Dropped in for lunch on a wet and windy Saturday in Penzance. Brilliant view across the harbour watching an angry sea and enjoyed simple, tasty food. Fish pie was huge, although consisted mainly of salmon, but pleased a hungry husband! No pretensions to grandeur, just reasonably priced food. Good value.

Popped in for coffee but we were tempted by the bacon sandwich which was delicious. We asked for our bacon to be well done and it was. Good coffee and, of course, lovely view of the bay. Staff were friendly and attentive. Have eaten here often at lunchtime and at night - no complaints.

Wanted a good lunch and a good view, but only got the good view. We were told the food would take 15 min, but it took 25 minutes. The service was not very good. We could not get the waitresses' attention even when it came to pay the bill. There were not many customers so there seemed no reason for the delays. I had asked about the afternoon tea which was advertised inside and outside was told in fact it was not available, which in hindsight was fine as we would not be coming back.

We popped in for a bite to eat and were surprised at the good range of food and drink available. My wife had a very nice caeser salad and I had a delicious lemon sole and prawn risotto, the local fish was cooked perfectly. With amazing views of Mounts Bay and Penzance harbour and excellent service from the welcoming and friendly staff it is a place we will definitely be going back too.

We visited on a whim after we took a train ride to Penzance with our two year old (train mad!) when we realised we had over an hours wait to our train back we decided to explore the local shopping centre. Really pleased we did as we found this little gem! It was late morning so we just had drinks but the staff were extremely helpful and the hot chocolate was delicious! The views are spectacular if you can sit near a window. The whole café is decorated really pleasingly and is quite clearly an upmarket coffee house - but thankfully without the ridiculous over priced coffee costs! We will certainly return here when we are back in Cornwall later in the year!
