Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband walked to Truro football club to visit the mobile bread van last Sunday. Loads of bread available & bread flour also! Well managed, good queuing system, friendly staff. The bread, as always, was delicious. Today I’ve finished off the last loaf with toast...in bed & lashings of butter!More

Takes me 30 in to drive to B.Tom but always worth it. The endless toast for £2.00 is a must but this time we went for the Christmas lunch. Whow has to be better than Mum would Make. Delicious turkey, 4 types of veg, 5...roasties , y.pud, three pigs in blankets and a large gravy boat of yummy gravy. What not to love.More

Family who live here recommended this place as can’t miss it! Not sure why really ? It was busy and looked initially great . However the cracks soon appeared- ordered a bap with bacon and halloumi, from the menu and the waitress didn’t know what...halloumi was? They obviously don’t know how to cook it either as what arrived was literally the smallest ( I said when my roll arrived , sorry I ordered halloumi also to which after looking hard I saw it !) most anaemic looking bit of limp cheese Iv ever seen . Along with some cold, fatty, grey bacon and surrounded by a dry, inedible “ brioche “ bun, it was the saddest breakfast Iv had in a long while! Husband has the baby breakfast which was literally nothing more than average and to which he said “ glad I didn’t order the bigger one as at least this is cheap”. Toast was nice thank god, so I ate this and left wishing I’d had a burger van bap. Didn’t make a complaint at the time as the staff were working hard and it was only pennies at the end of the day . My uneaten bap will say it all when the clear up I’m sure .More

Lovely place to go fro breakfast and lunch. Unfortunately it is so popular you can struggle to get in. The bathroom is absolutely amazing. The breads are delicious and the place itself although small is very comfortable. We have had breakfast a few times and...never been dissapointed. The car park is very small and always full but you can order over the phone and collect food.More

I’ve been visiting the St Austell shop daily recently and absolutely love the meal deal for a quick lunch treat. A great selection of sandwiches and the staff are always happy to make anything to order. The shop is well layed out and the staff...are knowledgeable of all the products and always happy to help and talk through items which is a lovely touch. PLEASE stay in St Austell, we need more of this as everything is closing recently.More

And there goes the diet.... 🤤 Found this by accident, was hungry and saw it pop up on my sat nav. Was expecting just a typical bakery not an actual fully working factory. The food was amazing, can you get fresher than this. I’m writing...this review contemplating whether to buy the amazing giant Chelsea bun that is staring at me along with everything else. Will be back. Great area as well and lovely breakfast buttie.More

My 1st visit to Barker Tom's Cafe at Redruth for breakfast with my friend. The staff were busy baking fresh bread,cakes and serving customers in a very friendly atmosphere and spotless clean. The Bacon and Egg sandwich was delightful (Back Bacon x2) with a love...cooked fried egg which when cut allowed the york to run. Really tasty with no fat/oil so even better. The fresh bread was to die for, really tasty and worth buying a loaf to bring home. Sure will visit again.More

I have given this cafe 5 stars previously but today i was very disappointed.The cafe was absolutely freezin (had to eat with my coat on) and looked in need of a clean.My table was sticky and grubby,the sauce bottle was disgusting. The bacon was inedible,all...fat,and the sausage tasted ok but looked pale and unappetising. My last comment i suppose is more of a question...why have a toaster that doesn’t toast? My money will be spent elsewhereMore
