We had a lovely brunch stop at Nauti this week. The ambience was friendly, and there seemed to be a good mix of locals and tourists. The harbour setting takes some beating. I really fancied a cream tea before leaving Cornwall, and the staff weren't phased in the slightest when I asked for it for breakfast! The scones were fresh... More

Went here for breakfast, I had lovely toasted soda bread, banana, honey and fruit compote, on the other hand my parter had the breakfast. Poor value for money and came with fresh spinach and watercress?! Was a little pricey, we don't mind paying if good. We wouldn't go again.

Stumbled across this place walking along the coast. It's busy but you soon see why, great staff, lovely atmosphere and the food is amazing! Had the vegan fry up which was insanely good, nothing greasy about it and the homemade beans made it! They also had 3 different types of vegan cake on offer as well as plant based milks.... More

Another example of the fact that the very good can get even better! Lovely brunch, lovely ingredients, friendly and helpful staff! Followed by a lovely Mango and Passionfruit Sorbet and a yummy Date Slice! Topped off by a lovely walk in the sun, barely a whisper of wind!

We ate twice in this café, and each time the food was beautifully prepared and cooked. Excellent for breakfast as well as for lunches. Good position, just opposite the harbour.

After a walk along the cliffs to Porthleven on a cold day, my friend and I called in here for a Cornish cream tea. We appreciated the warmth that we noticed as soon as we entered. We were able to sit at a table by the window, which had superb views over the outer harbour and out to sea. We... More

We had breakfast outside sitting in the sun despite it being December! The bacon and sausage were great and the eggs were cooked to perfection. The bread was also good and so was the quality of the tea etc. The cafe is right on the harbour so has great views.

Without a doubt a brilliant place for breakfast or brunch. We have visited 3 times in the last couple of months and on each visit it's been excellent. Food is well cooked and good quality. Staff are friendly and helpful. I might recommend the afternoon cake if we'd ever managed to call in after lunchtime! (We've been too full after... More

My husband and I take a stroll around Porthleven most weekends. We always end up here!! Last time we had a cream tea ( with coffee) which was absolutely amazing. The scones were huge and we had plenty of jam and cream for four scones. Excellent venue to people watch and absorb the sun and sea view. One of our... More
