Stopped for lunch after a long walk. Very cosy/intimate! as the tables are close together and the cafe was busy. Ordered bagels and a bacon sandwich for my son....all very good. Pot of tea for two with tiny jug of milk...although sure we could have had more if we had asked. Good selection of retro toys for the kids to play with.

No toilets though......

We went to the Lifebuoy with a very active 2 year old and the owner couldn't be more accommodating or helpful, which for any parent is the only way to relax.

If you are in Fowey please pop in and try them for breakfast, coffee or afternoon cream tea/cake. All of it is great.

A real pleasure to visit. Quirky wall decorations capture the attention. Games on the tables to occupy while waiting for the excellent refreshments.
I think we were fortunate to visit at a non-busy time as the cafe is a little cramped, but well worth checking out while in Fowey.
