Chanced upon the cafe whilst rather hungover. What a perfect cure for a fuzzy head! A lovely little spot just off the main drag offering freshly cooked to order food and lovely veggie no frills, all day brekkies. Fast, attentive and friendly service. Recommended.

On a short break with my wife and as per usual we headed for this great little cafe. Full English (8 items) for me, as tasty and filling as always and a lovely chicken salad for my wife. The best breakfast in town!

For years I have been meaning to drop into The Rumbling Tum for a bite to eat but never got round to it. This week I went and am so glad I did. Its small inside but they have lots of tables and you are sitting quite close to other tables but its not too close. I ordered the all... More

A small cafe, just off Church Street, in a quiet back alley. Visited on a Saturday lunch time, although pretty busy greeted by a smiling member of staff, food delivered swiftly to the table & freshly cooked. We ordered a couple of hickory chicken breasts (x 2) with all of the trimmings topped with cheese & bacon, good portion sizes,... More

Everything you would expect from a small cafe serving cooked breakfasts and sandwiches. The two female staff were lovely and the food was nice. I would come back again :)

We had walked past quite a few cafes serving burgers and other fast-food offerings and were beginning to give up hope of finding anywhere we could eat when we accidentally spotted this place down steps in a little side street. Wandered down feeling rather pessimistic, and were so glad we did. They offer all-day breakfasts, omelettes, jacket potatoes and salads,... More

I always choose the Rumbling Tum when in Falmouth. Small, friendly, relaxed, good quality, good value, good menu range, proprietors with lovely personality. No gimmicks - just genuinely a pleasure to eat and drink there. Top quality tea and coffee. My teenage grandchildren enjoy a visit there too. All tastes catered for, and vegetarian options.

We came in very hungover on a Saturday (afternoon!) and had a very decent fry up where you pick the number of items you want and pay a set price of around £1 an item (min £5). The quality of the meaty items were brilliant but this means a handmade sausage costs the same as one catering pack hash brown,... More

My wife and I have been visiting Falmouth regularly for 6/7 years and we have ate at a number of eateries in the town but always come back to the "Rumbling Tum" for the best brekkie around. A little alley off the main street that could easily be missed, a little small inside but always clean and inviting, the girls... More
