The Porthminster Cafe is a firm favourite with Coast readers - it was joint winner in this category in 2008 and a runner-up in 2009.  Our judges are equally enamoured with its high standard of service and culinary excellence.  But what clinched this year's Award is the Cafe's concern for sustainability (for example, including unmarketable bycatch on the menu) and affordability.  In the past year, it has opened a Fish & Chip Shop beneath the restaurant.  'This is a great way to cater to people who can't afford to eat there, 'says coastal entrepreneur and beauty writer Jo Fairley.
