Good value for money, great soup and coffee and lovely service. We ate here a few times during our week away. Upstairs has a view to die for. Would agree with the previous review, excellent apricot flapjack, and I have to admit, I have sampled...a good many over the years in various places!More

Hidden just off the main road so need to keep an eye out for the signs. Very friendly cafe and art gallery with good apricot flapjacks! There is an art gallery upstairs who at the time had an exhibition of Ken Swift's Sacred Stones work...and we ended up buying one of his pictures!More

This is a very pleasant, quiet spot. As is to be expected, the menu is limited but the quality is excellent. There was an interesting art exhibition when we visited. Off the beaten track but worth a visit.

Lovely cafe with gorgeous art gallery attached stumbled across it on our drive down the coast and would most definitely recommend. We even came away with a painting.

You could easily by-pass this little place en route from Pendeen to St Ives but well worth the detour. Good food in a calm friendly atmosphere surrounded by frequently changing artist exhibitors in both the café area and the upstairs gallery, along with stunning cliff...views. On a cold day a real oasis to rewind and get a bit of art on board !More

Lovely little cafe and gallery, not a lot of parking available but we managed. Took our little dog in with us. Loved the exhibition upstairs and could not resist buying a picture. Back downstairs we enjoyed tea and cake. Soya milk available, I am non-dairy....Cafe full of art/craft works, all so tempting. Wished we had lunched there, will be back again.More

For many years the School House Morvah has been one of my favourite places to visit. The café with its homemade soups, fresh bread and lovely cakes is always a joy to visit. There are local crafts on sale, and some charming info about the...area to browse in the café. Upstairs you will find the spacious and peaceful gallery filled with the wonderful light of West Penwith - not so far away you will see the magnificent Atlantic Ocean. Then there are the great exhibitions to see, I mustn´t forget those! Always impressive and stylishly displayed. This place is a great find just an easy walk along the lane from Pendeen village. Even though I now live in Reykjavík Iceland I visited in 2017 and 2018!More

We stopped randomly on the way to Lands End to have a cup of tea. We had a lovely chat and there is some great art. I ended up buying some silver earrings directly from the artist

Walked here in a very misty, thick fog and it was nice to stumble across this place. An art gallery and cafe, with a shop selling books of local interest etc. Had a wander around the gallery, upstairs is a lovely space, with what I...imagine is a great view down to the coast, however with the thick fog, we could see nothing. Had a pot of tea and some carrot cake which was welcome while we dried out a bit. Most, if not all the food served seems to be vegetarian, but if you are veggie, steer clear of the Cornish Hevva cake, looks delicious, but is made with lard.More

We were starting a long walk and what better than a good cup of coffee and some hevva cake or saffron bun? Upstairs with stunning views out towards the cliff and surrounded by beautiful art.
