I really wanted to go to the cafe because it was number 1 on Trip Advisor in Penzance and we were staying a stone throw away. The overall look of the cafe does have a great vintage feel, it doubles up a shop and they have some nice items for sale, also some strange items on show including old black and white naturist magazines! The hot chocolate I had was very good. The girls had cream tea, they had to wait a while as the clotted cream was frozen so the staff had to fetch some more. It was good but the scones were no way near as good as the ones we had a couple of days before in St Ives which had been warmed up. I ordered the chocolate pear cake, despite being within arms reach of the cakes on display, there was a sign saying do not help yourself. I was left sitting there dribbling for 10 minutes before they realised that they had forgotten to serve me my cake. It was a good combination but the cake was pretty dry so a massive disappointment. It's a nice quirky place but in my opinion is not worthy of a number 1 place. Take away the the vintage theme and shop and you are left with a very average cafe.
