Helpful and Friendly Cafe

Dog friendly establishment close to the rail station. The fayre was varied with good portion size, except the size of cups offered for the Latte.

A very pleasant place, welcoming staff, good service. It was lovely to sit, enjoying the sun, and blue sky, during a time of year when we have had little of either. It was a lovely end to a good brisk walk along the prom to Newlyn and back. The tea was very pleasant. Unfortunately, the teapot is designed in such... More

We stopped here for a cuppa after a walk round Penzance and were not disappointed. We succumbed to a cream tea and sat outside in the sun watching the world go by. The tea is real tea, no t-bags and the coffee was good to, just relax and enjoy.

We had two pasties and two beers for £17 which seems a bit steep unless you're paying for the seafront location (which is likely). Pasty filling was good, but crust was soggy. Staff was a bit unfriendly too, surprisingly.

After discovering my lost keys had been handed in there, we decided to stay and sample a large cappuccino and a sandwich. The food and drink did not disappoint along with seating outside it was all superb for us. The manager was super helpful and went out of his way to help us relax after a traumatic experience.

Tea in a big pot, made with real tea not teabags. We had king prawn sandwiches and were astonished by the amount of prawns used. Delicious and good value.
