A great new cafe!

On the way back from a circuit of Stithians lake yesterday, I took the opportunity to check out the new cafe at the Via Ferrata site on the Halvasso road, next to BF Adventure.  The huge granite quarry has been converted into a challenging climbing course, with high wire bridges, abseiling descents and zip wires.  The cafe ‘The Cornish Barista’  overlooks the quarry and has a good range of hot drinks, a full menu and a range of scrumptious looking cakes.  At the moment the road up to the centre is bike-unfriendly gravel, but they’re thinking about putting in a smooth cycle path and a bike rack.  Plenty of parking for cars, and good loos.  The cafe is open seven days a week, 9am – 4.30pm until the end of October – the winter hours are undecided as yet.  It’s a bit too close to Falmouth to be our main coffee stop, but if you’re on your way home from a long ride and want some more refreshment, this place is highly recommended.   See the website for more details:  viaferratacornwall.co.uk
