Ranked #260 of 526 Restaurants in Plymouth
Cuisines: British
Description: A novelty that has taken off in the historic Barbican area of Plymouth UK and proved to be an almost cult haunt for locals and tourists looking for a dainty trad tea shop. St Luke's Hospice is an entirely independent hospice serving Plymouth West Devon and South East Cornwall. It is enormously popular and respected. It operates thirty charity shops in the immediate area several which are specialist bookshops and others clothing or furniture. Some sell coffee but the new shop in two units of the mostly early nineteenth century Southside Street was set up about eight months ago as an antique and bookshop with half given over to a tea shop exploiting the old building and stock. It has an authentic feel and has become busy most of the time to the point of occasional queues. Worth a Tripadvisor listing.

“Good new Barbican option for traditional tea and snacks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

Open just a few months this place has established itself quickly as a friendly relaxed choice. Two adjacent shops in an early Victorian terrace have been put together by the largest local hospice charity to combine a sales outlet for antique and older style furniture and curios together with a good many books. It makes for an attractive peaceful and easy going traditional setting for tea coffee cold drinks, cakes and a lot more. Its caught on and deserves to continue to thrive. Staff are volunteers, all profits to an excellent cause.
