“Well worth finding”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This place is really quaint and tea how it used to taste before tea bags. A lovely view from the big window over the harbour so let's hope it will be open again soon so that others can appreciate it - only sorry we couldn't eat a cream tea.

“Great place!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We loved this place. Try to get the big table by the window - we played games while we waited for our cream teas which were delicious and very generous with nice presentation that tickled the kids. Very chilled place, would definitely return.

“Full of character, cream tea experience”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Not your traditional tea shop and the better for it. This cafe make afternoon tea an experience, from the decor, items for sale and vinyl record player, to the tea served in glass teapot with egg timer to brew to your taste. Thoroughly enjoyed the scones and cream too.

“Hidden gem in st Ives”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Lovely little coffee shop with a brilliant retro theme with 60s and 70s music being played on a vintage record player was a very nice touch. The coffee was very good and well priced the cakes looked amazing and I liked the vintage memorabilia that you could be in the shop aswell :-)

“Had coffee only but it was excellent”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Was in St Ives as a bit of a whistle stop tour of the cornwall coast. Came across this place and it is very unique and unusual inside. The place has so many quirky aspects but the one that was the surprise is the record player and album. Made to feel welcome from the minute arriving, saw many people having loose tea which looked great and the waitresses taking their time on how long best to leave it and how to pour it to get the best flavour. Took our order quickly, the flavour of the coffee was excellent. Good to get hot milk as well, served in a school milk bottle. Great place with what looked a great choice of cakes.
