This is a great little place and in a good spot for passing trade but closes at 4pm. Plenty of people coming in at quarter to and only able to get what was on show which was enough to keep going for at least another hour. Be flexible, please people and make money.

This is a lovely quaint coffee house with some of the best cream scones in Cornwall. Always a happy visit here.

What a treat to discover this lovely little Cafe and coffee house. This was our third visit and we wer'nt disappointed, brilliant food, excellent service and value for money… Only downside was the toilet is outside and not in a good state of repair! But I would still recommend this consistently excellent coffee house…

Splendid little coffee shop. Staff are always chatty and friendly - can guarantee that apart from the excellent coffee, you will always come out of Charlie's smiling! That's what coffee shops are all about!

The food is delicious in this Coffee house. Menu has a selection of sandwiches and what a variety! I loved my chilli chicken sandwich , good portion and very tasty. The three tier cake vanilla, caramel and chocolate was absolutely divine. I didn't get a chance to taste the cream tea but will definitely visit this lovely place if I... More

Was busy when we went so had to wait for a table but worth it. Very nice cream tea. Good atmosphere and good selection of cakes and sandwiches.

Visited with my 5 year old son one sunny afternoon. We were both very impressed at the lovely service and the smartie topped biscuit he had. Really clean and well maintained. We need to become regulars in the school holidays.

Popped in here the other day and had the lemon sponge. So often cakes in cafes look better than they actually taste. Not this time! I'd still be there if we'd had more time. Friendly staff too, and good tea/coffee. A bit pricey but who cares when it's this nice. Perfect pit stop.
