Best working mans cafe around!! Been using this place for years and it gives consistent good value honest food! The weekend roasts are legendary!! The place is clean and tidy and the staff are friendly. It's a no frills place and all the better for it.

Good breakfast value for money and is on the table within minutes, the girls that work are marvalous and very welcoming if only the man that works there is gone and he lets the girls get on with it as he looks like he works in a slaughter house and has also got my order wrong a few times after...

Value for money, food is on your table in minutes and its not bad grub. This is a café though a traditional greasy spoon (not that any cutlery is greasy). Its just no frills, fry ups and chips, roast dinner, traditional puds and a nice mug of tea.

This has been a successful business for thirty years and more. On the fringe of the Cattedown light industrial area and also close to the main roads from the east into the city of Plymouth it offers an excellent all day menu and is very popular amongst a lot of tradesmen and visitors to the area. It features on national listings for blue collar fry up and sandwich bar. Given the several other listings already on Tripadvisor for this area, Curnow's well deserves an entry.
