We have been here a few times for breakfast and its always very well cooked and tasty, all for a reasonable price and friendly service. There is a good selection of coffees and teas and breakfast is served all day. Only drawback really is lack of WiFi and a poor mobile signal probably due to its location. Other than that... More

We stopped for a cup of tea and a toasted teacake. Very quiet as it was Jan 3rd. Small cafe that serves all day breakfast among other meals and snacks.

Lovely little tucked away cafe. We stumbled across it when visiting Falmouth for the day. Had two coffees each, my son had an Oreo milkshake ( he loved it) big breakfasts (x2) and a yummy panini. All served by a lovely waitress who was very smiley and helpful. Such a reasonable price I thought they had made a mistake -... More

Hubby spotted this as it was down a little alley and could have been easily missed, another review mentioned it felt chacterless and I have to agree, it didn't have a homely feel, I jus remember white walls in this little seating area. We decided to have lunch, I had a salad which had a variety of leaves and had... More

After arriving in Falmouth after a long journey we were looking for somewhere for a quick cup of tea and a cake . The first place we came across was the Rumbling Tum Cafe , down a little alley . The tea and cake were fine but the surroundings were characterless and basic - the building has so much potential... More

We both chose lasagnes and they arrived with garlic bread and salad and were very tasty. Staff were very friendly. The café was down a little alley and could be missed.
