Padstow has so many restaurants and cafe’s to suit all tastes, I have written on previous blogs about restaurants where we as a family have enjoyed a good dining experience. My favourite little cafe is Cherry Trees which is right on Padstow Harbour, in my opinion they do the best latte in Padstow and I love their scrambled eggs on toast!
Apart from delicious breakfasts and lunches Cherry Trees has an amazing mouthwatering selection of cakes! My family loves cakes and on a previous blog I wrote about a saffron cake which I bought from The Chough Bakery on Padstow Harbour, I tried to replicate this saffron cake at home but as Craig Revel Horwood would say it was a disaster darling! My sad attempt is pictured below I blame the recipe (of course) it was a James Martin recipe from Good Food magazine but only said half a teaspoon of yeast -no wonder it sunk in the middle! Don’t hang up your apron yet Mary Berry!
Another favourite of ours is the little cafe above the harbour called Green’s cafe, we like to play a round of crazy golf which is next door to Green’s cafe and then have one of their delicous cakes and a cup of tea whilst enjoying panoramic views of Padstow and the Camel estuary, you can see all the boats coming in and out of Padstow Harbour!
If anyone reading this has a foolproof recipe for Saffron cake I would love to hear from you! Perhaps we should have a who can bake the best saffron cake competition in Padstow?
