Just a coffee but ...........

what a coffee. One of the best I've had in a long time. Actually the best since I last had one at Brown Sugar. Can't believe I managed to resist the gorgeous lemon drizzle cake on display.

The coffee is superb. "The Big One" breakfast is a must have and one of the best breakfast I've had bar none. Proper Job! The staff are lovely. Hazel, Bianca and Tania are great.

Very friendly and welcoming staff and I think they seem to have a lot of regulars but the coffee was tasteless, sorry.

Real Coffee as we know it. Our coffee beans are roasted just down the road in Helston by Origin coffee who are an award winning coffee company. They are much closer than most, meaning we get a freshly roasted bean. Our coffee beans are ground fresh to your order, by our trained barista staff. They then take the 2-2.5oz of... More

We asked a young lady in The ship where we could get a good coffee and to our joy she was from new Zealand - so obviously would know how coffee should be made. brown Sugar was her choice - Thank you! Delicious coffee, home baking and snacks.

We retreated to this small and inviting café after a long and wet morning walk. We loved it. The food is freshly made and beautifully presented; the service is excellent. Eating here felt almost like being at home. Tables downstairs and up are close to the windows so we enjoyed watching folk go by as we treated outselves to tasty... More

We dropped in here as a couple one afternoon for some cream tea after seeing it advertised for £4.75 outside (pot of tea, two scones, clotted cream and jam). The cream tea was tasty, the decor was quirky inside and the staff were friendly and chatty. The only downside is that we were charged £9.50 at the till! Not a... More

Had a lovely time here with my two girls last Thursday. Lovely little place, very cosy and relaxed. Sat upstairs and had drinks / cake as it was mid morning. Lovely ambience, have been there before and will definitely go back. Retro look which we all loved x

From the outside, Brown Sugar looks like a posh bistro, but inside it's quirky and modern. We sat upstairs and next to the daisy wallpaper which was really cool! We only stayed for coffee and cake, but that was fabulous (must try the lemon drizzle sponge). I'd definitely go back to try the food on the menu, it looked great.

Really enjoyed lunch here a few weeks ago. There's a great selection of food, cakes and drinks - all to an above average standard, extremely well priced. It's a touch small downstairs, but you can find more seating upstairs. It's perfect for a quick hot drink & cake. Service was very good: laid back and efficient. Can't wait to visit... More
