Tea and scones

Been wandering about, needed tea so went in. Cheerfully greeted and cream teas, with a huge helping of cream, arrived promptly. Soft fresh scones, decent brew and offered a top up for the tea pot. Lovely staff and value for money.

We went to Charlie's to try a cream tea. We thought as we were in Cornwall we must try one, it was lovely, the staff were really friendly. There was a wide range of cakes, which all looked homemade. Would definitely recommend it.

We live locally and always pop into Charlies when out for coffee. It has such a relaxed atmosphere, especially by the fire. The cakes are amazing, the only problem is choosing which one to have! The staff/owners are very friendly and welcoming and recognise returning customers. We will be in again soon for some more of your delicious cakes and... More

Charlestown is a favourite beauty spot but we're always on the hunt for a decent cappuccino. We need look no further. Charlie's does very good cappuccino and we spotted the majestic looking cakes on offer. A lovely cafe and if you can grab the outside seats, a pretty good view downhill to Charlestown harbour. We'll have cake next time!

Don't be put off by the outward appearance of this coffee shop/Cafe. Lovely coffee, sandwiches (open or closed) with a huge slice of fresh bread. Cakes, locally made are all superb. Not a lot of seating inside, but worth the effort.

I found this place by chance whilst on holiday and visiting Charlestown. I saw the scones through the window as I walked by. They looked so yummy I had to go in and have one. I wasn't disappointed. This was one of the prettiest coffee shops I've been in. So cosy and beautifully decorated. The cream tea I had was... More

Found by accident when visiting Charlestown as we parked on the road rather than pay and display and called in for coffee after looking around the town and before heading home to Somerset. Friendly young staff called out hello to everyone entering but took a while to come and take our order. Choice of coffees and cake, some homemade. Good... More
