This cafe is definitely one of our favourites in Palmy, a huge range of food to choose from whether it be from the cabinets or the menu and coffee is usually spot on.

I went here for the first time last week with a friend. The service was good and the coffee delicious. I had heard good things about Rumour Has It, I'm pleased to confirm they were all true.

We stop in here whenever in palmy. You can always be sure to get a delicious coffee and the pies are amazing, really scrummy filling and really the yummiest pastry!! The slices are scrummy. The cafe is always busy which must be a good sign! Thanks rumour has it!

Called in for a quick lunch while in Palmy shoping. It was a great choice for the family. Good options that were not expensive. Good service even though it was a very busy Saturday. Will come back.
