Unique cafe on the road to the ferry car park. Good food and friendly staff, small inside but there is additional seating upstairs. We will certainly be back again.

Quirky little cafe. Great food, especially the warm scones and cornish cream. Not a lot of seats inside or outside but very warm and welcoming staff.

We stopped by for an afternoon treat at this lovely cafe. It's quirky, the staff are friendly and the baking tasty. Dogs are welcome too. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

Lovely dog friendly cafe up a narrow street towards the car ferry in Fowey. Great decor, tasty food and a warm Cornish welcome. Would definitely return.

Definitely different from your standard cafe, the owners retained the name from the original owner but have kept the eclectic decor and seating. Had a very nice cup of tea and piece of cake - The cake is made locally (off premises) and were very good indeed - Made by someone who knows had to make a great sponge. Very... More

Warm and inviting café with relaxing, colourful and comfortable interior. Felt more like someone's living room, than a café. Friendly with very good service. Excellent scone with jam, cream and two whole strawberries. The coffee was good too. Wasn't staying in Fowey so only visited once, but will definitely re-visit, when I'm in the area again.

Found this quirky cafe whilst tying to find some lunch and shelter from the rain. I cannot have dairy or yeast and both the owner and assistant took this on board, offering Oat cakes instead of bread to go with the lovely vegetarian pate and salad, they even checked when I ordered Ginger Beer and informed me that it had...

We popped in one morning in February when a shower passed, just for a cup of tea and a seat. Made welcome and comfortable. Feels very family oriented. Children very welcome. At a different time we would have taken more advantage of the menu (and cakes).

Great little cafe on the edge of town with a good homely feel.I don't understand "quirky" reviews as it's just a colourful friendly place and there's not a 'quirk' in sight. However, this little cafe is,in the main, catering for the passing tourist trade or the many wealthy second home owners in Fowey and is disproportionately expensive in my opinion.... More

The photo of the interior gives a pretty good impression of what you are in for atmosphere-wise - quirky, kitch and a fondness for running the whole of Elvis Presley's 'Fun in Acapulco' - mercifully without the sound. The staff were very helpful in sorting out a vegan salad for us - very fresh (despit it being Febriary) and fully... More
