Strong Adolfos

What do you get if you cross a great coffee maker, a surf-board shaper and motorbike customiser? The proprietor of a sub-cultural café on Cornwall’s Atlantic Highway, of course.

Take a trip on the Atlantic Highway – or the A39 as its less romantically known – from Newquay towards Devon and you won’t miss Strong Adolfos.

With its huge red ‘café’ sign on the roof, Strong Adolfos is Cornwall’s answer to cool Californian-cool café culture.

Mathilda and John Eldridge run the show, with the establishment recently celebrating a more than successful first year in business.

The interior is industrial but the food and drink is anything but. In addition to coffee there’s a great selection of smoothies – avocado and date had our vote – as well as a cold selection of drinks.

The kitchen serves freshly cooked breakfast and lunches with influence taken from around the globe. We spotted burgers, lentil dhal and tasty salads on the day that we visited with vegetarian, gluten-free and meat eaters all catered for across the menu.

Although the sandwiches and cakes here go against the grain, make sure to take a look at the daily-changing specials board for where it’s really at for lunches. For an idea of what to expect, check out a previous special’s board.

With its roots firmly planted in the art, surf and motorcycle scenes, you can also expect regular events along this theme; rallies for any number of wheeled machines, film nights and art exhibitions to name just a few.

Here, it’s the Strong Adolfos’ way, or the highway.
