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

Arrived at café and asked first if wifi available as needed to send off emails overseas. Was told yes and then ordered beverages. They were good but my iPhone wifi did not work. They all knew about it but did not bother to notify me until after order came through. One server did try to help (thank you young lady)... More

When we want lunch in Truro we almost always head for the Arts Cafe which is attached to the museum. Yesterday I had a selection of salads with ham and my wife had the sweet potato soup. Both meals were extremely good and provided excellent value (you get a 10% discount if you have a park and ride ticket). There... More

To our surprise a rather large area of seats, great little place to sit outside in the sun to relax with a delicious piece of cake and a coffee, we would recommend this place to anyone.

Great place for lunch or taking a coffee break whilst shopping in Truro. Bright and cheerful place with several rooms to choose from. We enjoyed lovely homemade quiche (cherry tomatoes, spring onion and Feta cheese Quiche) with a side salad for £6.95. The selection of 6 special salads ( different every day) looked very interesting; a plate of any (or... More
