We had been to Penlee House gallery and were cutting through the back streets to go to the Exchange and stopped at the honey-pot for lunch. What a breath of fresh air. We sat in a cosy corner- Good service- good choice of food - reasonable prices and we shall definitely go there again.!

On a dull, rainy day we spotted a range of tasty-looking cakes through the window and came inside. With a friendly welcome and a table by the window we decided to have lunch. Good decision! Homemade and very tasty, my choice was leek and goats' cheese tart with new potatoes. Husband's choice was lasagne with garlic bread. Excellent food, the... More

However this time we felt that there was poor value for money. we had a brie, bacon and cranberry baguette. the bacon was tiny pieces that looked as if it was the sort of bits you woudl buy in tescos for...

We came here following a recommendation from a friend and absolutely loved it. I am pining for a slice of homily pie and chutney as I type! Lovely fresh salads and generous helpings of everything, delicious range of food and lovely friendly cosy atmosphere. If I lived in Penzance I would slowly eat my way through everything on the menu.... More

Nice menu, good vegetarian options but very small, especially when the young mothers block everywhere with their prams and pushchairs.

A very filling lunch. Everything on the menu sounded delicious but we all 3 went for curry. Spicy and fresh ingredients presented well. Too full for a pudding we chose to share a portion of cake, this however was disappointingly sweet and dry. Maybe just a bad choice! I will definitely return when next in Penzance for food .

A very comfortable little place with quirky decoration, a great selection of tea and the amazing cinnamon toast with maple syrup!

Have been here a couple of times now and it gets better each time we go. The first time we visited we felt very slightly unwelcome as we were told to just sit anywhere as they'd had an extremely busy lunch. We were a bit put off y this however the service from then on was so friendly and helpful... More
