C-Bay Cafe, Bar & Bistro, Crantock

Muddy says: Perched above one of my all-time favourite Cornish beaches, C-Bay serves up hearty breakfasts, healthy brunches, fresh seafood and cream teas by the sea. What’s not to love?

A popular café/ bistro with a killer Cornish view, C-Bay overlooks Crantock Beach, just a short drive from the bustling surf town of Newquay.

During the day, C-Bay has a laidback café feel and serves up healthy and hearty breakfasts, homemade cakes, fresh ‘Olfactory Coffee’ and iced smoothies.

On the lunch menu, you’ll find lighter options like soup or salads, classic ciabatta’s and sandwiches and more substantial dishes such as burgers or fish & chips, for when you need a proper feed.

Afternoon Tea is another highlight, served with Tregothnan tea, Rodda’s cream and Boddington’s strawberry jam. Combine this with a trip to the newly opened Crantock Bay Spa and you’ve got a perfect day out right there!

In the evening, the tone is a little more sophisticated, with a menu of modern British dishes, starring locally sourced produce.

There are tables available inside and out, on the large sun terrace and all enjoy views across Crantock Bay and the coastline beyond.

I would definitely combine a visit to C-Bay with a coastal walk, as the scenery is stunning; you’ll want to get amongst it. And if you have children and/ or a dog in tow they will be welcomed here too (there’s a kids menu on offer).

Got a special celebration coming up? The team at C-Bay also caters for weddings and other private functions.
