“Archie Browns Bread Street Penzance”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Hmmm... Archie Browns appears to be loosing its touch. 2 vegan breakfast please at £6.75 a pop. We were happy to pay that. However, the kitchen had run out of vegan bacon ( the most expensive element on the plate) which is not problem at all as long as that was reflected in the bill. We received the bill with no reduction, that was not the deal. We were then told we had been giving an extra sausage ( no laughing ) we had not and really didn't fancy an extra sausage ( I can hear you ) I very politely asked for an adjustment to the bill and the lovely waitress asked the appropriate person in the kitchen what she should do and she was told to just bung us a £1.00 refund ! Lovely waitress LEAVE Archie Browns their ethics aren't all they are cracked up to be ! Though I suspect you already know that.

“A Cosy Bolthole!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Friends and I often meet at Archie Browns for a snack, light lunch or just a cup of coffee. The coffee is really good and very reasonable and I love the fact that you can get a second cup for less! They are most welcoming and don't seem to mind friends chatting forever over coffee!

I often eat here for lunch with friends or family. It's so different from other places - relaxed atmosphere and lovely staff and the food is always delicious.

We love Archie's, have been out of the country for two years and it was the first visit we made.

Great food, great service and fresh, fresh, fresh!

Wish they had an Archie's in Abu Dhabi
