this is a small café/gift shop but it is sooooooooo worth a visit and another visit. The atmosphere is sunny (even if raining), the staff are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. An outside area is beautiful in the sunshine but inside is lovely too with the owner's artwork on show and a little gift shop... More

Visited here on Good Friday with my husband and 13 year old daughter. They had been very busy and were just catching up but very friendly and accommodating. We sat inside as there was a chilly wind but they have a nice outside seating bit too. Very good choice of food, from cakes to sandwiches to cooked meals, all well... More

We've been coming to this little tea room for years and each time it's just wonderful. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is wonderful and always fresh. There's a little gift shop that's full of home made treasures by the talented Nin as well as locally made gifts there's something for everyone. Certainly one of Cornwall's hidden gems... More

Great food for our last time in the area this Season. The sun was shining and we sat outside. The staff are so friendly and the flat breads are delicious.

This isn't gourmet, it's good home made food and a really great price. The staff and surroundings are friendly and welcoming. It isn't pretentious at all and their breakfast baps are the best!

Based on the excellent reviews, we decided to have breakfast here. looked up on trip advisor, says it was open on Monday, so travelled 30 minutes, to discover a sign advising it was closed until Wednesday. We don't be trying this location again in the future

We always visit here when in Cornwall and usually more than once. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming, lovely family staff who remember your name! The food is home-made and really, really good, as is the coffee and chat! The portions are more than generous and the prices very reasonable. There is also a shop where you can purchase original artwork... More

We popped in for breakfast before we drove home. Really glad we did. Lovely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our two Border Collies were made extremely welcome and were immediately given biscuits. Lovely, fry up for both meat eaters and veggies 😊 highly recommend.
