Had quite a few takeout coffees from here and very good surf school but rather like a motorway service station they have the monopoly and thus it's a bit on the pricey side. Guess it's just good to make your profits off the emits whilst you can in the summer months

Thanks for your review - glad you like the coffees. Since we took over in September we have not changed the prices and yes, it is a long winter! More

Went to this cafe on an invitation with a group. Great setting, clean and smart, very good food and happy and cheery service. When the weather's fine it's great to sit outside.

We went there as a group of 6, 4 adults, a 7 year old and 2 year old toddler. The lunch menu is not that extensive which is good and we all found something that we liked without to much trouble. The food was of a surprisingly high standard considering the physical size of the cafe and well priced. We... More

Another short and sweet stop in at Sunset Surf. Hadn't been for a while and so much has changed. The changes are fantastic and it's great to see that the food and the heart of the business remains very much intact. Can't get there as much as I'd like but it's a must whenever we are local. Highly recommend a... More

Can get crowded inside when the sea fret comes down but no better place to see the sunset. Good for discreet phone charging inside. Counter service with surf named stones instead of numbers to take to your table. Non surfers may need to pay attention to the surf term being called out by the staff!

Thanks for the review - love the discreet charging bit - we don't mind as long as people don't take the mick! Do come back and see us soon for another sunset. More

Walked through the sand dunes along the coast & arrived shortly after the 10am opening time. Breakfast cooked to order, complimented with coffee & a berry smoothie. £20 all in with a great view of Gwithian Beach. A great find if you stumble across it, a lovely meal if you've already found it on Tripadvisor.

Lovely place to stop for lunch while walking along the coast, food was great and staff friendly and polite and great views of the beach on the terrace. Definitely worth a visit.

We stopped for breakfast on our way to the airport and cannot recommend this place enough. I just wish it wasn't our last day that we found it! Very gluten free friendly for my partner and I had delicious eggs Royale. The views are amazing over the beach too. We will definitely be back next year as the lunch menu... More

Thanks for the response and we are so glad you enjoyed your breakfast. We do try to cater for everyone - most of our menu is gluten free and we can do gluten free batter for fish and chips as well. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More
