We ate here twice today on our visit to Port Isaac, firstly we stopped off for a cream tea which was really nice & resonably priced, we then returned later in the day for a traditional Cornish pasty, again the food was lovely & well...More

Popped in for a cuppa and a scone. Cracking spot with nice views. Scones were so light and fluffy and sooo much cream and jam! Very friend people. Lovely little cafe.

We visited mid morning and had coffee and toasted tea cakes. Both very good. Lovely friendly cafe - the main food menu looked good and we’d happily return for more

Tiny tea room but hey I love this place. Scone was delicious. The carrot cake was wonderful and classic too. What else would you want when in Cornwall.
