Coffee & cycling on the Cornish coastline

Is there any better way to explore Cornwall than on a dreamy bicycle ride? Whether it’s from coast to coast on a summer cycle, or through the magical forest of Tehidy on an autumnal adventure, be sure to start or end your journey at The Hub. The quaintly rustic décor and seafront setting makes this sweet café a seaside haven, whatever the weather.

Although this quirky café is not exclusively for cyclists, it can certainly provide all the fuel you need for your Cornish explorations! Kick-start your morning with much needed caffeine – adventuring sure is tiring. The Hub’s freshly ground artisan coffee will awaken your senses, pair with patisserie treats and your holiday breakfast is complete. I personally adore the creamy caramel latte and sugary cinnamon bun combo – the recipe for a heavenly morning! A variety of breakfast options are available on the menu, from ham & cheese croissants to smashed avocado & scrambled eggs on toast. Served 9am - 11am, why not start your day the right way?

The Hub’s lunch menu boasts all kinds of delicious dishes, served from 11am - 5pm there’s no reason for you to miss out on this gem. With veggie and gluten free options widely available, you’ll discover your perfect lunch platter. There’s an inventive selection of toppings for the Mediterranean flatbreads which include chicken curry & mango, crayfish & avocado with a marie rose dressing or the classic mozzarella and tomato. Fancy something a little healthy? Try the sweet potato wrap, brimming with a falafel and hummus filling, this colourful creation will satisfy all your lunch cravings. Further to this, there are numerous salads, soups and hot bowls available; hearty food that’s good for the soul.

During the summer months, a dinner date with the backdrop of a glorious Cornish sunset is a must for your holiday to-do list. The sunset sharing platter and a bottle of prosecco will give you that Friday feeling every day of the week. From 4pm-9pm you can nab your own dish of delights, which offers a selection of continental meats, Cornish cheese, olives and artisan bread. There are several rustic sharing plates from the Sundowner Menu, why not pair with a local craft beer for the ultimate evening treat.

Most importantly, The Hub’s renowned cake selection is home to the definition of guilty pleasures! From salted caramel cupcakes, chocolate orange brownies and rustic lemon & blueberry cake to the Cornish pride and joy; the cream tea.  The Hub have taken this Cornish legacy and added a savoury twist with the Chef’s favourite ‘Cheese Tea’, which offers a warm Baker Tom’s cheese scone, wedge of Cornish brie, Cherry Tree chutney, walnuts with a side salad to garnish and a pot of Cornish Smuggler’s Brew Tea. It’s every cheese lover’s dream and the perfect indulgence after an afternoon bicycle ride – you won’t be able to resist!

Whether you’re popping in for a coffee before your cycle hire or you fancy a scrumptious luncheon amidst exploring Portreath harbour, The Hub is a must-visit Cornish gem.
