Our Café in Padstow has something for everyone – light lunches, relaxed dinners, coffee and cake.

Our informal, family friendly café with atmospheric Cornish charm provides a relaxing pause in the middle of Padstow from lunch until late.

The menu features locally sourced produce and the freshest fish, combined to create simple dishes inspired by Rick’s travels around the world – especially the Far East. His salt and pepper prawns, for example, have been a mainstay on the menu ever since he bought the recipe back from Hong Kong in the 90s.

Our full menu is available all day or join us before 3pm to choose something from our sandwich menu – including hot smoked salmon with crème fraiche and capers. Enjoy some peace and quiet during the hustle and bustle of summer with a glass of something cold in our dog-friendly courtyard.

This recipe originally hails from Rick’s classic Seafood Odyssey book, and was the first dish that he ate at a Chinese restaurant in Peterborough all the way back in 1964. During his recent Food Stories travels in Suffolk, a visit to Aldeburgh inspired him to cook it again using white crab meat, fresh sweetcorn and a decent chicken stock as the base. It’s a simple dish that relies on good, fresh ingredients.
