A lovely selection of food for the non meat eater … I thoroughly enjoyed the quiche with smoked Cornish cheese. The accompanying salad was a refreshing change from the "norm"; an interesting and tasty selection of beans, grains, slaws etc rather than some limp leaves!...More

Visited with family this week for lunch: very good Homity pie, delicious home made quiche and fresh and tasty salads with flavoursome dressing. Coffees a bit hit and miss, but the cakes looked delicious - we just didn't have room for them!

Archie Browns is like an oasis in Penzance - a great place for a nice sit-down vegan lunch. The menu is a combination of vegetarian and vegan, but there is plenty of choice for vegans. Their salad selection is especially good! Enjoy.
