Description: The Lost & Found Cafe & Vintage Shop TUES - FRI... 9.30 Am til 5.30 Pm SAT 10 am til 5.30 Pm We are tucked away of the ground floor of a beautiful Georgian House. We are half way down the historic Chapel street and in our opinion well worth a find! Set over 3 cosy rooms, you can nestle yourself at one of our vintage tables, browse our huge cookery book selection, whilst drinking a pot of love tea, kept warm by a granny made tea cosy. We have a 'creation station' for kids, books to read, craft & vintage magazines, knitting... For people that like knitting, a vintage shop, tons of stuff! We have a small breakfast menu, scrambled eggs / toast / homemade granola etc served til 11.30 Am and lunch is served 12pm til 3pm. Everything is homemade on the premises, using fresh local ingredients. We serve sandwiches, huge salads, home-made soup, hot homity pies and more. Wash it down with a glass of wine, a coffee or maybe some rose lemonade. If you have any room left try a piece of homemade cake from our cake dresser, you can have cake at any time of day. Because cake is very important.

“Great location for this charming tea room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

went there with my partner after a windswept day on the sea front and we were immediately won over by the warm welcome and tasty treats on offer.
It's in an excellent location with 2 large rooms for dining and another filled with Vintage treasures to browse, along with quirky artwork on the walls and soothing music in the background.
The food is freshly prepared daily and caters for a simple, mainly vegetarian, palate. I had the Swiss Onion Soup - which came with a giant cheesy crouton. It really hit the spot and the cake for afters was the best!
We had such a nice time, we went back for more the next day.
Can't wait to visit Penzance again!

“Worth seeking out the Lost & Found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2013

This is a great quirky coffee shop and cafe combined with gallery and books and crafty stuff. We had coffee and cake, a long black expresso and a short cappucino both just right, partner said the "Ginger and Guinness" cake was fab and my slice of banana and pecan loaf was delicious. This was our second visit in a month - haven't tried the soup or lunch yet but it always sounds great. There are a couple of different rooms with shabby chic decor and lots to look at and read (including the daily papers), it is located about halfway down Chapel street and easy to miss but definitely worth seeking out!

“Tasty meals, Good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

Exceptionally tasty meals enjoyed by 3 adults, one child - everyone liked their meals.
I had one of the daily specials; a warm leek fritter served with 2 salads (with different dressings!) naan bread and freshly prepared raita, followed by chocolate mousse cake, all delicious.
There is a fixed menu and a specials board.
Good atmosphere, tasteful decor - a restful escape from Penzance Christmas shopping!
Well recommended. I will certainly return when I'm back in Cornwall!
