I had a tasteless small cup of coffee and a very dry piece of what they call Bakewell Tart. It was awful and I was charged £4.60!

Were looking for a simple English Café meal and had planned to go to 'the Buttery' which was every so popular the last times we had visited. Sadly although the sign is there now a fancy Fish Restaurant, that was closed due to lack of booking- funny that. Never mind we had been to Lavenders before for a snack meal. Although they seemed to do what looked to be a simple menu mum had Cheese on Toast and I had the Ploughmans. Went for the 3 cheese to try some new cheeses, so had Yarg, Cornish Blue and Brie. Price was nearly £9 and did not have much salad, but Baguette, pickles etc were good and it was filling. Have had better presented and value Ploughmans at Ballantines (Barnstable) and at the Canal in Tiverton, but I guess part of the cost was the specialist cheese in this case. Would definitely use the Lavenders again when in Penzance. Had a nice selection of sweets and also selection of take away at the Deli Counter.

Advised by a couple of ladies to stop there for lunch as we were looking for somewhere in Penzance. They serve delicious home made pasties and crab sandwiches. Worth a stop if you are looking for real homemade food. The service is excellent and the staff so friendly and welcoming. The pies looked very appetising too!

A lovely range of local cheeses, biscuits to accompany, and a small cafe behind. I always spend more than I intend. Queues at lunchtime.

Quaint little bakery/delicatessen in Penzance, were told the pasties were amazing but we felt they were overpriced for what they were, they just didn't quite live up to their reputation but maybe it was a bad day, we had preordered but the staff seemed confused and didn't seem to be aware of the order, had some very nice cakes and the meringues in the coffee shop were amazing. Will give them another try as I say could have been just a bad day.
