Coffee good, tried several visits before found a free table. Busy and not relaxing but coffee decent. Did have to wait a while for drinks to be delivered and tables not clean.

Coffee is just too wet without a cake to dry it off a tad. And here you'll get some of the most delicious gluten-free options I've ever tasted. If it's a bit crowded in the cafe area, which often it is, and it's a fine day, simply get a take-away and take it away to a church bench across the... More

Me and my brother went in here and immediately the staff were rude. It is a wifi cafe and we used the wifi and they were rude, scowled and rolled their eyes at us. Do not come here

Hi yes I remember you both ! You were the two boys that came in with cans of coke and sausage rolls that you brought from elsewhere and wanted to use the broadband ! We are not a wifi cafe , we provide free broadband to paying customers there is a big difference. My staff were not rude they simply... More

Lovely Welcome, excellent cake and generous portion size to boot. Lovely atmosphere, as well as watching the world go by right next to the beautiful Fowey church. A very tastefully decorated place, with a wide selection of goodies to choose from (savoury and sweet). Very attentive staff with a smile to boot. See you again soon.

I have never given such a low rating before but it sums up my experience. We visited for coffee only. On arrival we found a recently vacated table and sat down assuming that it would soon be cleared. We made eye contact with the person behind the counter who acknowledged us with a nod. When, after some time, there had... More

A great cafe in Fowey, lovely tea and cake, nice feel as you walk in. Also right across from the bus to get back to the Main Carpark

Right in the centre of town, near the shuttle bus set down point, this little coffee shop/ cafe is well worth a try of morning tea or lunch (or both). Great food selection - particularly the crab sandwich, great Flat White coffees and pleasure service. Appeared to be very popular.

We dropped in for coffee after lunch and a walk around Fowey. The flat white was nothing overly special, although to be fair we had had one earlier with lunch elsewhere and both find that a second coffee is almost always a disappointment.

Vege selection was very limited and all cheese based, which we should have read as a poor sign, and greasy when it came. Children loved smoothies. Did have to spend the time listening to 2 staff members bickering over things, which was tiresome when service was poor.
