About Shiva

A health-inspired cafe with a difference.

Shiva is a health-inspired cafe, with a yoga & Pilates studio run by Chloe & Jimmy which was inspired by their love of travel, obsession with good coffee, fresh food and passion for yoga & surfing. After years of living & working in India, the dream of creating a similar vibe in Newquay became a reality in 2020.

The Cafe

Shiva serves an all-day brunch menu, a special salad of the day and gorgeous pastries from Da Bara. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options are also readily available so there is something for everyone. To complement their brunch menu they also serve an eclectic drinks menu from freshly made smoothies to chai lattes and everything in between. For anyone with a green thumb, the used coffee grounds are available outside every day to take back and nourish your compost. A stocked bar of spirits and other alcoholic beverages is also available for those wishing to indulge.

The Studio

Nestled in the heart of Nansledan, Shiva is not only a cafe but a yoga studio, workshop and treatment space, meaning you can nourish your body, mind and soul. A wide range of classes and courses is available throughout the year and spaces book up fast so be sure to check the latest timetable and book online today.
