Duchy of Cornwall Nursery Cafe

Top choice cafe in St Austell

Based at a renowned plant nursery, this super cafe overseen by chef Richard du Pille is a local secret. You can certainly get crab sandwiches and cream teas, but it's more a venue for bouillabaisse, a seafood platter and or seasonal tarts. Throw in views over the Fowey River and Restormel Castle, and you've got one of southeast Cornwall's foremost lunch spots.
