Liskeard on a Sunday lunchtime seemed to be a food-free zone until we came across this quirky and cheerful cafe crammed full of frog ornaments, some of which were hilariously tacky. The food was excellent - my home-made mushroom soup was particularly delicious, and so thick that the spoon almost stood up in it - and the prices were very reasonable. We were served by a friendly and efficient young man, who was evidently very fit too, as we later saw him running up the steep hill outside the cafe to try to catch a customer who had left her cardigan behind.
Most of the customers were locals, and many of them knew one another, so the owner's formula obviously works. There were ponytailed chaps in camo gear, some smartly dressed women of the 'Ladies Who Lunch' variety and a family whose young children were happily somersaulting over the furniture.
A minor quibble was that my milkshake turned out to be a proprietary version in a plastic container, which was ok but I had hoped for something home-made in a county (or nation?) with such a strong dairy tradition. Also, although the place was clean the table was rather sticky as was mentioned by a previous reviewer - perhaps time to use a different cleaning product? Nonetheless, a very pleasant experience and we would definitely drop by again the next time we are in the area.
