The cost of a coffee and choclate was unbelievable for a poor tasting cold cup of coffee in a not very clean place. Later in the day, along the same road, we found a much better cafe providing a better service, better beverages and MUCH...More

We are a welcoming, friendly, happy cafe-bar serving some of the best local produce in Cornwall. We serve specialty coffee from Origin Coffee Roasters, our meat is from our Local Butcher (Harvey Brothers) our bread comes daily from Baker Toms in Falmouth and our vegetables are all locally sourced. We offer wines and ciders from Polgoon Vineyard right here in Penzance and we have beers from St Austell Brewery and Keltek Brewery. We love dogs and have areas where you can relax with your four legged friend (plus Katie, one of our owners, is likely to give them a treat or two). We have a laid-back atmosphere whether you are in to read the papers, catch up with friends over a cocktail, or even a business meeting, we are here to look after you. We can take reservations and are even open for private hire, contact us for more details.
