“A very good old-fashioned greasy spoon”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Not the place for a fancy cupcake and frothy italian coffee, but a very good old style café. Good food, friendly service, very reasonable prices make this a top choice for lunch in Redruth

“Great”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is a good old "greasy spoon" style cafe. With normal, honest people working there and from what I can tell it is a family business so the staff care about the service they give and the food that it served.

It is all home made as well as being cheap and cheerful. I don't mean this in a detrimental way, it is good food for a good price. They use "doorstop" bread for their bacon sarnies, which is always going to be a winner with me.

I try to eat there at least once a week for a cuppa and sarnie before college and it is always pretty much full, which proves that it is popular with the locals.

If you're ever in Redruth and fancy a nice post-hangover fry up, or just a chat over a coffee, then I thoroughly recommend visiting this place

“Another delighted customer”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I tend to eat at the Market Way cafe at least once a week, it is such good value. Last week an elderly lady (a regular whom I recognised but did not really know) asked me if I knew what the 'Trip Advisor' sticker in the doorway referred to - so I told her. She immediately asked me to post a review on her behalf as she didn't have access to the internet. Her name is Marianne Phaby and she thinks the Market Way cafe in Redruth is about as close to heaven as you'll get in this world! I can't think of anything better to say!

“How do they do it?”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

A small cafe in a small shopping arcade with outside seats if required; a most unprepossessing venue in a town which has seen better times. But here you will find proper home-cooked fare at truly astounding prices. Nothing is too much trouble for these people;the menu is comprehensive, the ingredients fresh, all cooked on the premises and the value is unbeleivable. Where else can you get a traditional roast dinner with 5 different vegetables - all perfectly cooked - at £4.75? Or a home-made lasagne and fulsome salad (plus chips, if you want it!) for the same price? Add adessert - apple pie/crumble or rhubarb tart or trifle - that'll be 50p! - have a cup (mug,actually) of coffee - that's included!
You might say it's cheap and cheerful - the staff are certainly cheerful - but my verdict is it's just wonderful.
