As part of my job I quite often have to kill a little time between appointments or find somewhere to write up paperwork. This means I'm often every cafe's nightmare, a lone diner! Not so at the honeypot!! I'm always welcomed with a smile and they arrange my cakes, drinks and food around my sprawl of paper! The cafe is... More

The menu is very basic but the special board is where it's all happening. Varied and tasty I can always find something interesting to eat and enjoy. The cakes are also tough to resist. Definitely worth a visit

Lovely food, cant fault it, but a salad consists of just more than lettuce. Was disappointed to find just a lot of lettuce leaves on my plate, what happened to Tomatoes,onions ,cucumber etc. An expensive meal for what I got, 2 corn fritters and 3 potatoes and a plateful of lettuce leaves.

Stopped here after a walk around town..place was quiet but beautifully kept.. Had sublime coffee... Better than any you will find in your average high street coffee chain.. Both ordered a filled baguette for lunch.. We're fresh baked and filled with excellent Brie and homemade chutney.. Served with some very expertly dressed fresh salad leaves..not hurried out and left in... More

My wife and I visited twice during a recent visit to Penzance. Its a bit of a quirky place (reminding us a bit of our days in Berkeley California), but the coffee is great, and the baked goods are worth a detour.

After a bracing walk from Newlyn to Penzance on a stormy afternoon in early January we took refuge in the Honey Pot. We were revived with a delicious lunch of Vegetable curry with a distinctly South Indian flavour. The salad was beautifully fresh and I loved the dressing, the coffee was very good and the cakes, delicious! The service is... More

Just come back from Cornwall. Honey Pot food just lovely. Husband had Lamb Tagine with apricots and couscous - melted in the mouth. I had the lightest Lasagne I have ever tasted. What a cook!! Memorable food. Our second visit there and it won't be the last. Comfortable place, reasonable prices and everything looked delicious. Thanks Honey Pot.
