Great sandwiches, great coffee, excellent service, clean modern surroundings worth a trip to Newlyn just to go there.

Very friendly staff/owners serving amongst a host of other things including the most wnonderful butties, their own take on a toastie (which has more the appearance of a huge fishcake).

Not only does Duke Street Cafe serve the best coffee in Newlyn, they also have the friendliest service.

Seems everything gets 5 stars these days...or 1 star. Well our experience was how would you say, more mediocre. It is true that you get large portions but that in itself is not a reason for 5 stars. The food took a long time to be served which again is no reason for 5 stars. If you have to sit outside you are overlooking a busy little car park and the refuse bins...5 stars err no. Those same tables looked as though they hadn't been cleaned all day never mind since the last person eat there, again not 5 stars. Prices £20 for two "sandwiches" and two cups of tea....definitely not 5 stars.

We felt it was right to respond to this review. The location of our cafe is something we cannot help. We didn't build it, nor can we relocate the council car park or the Co-Op's bins. Not every cafe in Cornwall has a sea view, we try very hard to make the outside and inside as nice as possible. Customers are always told, when it is busy, if there will be a wait for the food and you can decide not to place an order. The sandwiches (no inverted commas needed, they are actual sandwiches) range from £3 to £5.50 and a 4 cup pot of tea is £1.50. We received the top rating from our health and hygiene assessment, the cafe is extremely clean. We are very proud of our many 5 star reviews and we shouldn't be made to feel bad about them. Many thanks.

We enjoyed everything about Duke Street. The staff are friendly and very attractive. The food is flavoursome and in a healthy portion size. The cafe is clean and spacious. A hidden gem
