Situated at the heart of the fishing village of Port Isaac on Roscarrock Hill, Chapel Café is a relaxed eatery and coffee shop attached to Port Isaac Pottery. Open throughout the day, the family-owned café serves a menu of simple but crowd-pleasing dishes made using locally sourced Cornish ingredients, alongside a selection of cakes, scones, teas and more. Chapel Café is also licensed to serve alcohol with food meaning you can also come here to wine and dine. Whether you're meeting someone for a coffee in Port Isaac or are looking for a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a hearty lunch, Chapel Café is well suited to a wide range of occasions.
The restored 19th century Methodist church which houses the café and pottery studio is stunning on the outside and in. The large open space where the café is based is flooded with light and decorated in blue and white to give the place a coastal feel, while pieces of pottery made on site are displayed around the well-spaced tables. A wrap-around mezzanine level above is home to the pottery studio itself and various paintings and textiles provide flashes of colour.
Chapel Café's food menu begins with breakfast options including a bacon and tomato sandwich and a full Cornish breakfast, which can be accompanied by a cup of locally roasted coffee. When it comes to lunch, there are various things to choose from such as smoked haddock and lemon fishcakes, a roasted vegetable frittata, an award-winning hake fish finger sandwich, and jacket potatoes. Children are also catered for with dishes like sausage, chips and beans. Finish your meal here with a scoop of ice cream or a slice of homemade cake.
As well as the hot drinks on offer at Chapel Café, you can also wash your food down with a glass of wine or a bottle of local beer.
