Had a cappuccino and a slice of carrot cake. The young lady behind the counter was very polite and the service was fast, but it was quite when I was there, by the time I left it was becoming busy. Can not fault it......Apart from having a bigger cup.....But that's just me. Yes I would recommend.

What ever your age and food needs your needs will be met at the Cove. Their full English will last the day but a coffee and cake may be all you need. It gets very busy in the season but worth going back if it is full the first time you visit.

We were looking for somewhere to have a light bite on New Years eve, after wandering all over the town we noticed The Cove behind some cars and vans from the other side of the road. The owners (I'm assuming the couple are the owners) are so happy, friendly and helpful. We only had paninis and toasties with tea and... More

A hearty breakfast or a coffee and biscuit, when in Perranporth this is a must. It caters for all ages and according to my grand-daughters serves the best hot chocolate. Whether you are a local or a visitor and in need of respite and refreshments -visit the Cove for a friendly welcome
