Porthtowan Beach Cafe's Summer Nights 2017.


Here at Porthtowan Beach Cafe we are just a few passionate locals wanting to deliver a decent well priced menu in a fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Heather the owner and the fabulous team bring to you Panini's that are full to bursting, hand pressed burgers and local sea food specials.
There is home-made soup for the cold days, there is always a Gluten Free and vegan option available and you can take-away or sit in with everything on the menu.
We use Olfactory coffee because it's really smooth and guaranteed to perk you up before your surf or after your wind swept walk. The beans are hand roasted in Penryn, Cornwall and we are big fans!
We're nestled into the cliffs with a great view of the beach. A warm and cosy fire awaits you inside and there is plenty of seating outside overlooking the coast.
Porthtowan Beach Cafe has a wall mounted TV so you can enjoy your favourite surf DVD's even if the surf outside isn't there! There is a selection of free books and papers to enjoy if just want to huddle into a comfy sofa storm watching on a lazy weekend. Bliss...
All of our ingredients are of course locally sourced where possible - we live in Cornwall it would be rude not to! So our burgers are Cornish beef from just up the road, we only use fresh Cornish fish from Matthew Stevens. Da Bara bakery and Berrymans bakery and we use Healeys cider farm for our Apple juice. We recycle everything we can and use compostable plant based containers for our take away items.
We cannot offer you any alcoholic drinks with your meal but please feel free to BYO.
We bake all of the cakes and sweet things from scratch including the granola for breakfast!

Every Thursday for 6 weeks we will be hosting a different chef and friend of the café who will delight you with their culinary flair. Chill out in a relaxed setting with good friends and BYO booze to make it an extra special night.  These are ticketed only events so be sure to get yours soon. Vegetarian and Children options will be available but please make us aware at the time of booking. Whether this is inside or out, all the food will be on the table for all to share and enjoy together. Porthtowan Beach Cafe overlooking the beach. Setting out to deliver a glorious feast enjoyed with great views and good friends!


We welcome you to our lazy Jazz sundays where we will be serving Cornish lobster alongside our stunning evening menu. Local band 'the swing empire' will be providing the tunes and we your ever faithful friendly cafe will be non stop in the kitchen serving some awesome food.

Its free entry, music starts from 5pm and you can bring your own booze!
