“Lovely food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Visited Penzance while on holiday and found this lovely Coffee Shop where we tried a Cornish Cream Tea. Scones were homemade and beautifully cooked, served with clotted cream,sumptuous Strawberry Preserve and fresh strawberries. Food was absolutely delightful and a full pot of very tasty tea each. Other diners were tucking into homemade pies served at lunchtime which looked delicious. Run by 5 young men who were very attentive, this is a real gem and well worth a visit.

Looking for a coffee or a bite to eat and you won't be disappointed in this place . Friendly fast service and very clean throughout.

Stopped in for a coffee and looked at the breakfast menu which looked nice .


If u are in Penzance then walk past the costa and head for this place

“Worth a Try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Stopped for a quick lunch and a drink. Decided on an organic burger, which came with chips and salad. Food was pretty good but not perfect (bacon not crispy). Would I go again - probably as it seems like the best place in town and there are plenty of options to tempt you. Service levels perhaps not all they could be - a smile doesn't cost anything! That said the lady who served me did what she needed.

“Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Have been to 'Waves' before and so went there for a drink while shopping. Service was prompt and reasonably friendly (ie. not over friendly but polite). Drinks served nicely. Would have liked teacakes to still be available at 3pm, but forgiven.
