pleasure to eat here. Can thoroughly recommend this place if you’re looking for a really good breakfast or a light lunch or even just a cake. Will definitely be returning in the future. Well done the Cove.More

The Cove Cafe Perranporth has to be congratulated for not only their excellent service and food, but also for keeping their prices to pre pandemic levels. Heartwarming not to feel ripped off for a change. Well done Cove Cafe.

Very nice café, friendly staff, nice food. Only surprise was that the crab and lemon mayo sandwich filling was all lemon and mayo. We both had the same, and neither of us could identify any crab flavour whatsoever. The salad and crisps were nice.
