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

We just love to go to the Arts Cafe. I find the outdoor seating one of the best in Truro during the summer. I especially recommend the yoghurt drinks they make. Overall just a good relaxed atmosphere. And afterwards we always have a stroll through the arts shop.

What a lovely place! Bright and airy, with interesting artwork displayed around you, this places offered a welcome break during a busy visit to Truro. The food was excellent, with generous portions, service was good, with helpful staff. The coffee wasn't great but I'm quite fussy when it comes to coffee, feel free to ignore! All in all, a good...

We were looking for somewhere for a light lunch and had a bit of time to spare. I had noted this on previous visits, but the pretty outside garden seating area looked so alluring in the sunshine, that we decided to give it a go. Wandered inside to admire the excellent art supplies shop and the indoor seating on various... More
