Best cooked breakfast I've ever had. High quality ingredients and cooked to perfection. Every bite was full of flavour and the service was great too. I'm tempted to go back to penzance just to come back here. 10/10

We stumbled across this place upon wandering into Penzance from the waterfront and made up we did! Food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly. We could have tried every dish on the menu they all sounded so yummy! A really nice vibe

Food was good but service was so SLOW. Asked for Menu so many times a nearby table handed us theirs. Drinks were gone before food arrived. Don't go here if you want timely service. Needless to say we won't be back.

We love visiting the Honey Pot in Penzance, it is usually very busy so booking is advised. Tucked away close to trendy Chapel Street, The Honey Pot offers a good selection of dishes for lunch as well as an array of delicious cakes. They occasionally...offer a Sunday lunch and have found it to be the best we have had that has not been cooked at home!More

We dropped in here for breakfast a couple of weeks ago and I remembered that after thanking the chef and front-of-house staff on a really really nice bit of grub, they said 'leave a review on trip advisor, it really helps'. So here I am....Good quality ingredients and really well cooked and presented food. A relaxed atmosphere and lovely helpful staff. I'd eat here every day if I could, and will return whenever I'm in the area. highly recommend.More

We stopped here for lunch on a trip to Penzance after a quick search through Trip Advisor. It was a Saturday lunch and really busy, we managed to nab the last table, but if you plan in advance I think you can book. It was...super cozy and the food was good which a nice selection. Service was a bit slow, but honestly we are know how tough the hospitality industry are finding it to get staff at the moment, so we were happy to wait. We'll definitely visit again, I need to try some cake!More

Dog, kid, OAP and people friendly. Great choice of food and had a lovely lunchtime meal in there today. I am Celiac and was spoilt for choice. Had a jacket spud with Coronation Chick Peas and winter Coleslaw. Service was good and loved the age...gap amongst the customers. This will be a regular stop now when visiting Penzance!More
