A lovely place to have lunch, particularly if sat outside. The food is fresh tasting and refreshing. It's well worth having the tasting plate with a sample of all the different salads on offer. It's a steal at less than £7!

Whilst on holiday we took the park and ride bus into Truro and were dropped off outside the Arts cafe. We called in for a toasted teacake and latte - it was fabulous. Comfortable seating downstairs with 3 settees and comfy chairs plus seating at tables - seating upstairs too but we never went upstairs so can not comment. Teacakes... More

A lovely lunch on a hot summer's afternoon. Tea and quiche with salad both the ham and the vegetarian options were tasty. The service was good and the outdoor tables were in a pleasant sunny green area next to the street.

Lovely atmosphere and nice food. We ordered two food items, one arrived before the other. Had to remind them we had ordered more. Then there was a mix up because the brownie we ordered didn't come as it was stated on the menu. When we queried this they said there was another area where they had different brownies and that...

Another huge superb salad! Highly recommend! £22 for 2 big salads full of fresh and interesting ingredients served with Cornish ham and Brie and 2 drinks. Would have preferred more non bread or pastry options though...Please note!

First and last visit to this cafe. We arrived at approximately 4pm to be told that they were only serving drinks and cakes at that hr. Fair enough- no problem with that. We chose a small latte, small americano, a slice of carrot cake and lemon drizzle cake. Nearly £11! Have been served many times bigger portions for less price.... More

Our 2nd visit here having first been last year on a visit to Truro. We remembered the fruit scones , cream tea being particularly good and sure enough they were again. The adjacent museum and art gallery are worth a visit too but if you want a tea or coffee and cake in pleasant surroundings this is a good place... More
