Food For Thought
Updated: Jan 19
We wouldn't have the room to namecheck all of the fantastic places to eat in the area, so we have chosen just a few of our favourites as a highlight of what culinary delights are on offer. Kennack Sands has two beach cafés that are open during the main season. They serve snacks, light lunches and plenty of Cornish ice-cream!
At The Lizard, we love to watch the sea from either Polpeor Café or Wavecrest, both of which you'll find at Lizard Point, serving lunches and the renowned Cornish Cream Tea. In the village itself, you can grab a barista coffee at Coast or a fresh fish supper from Smugglers, the village fish and chip shop.
Coverack has some great eateries both in the village itself and nearby. Roskillys is always a family favourite for its homemade ice-cream and wood-fired pizzas cooked on an impressive outdoor oven.
A little further down the road, The Greenhouse in St Keverne offers a modern bistro menu, or for a more relaxed feel, Fat Apples Café at Porthallow serves an amazing breakfast menu as well as lovely lunches.
Porthleven's cafés and restaurants have put it firmly on the foodie map. Nauti But Ice is a family friendly ice-cream parlour and café with an evening pizza restaurant next door. The Square offers a brasserie-style menu with a terrace overlooking the harbour, and newly refurbished restaurant Amélie offers Mediterranean-inspired dishes right on the harbourside.
For a tasty takeaway you can't get more Cornish than a pasty. Our favourites are from Ann's Pasties, and you can purchase these tasty treats from one of their shops in The Lizard, Mullion, Helston or Porthleven. They even do mailorder, so when you return home from your holiday you can still order a taste of Cornwall, delivered fresh to your door! Another of our favourites is Jumunjy, serving authentic Thai cuisine from a restaurant and takeaway in nearby Cury.
