We visited yesterday with our two young children. We would normally have lunch in a pub however thought we'd opt for a cafe this time and this is where we ended up. The veggie stew was great and both our children finished the soup which they are normally not huge fans of. The coffee here was just ok - I've... More

Had a light lunch here with my wife whilst visiting Fowey. What can I say, great coffee, great food at fair prices.

This is a great little cafe, can get busy, but worth... More

I understand that all restaurants and takeaways have to have... More

Wet November morning in Fowey, limited places open for breakfast. Service OK and polite. Coffee ordinary, Toast & scrambled eggs OK. Need to do something about air extraction as really over-powering cooking smells from open kitchen downstairs.

Brilliant for takeaway beverages and very good for light bites. Pleasant staff, extra seating and tables upstairs. Ciabattas were tasty and delicious. Well worth a visit.

Had breakfast, I ordered the bacon maple syrup pancakes with extra hash browns - I recommend! My husband had the large cooked breakfast, we were surprised how cheap the bill came to which is always a plus. Good music too.
