With gorgeous views of Fowey Valley and Restormel Castle, the café provides our visitors with a peaceful place to enjoy a bite to eat at any time of day.

Using locally-produced ingredients and all that is best in Cornish produce, the café serves food, snacks and light lunches every day from 9am until 4.30pm (10am on Sunday). From the terrace, you can take in the location and see the full extent of the nursery. It’s also the perfect place to browse through the daily papers and gardening books with a fresh coffee.

In summer, you can enjoy delicious sandwiches, seasonal salads and homemade bread and cakes with a glass of sparkling Camel Valley wine or a magnificent Cornish cream tea, which cannot fail to hit the spot. In autumn and winter there’s a glorious log fire in the grate of the café’s huge stone fireplace; just the place for the cosy comfort of a warming bowl of soup.

Focusing entirely on Cornish suppliers wherever possible, our talented team of chefs produce virtually everything on site, prepared freshly on a daily basis. The service staff excel at extending a genuine welcome to all customers and the relaxed atmosphere within the café is complimented by the calm, comfortable and contemporary décor.

In the past few years we are pleased to say that the café has won a number of awards from ‘Food’ magazine and ‘Taste of the West’, and we have established ourselves as a destination of choice for locals and visitors to the county.

We host a limited number of private events throughout the year. Contact us for more information.

There’s no need to book a table but it does mean that at our busiest times there may be a short wait before we can find you a table.
