Visited Polpeor Cafe on a recent trip down to Cornwall. This was my first visit to the Lizard and it's fair to say it won't be the last. Beautiful place and the views from the cafe are stunning, if a little windy (well, it IS...More

I'm not sure sorry it is quite a while since I visited and I'm not local. As far as I am aware they are open all year round. And if I remember rightly only open till about 4pm.
Is this restaurant open tomorrow ? For breakfast ?
