“Lovely food and excellent service - well worth a visit”
Review of Poppins tea room

Poppins tea room
Ranked #8 of 13 Coffee & Tea in St Ives
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Found by happy accident in the rain in St Ives and looking for somewhere to get out of the wet. The cafe is to be found down a side alleyway off the main cobbles (just after the post office).

Cafe was very clean and brightly decoared. My mum, daughter and I initially had tea, hot chocolate and sandwiches - which were very fresh and my mum loved the use of the teapot and cups and saucers. We progressed to cream teas and some home made cake which again was fresh and delicious.

The staff were so friendly - we had our small dogs with us and they were very accomodating and even found a treat for them.

We were on holiday for a week in Cornwall and had many lunches and afternoon teas over the week - but this was far and away the best.

Lovely food, great service and a quiet quaint location - if you lucky enough to get the sun I am sure it would be very pleasant sat outside but an all round great cafe - seek it out

We were looking for somewhere with simple food and a good brew and this came up trumps. Even though the proprietor was off sick the daughter made us feel most welcome including a top up on the the enormous teapot. There are many pretentious places you can go in St Ives but simple is often best.
