The Gylly Beach Cafe

Four hours in the car, one hour queuing for a coffee in the (no doubt) Covid enriched atmosphere of a dangerously overcrowded service station and half a pound of chocolate later and we are in lovely Cornwall.  

The Family Unit is tired, overworked and desperate for a break, and whilst the pandemic is a terrible thing, a few small upticks of good have come out of this.  Like, reminding yourself that the UK is a fab place to have a holiday. If you think this, you’ll be in good company – according to the Office of National Statistics, overseas residents made 7.8 million visits to the UK in the three months to March 2019 alone.

So, what’s Cornwall got to recommend it apart from beautiful scenery, great beaches, art galleries, the Maritime museum, outdoor activities, surfing, amazing gardens, historical sites…?  

If these don’t do it for you, then how about food? All over Cornwall, you can find great places to eat, with locally sourced produce often high on the menu.

One fortunate survivor of the lockdown is the Gylly Beach Cafe, in Falmouth.  This sits at the entrance to Gyllyngvase Beach with unrivalled sea views.  The clientele are a mixed bunch of beach goers, locals and visitors alike.  Food is fresh, looks and tastes good and is served, with a smile, by the waiting staff.

At lunchtime today, it was packed (in a responsibly socially distanced way).

A great place to drink coffee, eat cake and gaze at the sea.
