Great coffee!

Great coffee and friendly staff! Best coffee I have had this holiday. Fantastic place to sit and take a break for lunch with a really good panini. And did I mention the coffee.....

We were recently in Penzance during the Golowan festival. After wandering around the festivities for the afternoon we decided to stop at Drecklys and get my four year old an ice cream. We also wanted a couple of pasties and coffee for ourselves. After purchasing the ice cream, we were told we would need to go inside for the pasties.... More

Popped in to ask if they had gluten free bread but as with most places the answer was no. Upon leaving a customer said they serve the best coffee around. I returned half hour later, with my own bread! No problem with using my bread and I ordered a bacon and egg sandwich. Crammed with bacon and scrabbled egg it... More

We have visited Drecklys on a number of occasions over the last two years, for drinks, snack lunches and evening meals. The food has always been good and the service excellent. From the very first visit we were made to feel totally at home and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent. Highly recommended.

We visited at least 8 food places in Cornwall and I would rate this as the lowest for my stay. Simple things like the out of the packet coleslaw made the ploughman's lunch basic.

Just stopped here for a quick refresh. Coffee and teas. The tea was real tea, leaves and all and the coffee was pretty good too. The place looked really nice and the staff seemed very friendly.

We plumped for Dreckly's on a whim and were glad we did. The menu is fairly simple but you can mix and match sandwich fillings which is a good feature. We had jacket potatoes, sandwiches and toasties and were pretty impressed with the quality and the presentation. The side salads were a bit more interesting than the usual lettuce leaves... More

After a long walk on a hot sunny day we needed a little refreshment + decided to give this place a try. I'm glad we did. We had a drink, a panini + a cream tea. The scones were freshly baked + delicious. The service was great as we had 2 dogs with us + they brought them a water... More

We were passing and I suddenly developed a need for a traditional Cornish Pasty (as you do). The pasty I had was very nice even though it had been reheated in the microwave. It was served with a small side salad which really wasn't necessary and the proprietors would be better leaving it off and saving some money. My wife... More

We have been here twice in a week for a bite to eat in the afternoon. Decent price for cream tea along with a panini did just the trick. Really nice fresh food.
