Café Limelight

Visit our stunning Café Limelight, which arguably offers the best café views in Bude.

We’re open daily from 10am until 4pm offering a delicious selection of cakes and bakes as well as light refreshments and savoury lunches. We cater for common dietary requirements – just ask one of our staff who will be happy to assist you in making your choice.

Our dog friendly conservatory overlooks Summerleaze Beach’s sand dunes alongside the popular Bude Canal with views out towards the sea and the infamous Barrel Rock. Our outside decked area is open throughout the year and is perfect for enjoying a cream tea in the sunshine.

We also offer a limited takeaway menu, please ask at the counter. We’re proud to say that all our packaging is environmentally and marine friendly. Everything we offer is single use plastic free and we are a refill station for water and offer a discount for those using their own re-usable coffee cups. We work hard to try and source our ingredients in non-plastic containers in order to reduce our use of plastic even further. Where possible we recycle everything we can.

Why not treat yourself and your loved ones to a delectable Afternoon Tea? Indulge yourselves and take the time to enjoy good company, sandwiches, cakes and your choice of tea served in bone china tableware. Alternatively, why not spoil your family with a voucher as the perfect gift? Gluten Free and Vegan options available.
