The Garden Kitchen Cafe is set in the heart of the tranquil garden centre surrounded by exotic plants and flowers. The staff serve a menu of delicious, locally-sourced, homemade food, prepared by Porthleven local and Cafe Manager, Derek Fox and his team. Arrive early to enjoy breakfast with us, or a little later to sample a delicious home-cooked lunch. Of course, no afternoon visit is complete without tea and cake, or an irresistible Cornish cream tea too! Plus, the surroundings are wonderful whatever the weather. Cosy up in the cafe by the wood burner on a cold winter’s day or soak up some sunshine on the cafe terrace in the summer – enjoying the best view of the garden centre.
