Popped in for coffee. Ordered one cappuccino and one large Americano. Cappuccino arrived badly slopped in saucer- no offer of clean saucer only a hand waived in the direction of thin paper napkins. Absolutely no taste of coffee whatsoever, and husband found his Americano equally lacking in any hint of coffee. Paying just under £5.00 for 2 coffees I would... More

The joy of living in Cornwall is getting to visit lots of lovely towns and explore the cafes and restaurants. This one tops our list of the best in Looe and by quite some margin. The team are so warm and welcoming and the decor and music make it wonderfully unique. We stopped in for lunch and had the most... More

Really nice place for afternoon tea, light lunch or morning coffee. We visited for lunch and found the choice of sandwiches and jacket potatoes and soup just what we wanted. I chose a toasted Brie and cranberry sandwich which was delicious and came with a good side salad. My husband has salami and Cornish blue which he said was good... More

Popped in for quick coffee on Sunday morning. Staff were really friendly, one guy had a Douglas Adams tshirt so you know he's cool! Anyway, the coffee was awesome! The cakes looked lovely, didn't partake on this occasion but will when I'm back in there next.

Stumbled across The Kitchenside Bakery on a day out in Looe. Lunch for myself, my partner and our son consisted of lovely handmade sandwiches and even our normally scatty dog was settled so this must be a relaxing place! Didn't partake myself but the cakes got very high praise from my family. Will definitely eat here again when back in... More

This cafe is an absolute gem. They do the best scones and their milkshakes are also delicious. Make sure you get there early as at peak times it's near enough impossible to get a table. Very worth the wait.
