Gwithian's only beachside café, bar and surf hire -

Summer 2022 Hours & Food Menu Options

  • Monday & Tuesday 10am – 4pm Baps & Sandwiches Only
  • Wednesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm Full Menu

So, nearly all the kitchen staff are fit and healthy again…

…On Wednesday 27th July the boys in the kitchen will be prepping the menu so on Wednesday there will be no breakfast – coffee and cakes as usual from 10am and sandwiches from 12pm. Then, from Thursday 28th onwards we’ll have the main menu on for breakfast and lunch – We will still be offering our limited menu of baps and sandwiches on Mondays and Tuesdays (so the boys can have their well deserved days off) throughout the Summer. We can’t thank everyone enough for their patience while we have worked through this tricky time. Roll on a fantastic Summer of fun, sun, surf and good vibes at Sunset Surf.

We can’t wait to see you!

We like to think that everything we do embodies the laid-back Cornish lifestyle. From our use of Cornish suppliers, to employing local staff, we not only support our community, but also give our customers great, fresh food and efficient service. This is made even more enjoyable by our incredible view of Gwithian beach.

We are still searching for a second chef so if you would like to chef in one of the best Cafes in Cornwall right on Gwithian Beach with your evening’s free, why not drop us a line HERE


From a full English to an afternoon Cream Tea, our extensive menu offers plenty of choice. Everything is cooked fresh from local suppliers; so if you have any dietary requirements, just let one of the team know.
