They opened an hour later than advertised. And yes, we waited the full hour. There are no other coffee/scone alternatives in Polperro, so who could blame us? When they finally opened, the lady was rude and overcharged us. And to top it all off, the...scones weren’t even delicious! Take your custom elsewhere.More

We were looking for tea and scones at about 2.55 in Polperro. We headed hopefully to the Bean and Scone, having made a special trip. There was no indoor seating on a wet day, and only two small tables outside on a very busy street....We decided to keep looking. We came back about 1/2 hour later only to find they’d completely sold out of scones and cakes. We were astonished. What happened to tea at 4pm? We never got to try what looked like very good scones. The lady behind the counter was the friendliest lady we met in Polperro.More

This is a very tiny coffee stop which serves up great cakes sandwiches and panini also offering take out. We regularly stop in when visiting our relatives in the village and are always met with a warm welcome, delicious coffee and cakes including gluten free.

Lovely cream tea and very good value. Super welcome from the owner. Love the window seat with the open window. This place is the perfect stop off between the car park and the town!

Early morning, before the holiday rush, in need of a coffee and something tasty after a long drive you wend your way down the main drag into Polperro, and come across the bright blue, bold signs for Bean and Scone, a tea room with a...twist. Offering both inside and outside seating, you have choice of watching the world go by on the side of the busy street, or sitting in the cool interior admiring the artwork and photography of the locals. As the only customers, the owner (presumed) was more than happy to talk to us about life in Polperro; about the tourist season, the bleakness of the winter, and how the community came together to get through COVID. Definitely a lovely place to stop, before getting into the busyness of the harbour, where there are queues for every placeMore

Very helpful and caring staff. Cheerful and chatty staff. Lovely quick and tasty service. Paninis were wonderful - big enough for us to share at lunch time. Coffees and milk shakes were superb. We did buy scones every day - we would highly recommend the...Apple Scones. The gluten free scones were hard and we could not eat them. Dog friendly.More

Dropped in for paninis and tea, and so glad we did! A friendly welcome and quick service. It wasn't fancy food, but straight forward and tasty. Very happy!
