Needing a local location for reunion with family and friends I struck upon the idea of booking a table here, absolutely came up to expectations, brilliant lentil dhal, super mushroom and chestnut pie all rounded off with coffee amazing cakes and sweet meats. Not the first time we've been and won't be that last, great venue, great service, great food.

I have been trying to get into this little cafe for literally years and finally managed it this year. It was well worth the wait. The food is delicious all homemade. My advice would be as this is a very popular place to book a table as it fills up quickly Well worth the wait.

Thank you so much...and thank goodness you deemed it worth the wait! We do of course serve lunches well into the late afternoon, (provided that we haven't sold out of too much!), so you can usually find a table later, say, from 2pm. But then there's always cake too..... although that's not really my cup of tea!...... Thanks again for... More

From the laid back atmosphere, homemade cakes and savoury plates; The Honey Pot will far exceed other dining experiences you have in Penzance. It just quietly stands head and shoulders above the majority of other establishments in the area. I had a really beautifully made coffee - Temp and consistency of the steamed milk was spot on and the espresso... More

Only intended to have a mid afternoon tea , but the smell of baking caked drifting from the kitchen made us salivate ... The range of home baked cakes was a real conundrum , opted for the rugged looking carrot cake a s a nod to healthy eating , one mouthful later any notion of health became irrelevant , it... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. Every time I see we have a review, my heart skips a beat, (I slightly dread them), but when they'rs as nice as that, the carrot cake glow lights me up too.

I had coffee here with a couple of friends. We had a good time. Staff were quick in service, and also pleasant with it. The coffee was lovely, and the cakes looked gorgeous! I was avoiding cakes that week, so I can't report, but if they tasted as good as they looked......! This place gets very busy at times, so... More
