I met a friend for coffee and we sat on really comfortable settees and nattered for over an hour. I liked the fact nobody disturbed us and it felt homely. One friend left and another arrived and we both had quiche and salad from the specials lunch menu. Really enjoyed it particularly as the quiche had been warmed up. This... More

I've eaten here several times now for a quick lunch and I've always gone for the simple salad option. Mainly because it's great value, constantly changing, I don't think I've had the same meal twice despite this. Staff are friendly and curteous. Food is fresh, and as I said good value. Highly recommended for a lunch time. And in the... More

We stopped here for lunch as we had been before when in Truro. The sandwiches are brilliant, served with crisps and salad, made with thick fresh bread. The atmosphere and service are very good, we will be back !

I ordered a Cheddar Cheese and Ham Quiche which had a pastry crust which I found to be light and delicious. It was served warm with a side salad,... More

Despite an ideal situation, the cafe is now looking tired and in desperate need of an up-date. We stopped there on Friday lunchtime, 26th September, and ordered soup and a pot of tea. 20 mins later we were still waiting, even though the soup was simmering away on the counter in full view when we arrived. When it eventually arrived,... More

Charged us extra for butter and jam to accompany a scone. Coffee was nice (Origin) but large one was more of a small medium if you are used to Costa or Starbucks. Would rate much higher if portions are more generous given the prices.

I have had 2 lunches and numerous coffees and cakes here and the food has always been delicious. Fresh, interesting ingredients and very pleasant staff. Lovely to be able to sit outside but also inside seating along. Very good value as well

It was very hot out and we had seen all there was to see next door in the museum so stopped off for a cold drink. There was a good choice and the prices were average. We were the only people upstairs and that was the only place that could seat a party of 6 all of the down stairs... More
