In the "Old Days" a place in this position would have served served pastie, chips and beans, if you were lucky. Now this wonderful place still sells pasties and also wonderfully cooked fish, chicken, steak with fresh crunchy salads and fantastic puddings. High class food served at the end of the "World"

If I could, I would give some bonus stars to them! Been there last year, I had terrible cold that time, ordered some food which was standard. However, one young lady gave me some ginger without even having to request for that because she realized how much I was suffering due to cold. They even heated our food in their... More

Mum and Dad visited from Dorset and we hit the Lizard - after a chilly but exhilarating walk around Kynance we visited Lizard and were pleased to see Polpeor Café - we were encouraged to bring the two dogs in and settled into the very busy café...

Just had Sunday lunch here, a week before Xmas. Cornish pasty and hot chocolate. What more do you need! Lovely friendly cafe, good menu, fantastic views. Spotlessly clean. Have never eaten here before despite many,many visits, usually in the summer. Would definitely recommend.

Open and quite busy on a December weekday. Good value, tasty but not spectacular food - the view provides that. A great place to visit.

This has to be one of the most wonderful Cafe's I could ever have the pleasure to visit. I think even if it was not on this perfect spot it would still be top class. The service is way beyond what you get in other cafe's the food is perfect regardless of what you order. Top marks for everything and... More

We came upon this Café after visiting the Lighthouse. It was VERY busy, and the staff were pushed to the limit. BUT it ran like clockwork, the food was good, the staff were friendly, and it was very reasonable.
