We came to this cafe for lunch and it was lovely. The food was really nice, especially as we were sheltering from the rain.

I just happened in to this place after our tour guide had said they have the best coffee in town. I was there around Noon on a Friday. The menu has a nice variety of choices from short orders to full meals. I chose to have their beef and onion pasty that came so fresh and flaky; and the best... More

Lovely owner, lovely place. We went in as we had walked through town and this little place drew our attention again and again and decided to walk in for a coffee. When we got the menu we decided we wanted food as well as it looked lovely. A chicken burger with chips and salad was ordered and the chocolate fudge... More

After a long walk from Boscastle we needed some rest and had to wait for the bus. We were surprised with very friendly service, good food and excellent cafe. We felt really welcomed.
