Overlooking Henry’s VIII’s coastal fortress, picturesque Pendennis Castle, this family-run café provides a warm welcome. Superb service makes it popular with locals and visitors alike.
Set up and transformed by owners, Simon and Viv, in 2000, the café is open 364 days a year. By day, a chilled beach café, by night a buzzing restaurant, this is a unique, stylish place to enjoy good food with a great atmosphere.
Food is all locally-sourced wherever possible, with fish from St Ives, meat from Launceston, eggs from St Ewe, beer from St Austell, and bread from next door! Yes, a glass-fronted beach bakery brings hand-crafted artisan bread to the café, including focaccia, brioche and even Provencal fougasse for a European feel.
From a full Cornish breakfast to a burrito, through to gorgeous home-made cakes and brownies, or a full-on innovatively created evening meal from the local chefs, there’s plenty to try at Gylly.
To make your visit extra special, try a Sunday music nights, featuring the best of Cornish musical talent. Unmissable.
