Godrevy Café, St Ives

Set back from the dunes, chalet-style Godrevy Beach Café is owned by the National Trust.

This breakfast and brunch café transforms into a coffee shop in the afternoon, really handy if visiting Godrevy lighthouse (of Virginia Woolf fame) or going for a surf on the epic Atlantic breakers.

Perched back from the car park, which offers free parking for National Trust members, it is situated on the headland at the end of sweeping, sandy Hayle/Gwithian beach, a few minutes’ walk from the seal colony nestled in the secluded nearby cove.

With sea views from upstairs, the café is perfect for freshly-cooked quick bites, wraps, and healthy salads; on cold days hunker down for hot chocolates; in summer check out their fabulous cream teas.

A perfect stop during a long day at the beach or for a pre-coastal walk, where the menu is imaginative and tasty, making the best of quality local produce. Many people recommend the full Cornish breakfast … try it for yourself!
