I popped in here with the family after a visit to the museum next door. The decor was lovely and it seemed very cosy. Since we were away, I decided to treat the family to a couple of Brownies to share. We don't usually have cakes. The bill was a tad eyebrow raising, but I figured that with cakes, that... More

Whilst walking around Polperro we came across this tea room and as the weather was still nice we sat at an outside table although there was seating inside too. You order and pay at the counter and they make your drinks. You add your own milk and sugar which ar available at a separate station. The tearoom is right next... More

Stopped off here for refreshments after a few hours walking around this charming village; we were just looking for a drink but could not resist the cakes - & they tasted as good as they looked!! The tearoom is very small, although there are some tables outside, but is placed right above the harbour so is really nicely situated for... More

Frequently popped in for a lovely morning latte sitting in the sun, what could be better. Well lunch, actually - my partner had home made soup which was great, I had home made mackerel pate with toast, I have to say Thanks as this was the best mackerel pate I have ever eaten, beautiful. Staff and service was great too,... More

harbour side tea room with the added attraction of having a museum on site. Whilst we didn't have any food on our visit what came out for other people looked absolutely stunning. The sandwiches were packed and the cakes looked home made and totally delicious. Heard people around me say that they were excellent!

We found ourselves heading into Mevagissey on the only really wet day of our Cornwall holiday. And when we hit the harbour the heavens did really open. Across the harbour I spotted the banners for the Museum Tea Room, so we dashed through the narrow streets to get some shelter and that oh so important cup of tea. The cafe... More

What more can I say! fantastic cake, lovely cup of tea and a fantastic location. The only down side was that we had to sit on the benches rather than a table. Would visit again.

We had a hot chocolate here with great views of harbour. A good spot to relax. Recommended to have a beverage here.

Tea and Lemon Drizzle cake both were amazing! A nice mug full of tea, and the most delicious lemon drizzle cake I've ever tasted! Only regret was getting one piece to share with my partner!!

The tearooms became my "spot" in Polperro. I enjoyed brunch there on a daily basis and can heartily recommend the smoked mackerel pate and toast. The bbq night was suggested by a local as something to try and they were right to tell us to try it. The staff are brilliant and attentive without being over bearing and the views... More
