Really nice little cafe right on Boscastle Harbour. Friendly, efficient staff. Good quality food and reasonably priced. Beautiful surroundings. Disabled access and toilet which was a pleasant surprise given how small the place is.

Decided to stop here for a cream tea and a cuppa. The tea was delicious and very large. The service was impeccable.
