Popped in to this stripped down cafe, informed that weren't cooking food, although someone ( local) who came in later was served. Coffee perfectly ok, cafe did smell a little fusty/ of cooking oil , but otherwise just ok.

I can't comment on the eat in cafe but ... We bought sandwiches and cake to takeaway for a walk along the coast path. We had BLT, ham and coleslaw, and bacon brie and cranberry sandwiches followed by apple cake and flapjack. It was all freshly made and delicious.

Nice friendly cafe! Nice staff! Good food and reasonably priced! Choose a tuna panini which was fresh and tasty. Hot and cold sandwiches as well as hot and cold drinks.

A fairly new place, I think, it is easy to find as you walk in from the various car parks. Interior is tastefully understated but comfortable. We enjoyed some good coffee here and noted it worthy of a return for a snack. Very pleasant.

Cute cafe...yummy paninis and crispy chips. Relaxing and friendly atmosphere. We played some games, had some nice drinks and enjoyed our lunch.

Called in for a quick lunch and had sausage, cheese and red onion panini which came with a side salad. The food was lovely, reasonably priced at £6.50. There was also a great selection of homemade cakes and biscuits. The staff were friendly and the cafe was spotlessly clean.

Popped in here on our last morning in mevagissey to grab a quick breakfast before our journey home. I've not been in before despite countless trips to meva and I have no idea how I passed it by! It's an adorable cafe and has such a lovely interior. It's bright and sunny and clean and plenty of cornish artwork on... More
