“Nice café”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Nice café, considering that there is not much competition :) The actual café is coused in what used to be the laundry-house and has an exhibition of island life in the past. The descriptions are on the wall (easily missed) to the left of the entrance.

“Great pasties”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Cornish steak pasties are large and very tasty. The staff were happy and helpful, the service was quick. Good range of drinks, coffee was very good. The views of Marazion from the windows and the outside seating area on a clear day are a delight.

“Nice cream tea but coffee lukewarm”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We had a nice cream tea between the two of us. Very tasty but our cappuccinos were lukewarm. They were from a machine so I'm guessing not much can be done to improve it.

“Icing on the cake.”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

I have reviewed the Mount (Castle in the air) and stated how wonderful it is to visit but the trip would be incomplete if you do not visit the Island Cafe the food is good and varied form the cooked meals menu to the sandwiches and cakes,( yum the cakes and cream teas), add to this the views from the window seats or the tables outside on the grassed area each one with vistas to please the eye.
Sit and drink different coffees and a range of teas buy a lovely tasty cornish ice cream from the little hut by the side and sit and watch the tide cover the causeway and the little fishing boats busy ferrying their passengers to and fro across the turquoise waters to the jettys in Marazion and back to the harbour on the Mount.
The walls in the cafe show photographs of days gone by and how the cafe use to look (a lot larger now than it use to be) and a lot more space for people to sit and enjoy their break but the staff ( even though they have changed over the last 20yrs of us visiting the Mount) are just as inviting and welcoming and helpful as they ever were when we first started visiting all those years ago.

“Friendly staff, good service”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Only had coffee, but it could have been a lot hotter! The cakes on display looked very appetising and prices quite reasonable.
