Lovely cafe hidden away down a leafy lane in Porthallow, right on the coast path. My wife and I had a lovely lunch here and received a very warm welcome.

Lovely relaxed place with indoor and outside seating. Excellent home made cakes and scones and choice of hot and cold drinks. Gifts to browse and buy and friendly staff. Recommend the apple cake made from apples from the orchard opposite!

Homemade delicious lunches, breakfasts and cakes. Quality ingredients used to make the tastiest side salads to dress sandwiches, quiches etc. It happens to be very good value but it's the food that will bring us back again. Dog friendly.

Near the end of a 15 mile day on the SW Coast Path I was becoming desperate for a reviving cup of tea when I rounded a corner and there was the sign for Fat Apples.
