An interesting combination of gifts and cafe. Coffee was excellent and the staff very helpful. We returned several times during our week's stay.

We found this little cafe by accident and since there was a table outside we dived in for a bit of lunch. Very good find - we shared a platter of Cornish cheeses, cooked meats and mackerel pate with lovely toasted herby bread. All scrumptious!!

Popped in here after visiting Restormel Castle. Nice cup off coffee and friendly service. As you face the shop we parked to the right in front of the river which is free to park.

Friendly welcome from Ashley when my father and I arrived. Table service. Both of us decided on the brie and chutney toasted ciabatta, followed by a great coffee. A lovely visit once again. Looking forward to our next visit. See you soon

Enjoyed a brilliant 3 course vegitarian mexican meal at White Light this evening. It was so good I did not stop to take a picture. Food was cooked to an excellent standard, also provided chicken fried rice for my friend. Service from Ash and Tracey...was very good as allways. Hoping the evening opening on a Wednesday will become a regular thing.More

I always get my coffee from here when valuing for Jefferys Auctions in this lovely Cornish town. Recently, Ashley prepared a superb brie & chutney roll with a salad garnish drizzled with dressing as a lunchtime treat. I have no hesitation in recommending the shop...& café.More
