Rick Stein's Cafe // Padstow

Padstein

Relaxed and stylish cafe in the heart of Padstow with an inspired menu worthy of the reputation of celebrity chef Rick Stein


The Rick Stein Cafe is located in what feels like the bright and airy cottage living room in the middle of Padstow - which is more or less what it is. As part of the Padstein empire you are certain to get quality, innovative food, but this has been combined with a casual dining experience and reasonable pricing.

The cafe has earned itself a reputation as one of the best spots in Padstow to fill up on a top-notch breakfast before a day's exploring. Whilst the full English cooked breakfast is as good as any there are also plenty of other options drawing on more cosmopolitan influences. As you would expect everything from the marmalade to the pastries is all homemade on site.

It isn't just breakfast though; you can pop into Rick Stein's Cafe for a light lunch or an a la carte dinner. Whilst, unsurprisingly, much of the menu is seafood there are plenty of other options, including vegetarian dishes. True to the Rick Stein ethos there are an eclectic mix of Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences on the cuisine which might not work under the management of lesser chefs. However, the cafe pulls it off and all at prices that won't make your eye's water.
