Pinky Murphy's Cafe - Surf's Up in Cornwall

Wandering along the narrow streets of Fowey, Cornwall, we chose the eclectic world of Pinky Murphy's Cafe for lunch. A cross between Southern California in '68 and the surfer beach huts in Cornwall today, Pinky Murphy's is a kaleidoscope of delicious colors, patterns, textures and aromas with couches, bean bag chairs, and comfortable beach chairs covered with fluffy pillows and beach towels arranged for cozy seating.

Open 7 days a week, 9-ish to 5-ish (Sunday 9:30 to 4-ish), the cafe has a wide selection of food beautifully prepared, including daily specials worthy of a return trip. While they don't serve pints or wine, one may BYOB anytime and they will provide the glasses. Peter enjoyed a cutting board platter of parma ham, salami and homemade pate served with homemade bread, green salad leaves, blushing tomatoes and sweet chili sauce. I selected one of the specials - baked sweet potato with goats cheese and a green salad with balsamic dressing. 

Although the outside seating is limited, if one is lucky enough to rest awhile on the front deck overlooking the Fowey River and the narrow lane below, one might curl up with a cup of tea and a good book, or gather with a group of friends after the "gentle" 4 mile stroll around Hall Walk.

HALL WALK - (As easy as walking up and down any well worn path at a 30 degree angle)
Basic walk: from Fowey across the Bodinnick Ferry, climbing to Hall Walk which us south to Pont Pill, then over the hill past Lanteglos Church to Lantic Bay and west to lower ferry at Polruan. Back through the streets of Fowey.
