Return visit at the children's request. Stopped by on a walk from Newlyn to Penzance. 3 excellent meals and drinks for less than £17. Sat outside with our doggy who was made very welcome. I can thoroughly recommend the fish bap.

Called here by chance today as the place we planned to go to for breakfast was closed, what a find! The food was quality, well cooked and excellent value. The fried bread was delicious, and the bacon cooked crispy just as we requested. The coffee was good and hot and the staff were welcoming, friendly and couldn't have been more... More

If you want a good cooked english this is the place for you. A great little cafe with friendly staff. Walking past and smelling it cooking is the hardest thing.

My wife and I consider Penzance our home away from home and this little cafe is always a first stop for breakfast. I have the larger portion full English and by wife has the smaller portion. Both are always lovely. The tea is nice and strong and hot. Prices very fair and the view across the harbour are a bonus.

the fish and chips here are fantastic,but beware of the seagulls they will swoop down on your meal if you leave it unatended,but you can eat inside,but you are right on the side of the harbour if you eat outside ,we will call again next year.

This cafe is in a lovely location. We sat outside and enjoyed watching all the comings and goings. Coffee is delicious and ideal for a mid morning stop. Service is always good, friendly and efficient.
