A light super by the beach

My delicious Cray fish tail salad

Our guests came home the other day, full of praise  for the little Cabin Cafe, that is the last stop before the sea in Perranuthnoe and some times the washing up just doesn't call so it seemed an idea opportunity to sample this new young (two years probably but i move slowly sometimes!!) local eatery the other evening.

We found a proper beach cafe with the golden sand trodden up the slip way from the beach to its welcoming serving hatch surrounded by a gaggle of pre loved books for charity , buckets and spades beach ball and post cards. We pored over the black board menu and chose the Cray fish tail salad brilliant value at under £7 and just right for us before choosing a table on the deck too watch the evening surfers in the sea below and we were soon tucking into supper with a few other diners that appeared still sandy from the beach - couples nibbling ice cream, beautifully behaved children quietly eating beans on toast for high tea - as I said a proper beach cafe.... in fact boy did that cake look good i might have to go back - purely in the interest of research you understand!

Looking across the little cafe garden towards the gently
lapping waves

Our opening hours vary depending on the time of year - 8.30am to 8.00pm in the high season, and 10.00am to 4.00pm in the winter. We are here every day except Christmas Day. If you want to check if we're open, feel free to call us on 01736 711733"

Also in Perranuthnoe the yummy Peppercorn Cafe I'm hoping they will open some evenings again this summer because their Pizzas were delicious and I'm too busy in the day tome to enjoy there wonderful food!!

and not forgetting the seriously foodie Victoria Inn (book at least three days in advance though)
