Firstly it must be said that the views are spectacular. The car park is within 10m. Service is efficient and friendly. Afternoon tea is wonderful, warm large scones with clotted cream.

Found this place while walking around Mousehole. Stunning views from this quirky cafe. Great venue to enjoy an amazing array of delights. We tried them all, breakfast, hearty soups, crab sandwiches, coffee and cake, milkshakes and the most unique hot chocolates that are a must!

Chanced upon this little cafe when we walked along the sea defense wall from Mousehole. Hubby said he had noticed it from the road as we entered Mousehole by bus. Probably gets missed by a lot of people as not in the centre of Mousehole....More

Perfect place to sit and watch the sea. A lovely spot to enjoy a cuppa and a slice of homemade cake. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Mousehole.

The menu was very small but everything we all ordered was great and what a fantastic setting. This will definitely become a part of our future holidays to west Penwith.

A really nice cafe with a view and excellent coffee and choice of cakes. There was a choose of several slices or cupcakes. The service was wonderful and was supported by the view.

Great spot tucked off the end of the car park overlooking Mounts Bay. Crab sandwiches to die for with interesting cocktails.
