Very impressed with this cafe mainly due to the video shown on the t.v. Screen about the awful flooding of Boscastle. How it was wrecked and how it was reformed. Totally amazing. Great coffee and cake plus a nice gift shop.

A lovely position overlooking the harbour with both indoor and courtyard seating and staffed by very friendly people. Attached to the visitor centre so you can view the video from the 2004 flood and then rejoice in the sympathetic rebuilding since
