An ideal stopping place on the A39 for scrummy brunches and super coffee
Strong Adolfo’s isn’t your typical roadside cafe. Situated just off the A39 near Wadebridge, it’s a striking wooden building with panoramic glass windows and inside, the stripped-back interior has a clean, industrial feel.
At the heart of Strong Adolfo’s is Mathilda, originally from Sweden, and her husband John who has lived in Cornwall since the age of 12. Mathilda brought the Swedish tradition of “fika” – coffee with something sweet to accompany it – to the cafe. And this is certainly a great spot for fika, with speciality coffee sourced from Origin and a daily selection of delicious homemade cakes.
It’s a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch too, with influences taken from around the world.
