This is our first time in Penzance and know this restaurant by a suggestion. My friend ordered Lasagna. It is in a big portion and lovely taste. My order is chicken coronation fresh garlic salad. It was superb. The service guy who has a deadlock hairstyle is very nice and friendly. Strongly recommend.

Had the pear-amaretto-pie here though my partner said it might be a mismatch. Went back the next day to have a second piece of the same cake. Delicious, though all the pies looked great. Cosy quiet urban coffee-place with a mixed crowd, great place to read your paper. Pity we only found about about the place in the middle of... More

This little bistro is just fantastic: I wish it was around the corner of my home. They serve only breakfast and lunch and they're closed for dinner. They serve freshly cooked food, generous portions with fresh ingredients. They have a huge variety of dishes and drinks as well. The service is outstanding. The atmosphere is so relaxing: you fell like... More

Having been recommended to go to The Honey Pot, my lunch was not as good as I had expected ...my ham salad consisted of 2 slices of ham and mound of leaves, and as a special potato salad. Not a tomato or slice of cucumber in sight, just leaves. The service was friendly and we were served promptly.

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
