A lovely place with a view to stop for coffee/tea and snacks. Or even a Unicorn milkshake. We sat on the terrace, service was very prompt and food and drinks great. The only downside was the toilet was out of order.

It was one of the best tea & scones I've ever had - so delicious! We also visited again on "Paella night" and they had a veggie paella, so I was very pleased with that. It tasted delicious and was plentiful and affordable.

Many childhood memories in Coverack, including visits here. Food always really nice, been a long time since we have had an evening meal here, but lunch was lovely. Beautiful views of the beach and harbour.

My wife daughter and I had afternoon tea here a few days ago and I have to say it was absolutely first class. We sat outside in the warm September sunshine and got our drinks of tea and coffee within minutes of ordering. The sandwiches, scones, cream and jam, and mouthwatering cakes soon followed. All served on tiered china plates... More

Sit inside or outside and enjoy the sea views. Dogs welcome on the terrace. This year a paella eat in or take away was a weekly special on Wednesdays. Good range of food and snacks- lunch, afternoon or evening
