Are you ever in need of the perfect morning pick me up? Here's five breakfast spots, certain to start your day off the right way.

Smokey Joe’s


Smokey Joe’s is one of Cornwall’s under credited gems. Located just off of the A30 towards Scorrier, Redruth, the trucker restaurant is a worthy destination for any trip. Renowned for the beautiful homemade dishes, succulent steak nights and gigantic cooked breakfasts. Joe’s is one stop you definitely don’t want to miss.

The family run business has been established for over 50 years now, welcoming each costumer into their friendly atmosphere with a proper Cornish greeting.

Their huge breakfast menu caters for both meat eaters and vegetarians, with a selection of breakfast sizes. This includes ‘The Hungrymans’, a monstrous meal that would make any royal feast blush!

Containing 2 free range eggs, 2 pork sausages, 2 thick rashers of bacon, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, hogs pudding, fritters and 2 fried slices, plus toast on one huge platter. Unbelievably, its only £7.  Yes, seven pounds - an absolute bargain! There’s one thing for sure, you will not be needing lunch later that afternoon, or even dinner for that matter.

So head on down to Smokey Joe’s for a substantial breakfast to fuel you for the rest of the week.

Chapel Café


Chapel Café is in the heart of the stunning village of Port Isaac, situated on Roscarrock hill along the rocky Cornish coast. The Chapel Café is an inspiring small family run business which is running in its third year now, with a simple passion of providing delightful local food and drinks.

The café was created by restoring a 19th century Methodist chapel for a beautifully classic finish in a truly picturesque Cornish town. With a wonderful selection of breakfasts and homemade sandwiches, it’s the perfect location for a quick bite if you’re just passing through.

Why not try their unbelievable eggs royale? With free range eggs layered on Scottish smoked salmon alongside homemade bread and hollandaise sauce, it’s the perfect indulgence.

Chapel Café encourages their staff not to fit the traditional service roles, but spurs them to portray their true characters and personalities. Enabling both you and the staff to enjoy your experience as much as you will do with their food, offering customers nothing but quality, well served ingredients at low prices. What more could you ask for?

It’s not just a scrumptious breakfast served here, it’s a fabulous experience.

The Old Lifeboat House Bistro


A truly stunning and simplistic restoration of a special historic building, overlooking Penzance’s harbour with St. Michael’s Mount standing proud on the horizon. The granite lifeboat house was first built in 1884, which still presents the original two terracotta roundels of the RNLI crest above the doors as you walk in.

Their breakfast menu is served between 9:30 – 11:30 each day except Sunday, closing at 11am.  The Old Lifeboat House Bistro offers costumers Cornwall’s most succulent breakfast menu, from Coxswains Full English with all the trimmings, to local smoked salmon caught at Newlyn. Also don’t miss their unbelievable breakfast special taking the form of the Chef’s bubble and squeak, which is also available for vegetarians.

Or if you’re not feeling too peckish, Bistro serves a mean cream tea that proudly reflects the beauty of being Cornish!

Charlies Café Restaurant and Online Deli


Tintagel’s delight comes in the form of Charlies Café, a stunning family restaurant worthy of all its merits and glory. Using mainly Cornish produce with a focus of fresh and local ingredients, served in a simplistic manner allowing the ingredients to burst with flavour with each bite.

Serving up a mouth-watering breakfast menu each Tuesday to Saturday, presenting everything you could ever want for breakfast. American Pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon, 8oz Cornish ribeye steak with eggs, organic porridge, smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels and Back bacon and leak baps just to name a few.

Tintagel is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful seaside towns, with spectacular sea views from its castle ruins that requires a spectacular café to soak up an appetite after a gorgeous coastal walk.
