Nice cafe on the main road through tintagel. Had lunch here, BBQ pulled pork burger, ham dill pickle and mustard sandwich and the pate on toast with three drinks came to just over £20 which was good value. The pâté and pulled pork burger were both lovely but the ham sandwich could have done with being a bit chunkier maybe... More

I found Charlie's on TA and decided that we should give it a bash - thank goodness we did! We were staying 2 minutes up the road in Bossiney and ate there twice in the space of a few days. On both occasions we chose the homemade burgers (one meat, one veggie) and we have to say they are the... More

Finally Tintagel has a decent cafe! We came here for brekky because our hotel was still stuck in the 1970s. The food was gorgeous, the coffee was good, the ambiance was lovely and the service was friendly. What more could you want. Whatever you're doing keep doing it!

Friendly couple who serve lovely food particularly good being one of us vegetarian. Had the mezze would recommend. Tintagel most shops closed in winter hence great to find this little gem open during winter months.

Lovely atmosphere inside the cafe, but you can sit outside on warmer days. Lovely produce and very friendly staff. Great sandwiches and cakes. Will make sandwiches to take away should you wish to take them on a walk. Would thoroughly recommend.

Home made potted crab - the best we have ever tasted! Turkey with all the trimmings prepared with attention to detail - amazing flavours, finally Christmas pud with huge chunks of fruit in it and clotted cream. Wonderful welcome, wonderful atmosphere and wonderful meal! Thank you

Thought we'd stop by here before having a wander to the castle. Absolutely amazing! Quick service and the woman that served us was lovely. The best cream tea I've ever had with the cutest milk bottle! Will highly recommend.

I've had Cornish tea before...but this was the real thing and I loved it...this cozy little shop in a very old cottage---to be honest with you in Tintagel it's more amazing to find anything less than a couple hundred years old--is friendly, pleasant--it's what American expect to find in the UK and it's nice that along with the ambiance the...
