Rick Stein's Cafe

Relaxed cafe culture in the heart of Padstow

You can drop in for breakfast or a cake with a morning cappuccino, enjoy a light lunch or three-course dinner as the relaxed informal style of the café is designed for everyday eating.

It’s a great spot for breakfast, with a range of tempting options to choose from including toasted sourdough or wholemeal walnut bread with homemade marmalade, jam or marmite, Rick’s breakfast bhaji or a traditional English breakfast.

The menu here has an eclectic mix of influences, with dishes inspired by Thai, Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine. There’s Pad Thai with king prawns alongside salads of fennel seed salami, prosciutto and mozzarella with cherry tomatoes.

Looking for somewhere to stay nearby? You don’t need to go far – the cafe has three cosy rooms with fireplaces and four poster beds just upstairs.

Sample menu


Salt and pepper prawns, £7.95


Cod curry from pondicherry, £13.95


Apple and blackberry pie, £5.95
