Great friendly local service, couldn't have been more helpful, food was lively and the best hot chocco around! Pleasant atmosphere in a lively cornish town setting! Will be visiting again.

Stopped for a snack and had a very good bacon bap, reasonably priced. We have been before and will come back again.

Two hungry hikers arrived for lunch after a long wet hike. Nicely warmed up with a delicious home made sweet potato and chilli soup at the Cove. Comfortable and friendly cafe. Extensive menu.

One visit only with my family, my order was taken by owner at till, it never arrived at all. Water knocked over by staff. Potatoes on two orders were green and off. Removed by owner and after another wait, an alternative order given. Utterly appalling experience that we will never repeat. Never said goodbye, sorry or anything as they clearly... More

Cheery welcome. Good cup of tea, tasty scone and nice coffee cake. Decor a bit tired - could do with refurbishment. Clean, modern toilet though.

Every year we pop in to this little cafe and every time we receive great service with a smile. Great coffee mocha and when we do eat they always make sure the service and food is great. Once we asked for bacon rolls and they had no bacon, so they ran across to the butchers to buy some, with service... More

Stylish cafe bistro with a cake counter to tempt and savory food options just right for a light bite lunch or good breakfast. Well presented with indoor, window and outdoor pavement seating. Situated on the main road through the village it can suffer from traffic noise if seated outside but no such problem inside where their selection of soulful summer... More
