“Fabulous!”
Review of Cornucopia

Cornucopia
Ranked #9 of 27 Restaurants in Harleston
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Really lovely tea rooms, bar and vintage collectibles all under one roof. An essential place to visit for a relaxing drink or for afternoon tea when visiting Harleston, or worth visiting Harleston just to go to Cornucopia itself. The advertised "High Tea" is great value for money offering a generous cup of your choice from an array of various teas along with a sandwich, scone and cake! All come quaintly presented on a traditional cake stand in fitting with the amazing vintage decor. Altogether a great atmosphere, I would and will highly recommend to others.

Cornucopia is a small tea rooms The Parlour Tea Rooms within the new antiques and collectibles centre in the exchange! The tea room surrounds you with a nostalgic trip down memory lane as well as friendly staff and lovely light lunch yes and afternoon tea. More than just a tea room. Just like your grannys house! Amazing surroundings!

Enjoy the most fab cheese on toast or tea & cake in cute vintage surroundings, or something stronger in the lovely bygones bar.........then take your pick of the interesting and well-priced "cornucopia" of vintage treasures. A little gem in this lovely old market town and well worth a visit.

I came here with my Mum for lunch recently and was a little disappointed. We ordered a salmon sandwich each, which the menu stated came with crisps and salad. It did, but unfortunately the crisps were Cheese & Onion flavour which my Mum doesn't eat - I would have expected it to be specified on the menu if the crisps weren't the typical Ready Salted flavour and when we asked about it were told that they got a selection of packets of crisps and emptied them into a big bowl which they then used (this seems a little odd to me). Another small disappointment was that, although my sandwich was on lovely bread with a good amount of salmon, it also seemed to be rather thickly spread with margarine (I would have expected butter). I would come here again but I think next time will try the home made soup. Lunch was reasonably priced but the service did seem to be a little unenthusiastic.

This was a happy discovery today when visiting Harleston for shoes. A happy wander after a visit to the charity shops and then a wander around the town to discover this Alladins cave of vintage and antique items.

It's arranged like an old fashioned Victorian arcade, with lts of different sellers putting together little collections of antiques and vintage clothes and linen. Some beautiful vintage clothes to be found towards the back and up stairs there is a record playing sending out some music that hits that nostalgia button for all. There is a section with some organic soaps and various beauty products up stairs - as well very handily a wooden nail brush- and some curtains and cushions.

At the back downstairs is a cafe with furniture from the past - and yes it is mismatched and all the better for that - where you can sit an order cake and tea or coffee or tea. Lunch is also available which is something I will return at a later date to explore.

There was even an Elizabethan Gluten free cake - which is great to find - to go with the coffee.

Well worth a visit and it would be interesting to visit the bar at a later date.

If you have visitors this would be a good place to visit.
