Kynance Cove Beach Cafe

We can’t think of a more beautiful place to enjoy a homemade Cornish cream tea than overlooking the stunning Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula in West Cornwall. The fine golden sand, crystal clear waters and dramatic towering rock stacks give you possibly the best views in Cornwall.

Kyance Cove Cafe serves a wide selection of food and drinks, with a focus on local produce. Samples from the menu include fresh crab sandwiches, baguettes (and of course Cornish pasties)  with homemade cakes and ice cream for those with a sweet tooth. Freshly ground coffee, a variety of teas, cold drinks and milkshakes are perfect to whet your whistle and prepare you for the trek back to the car park.

Kynance Cove Cafe closes during the winter so please check their website for opening times.
