Tresco's relaxed and welcoming café-deli, boasting epic harbour views and serving great coffee, light bites, refreshing drinks and picnic essentials throughout the day.

We’re all about great coffee and tea and great, local food & drink, sourced from the best suppliers we know.

With mesmerising sea views from the old seaplane slip, we serve picnic hamper essentials plus a simple menu of great local food and drink all day, every day.

Pick up picnic essentials for a purposeful day on the beach or boat, or take time to savour the company of a good book and a great coffee overlooking the ocean.

Breakfast on fresh pastries and smashed avocado on sourdough topped with poached free-range eggs, or pick up a granola pot or fresh loaf from Cornwall's Baker Tom to go.

Recharge mid-morning with great coffee from Cornish roaster Origin and fresh loose-leaf Tresco tea blends paired with local home-baked cake.

Savour a colourful salad bowl and a smoothie after a spa soak, refuel with a decadent deli sandwich, or simply laze into the afternoon with a glass of organic wine, a good book and the shimmering sea views…
