We were recommended to gov here by our hotel (Artist's Residence - another place I can recommend). The Honey Pot is small and very friendly. It has a coffee shop feel and also has super lunch meals. I really didn't want to leave but instead stay and have a desert and a coffee. I can highly recommend this!!

The quintessential Penzance coffee shop with great coffee and fantastic food. The specials menu changes daily and the basic menu offers delicious sandwiches etc. I come here for great coffee, nice atmosphere, and great lunches. What a shame they don't open in the evening! The salad dressing is so good I get a jar to take away!

A local recommended the Honey Pot to us as we were wandering around Penzance today. I've got to say it was a great recommendation. We stopped by not wanting either a cream tea or a full meal so we opted for sandwiches and salad. They were outstanding!!!! Great meal at a great price and the staff is welcoming and so... More

Haven't eaten here in ages but popped in for tea a week ago and were delighted to find it was exactly as we remembered it, lovely atmosphere, helped by the decor which is cosy without being twee. The staff were friendly if a little slow, but it was busy and it was possible that we snuck in without being noticed.... More

Whenever in penzance we try to include a trip to the lovely honeypot. Today I had a lovely Greek salad and sparkling elderflower cordial and my husband had a cheese baguette and flat white. The food and drink was delicious as always and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The only downside was that the salad was so filling I... More

I don't usually review cafe's but feel compelled to add my voice, mostly because I just ate ate at the Honey Pot and happened to order the same meal as FJS20, the feta tart. I have no complaints regarding either the portion size or the staff attitude! The food here is lovingly prepared to order,by a kitchen staff who obviously... More

Pretty much most lunch breaks I treat myself to a sandwich or baguette from the stunning range of options on offer always packed with freshly dressed salad, from The Honey Pot. The daily specials and the cakes….well just one look at the counter or the blackboard & you’ll stop dead in your tracks. At the weekend I seem to find... More

Two of us recently visited the Honeypot and have to agree with FJS20 (All lettuce, no substance). Our biggest gripe was lack of customer care, with staff seemingly more interested in holding their private conversations than attending to their paying customers. This created a bad atmosphere. The food itself was quite good, but portions were miserly. We will not return.... More

Dear Nigel S. I am absolutely devastated to read your review of what must have been an less than lovely trip to my café. I m deeply upset to read of the attitude of some of my staff, (not all were working that day) and apologise unreservedly for their treatment of your group. I was not present on the day... More
