I visited Mr Billy’s a few times in the last week of September and found it outstanding each time. Their Americano coffee is delicious, and I can honestly say that the bacon sandwich I was served was the best I’d ever had. The staff were...More

So love Mr Billy's. Best cafe in Penzance in my opinion. We'd certainly love something like it "up country" where we are. A great place to relax with a coffee and while away a bit of time. Especially if you can get the seats at...More

Thank you for this lovely review, yes if only the frontage was bigger, it is a listed building with a lot of history though.

What a charming cafe near an interesting art quarter of the town. This cafe was located in a beautiful building and specialised in selling specialist teas and coffees as well as serving lovely freshly made food.

Visited Penzance, found this quaint cafe and decided to make it our lunch time visit. We comprised of seven children (10-16) and three adults. The cafe is a little deceptive, rather quirky odd shape, narrowing to the front window, and art nouveau at the facade,...More

We love coming to Mr Billy's for brunch. I have enjoyed the soup on many occasions but my son loves the pancakes. My husband always chooses a salad from the seemingly unending choice, which alternates regularly. The staff are lovely, giving you time to peruse...More

Much bigger than it looks from the outside. Good bread, breakfast and service. We liked the collection of teapots too. Recommended.

We had been directed here by another which was just closing but despite accurate directions we walked past it 3 times! However it is a lovely relaxed place and made two excellent crab sandwiches for our onward journey.
