Summer has finally arrived and it has started to get really busy down in this part of the world. Soon we won’t be able to move in Padstow so we drove in early and looked for somewhere to eat breakfast. As we were early on a Sunday most places were still shut, but as we looked around the back streets we came across Rick Stein’s Cafe.
It is also a Bed and Breakfast establishment, hence why it was probably open. We had a look at the menu outside and it looked reasonable so we went inside.
Our breakfasts cost £9.95 each and were delicious, consisting of a full English breakfast, with toast, orange juice and coffee. The service was very good and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Both of us would have been quite happy to sit there all day, with copious amounts of coffee and a Sunday newspaper. Our table had a bench seat, complete with comfortable cushions to sink into!
By the time we left the cafe, Padstow was full to bursting so we had a wander around the harbour, got chatting to a very nice man who had been walking along the coast for the last six weeks, just him and his dog. It is just lovely to soak up the atmosphere of being beside the sea, seeing all the different types of people who converge on the town.
On our return we took a walk to the coast path, to watch the sun going down.
