We dropped into this little cafe/bar for a quick lunch whilst holidaying in Cornwall but won't be returning. The food was okay but there was no flexibility in the menu and we found the member of staff taking our order to be unfriendly and unhelpful. My husband made a basic request to see if it was possible to have a... More

Sought this place out as a stop off point after seeing good reviews. Inside it is small, but plenty of outside seating in the gardens where we sat with our dog. Coffee (2 cappuccinos) was lovely - beautifully presented and not tasted good. Small selection of cakes were also lovely. Sadly our visit was brought to an abrupt end by... More

As the title say not great. In the past been here over the years, mainly for the coffee and good service. I live in Plymouth, but I will travel for a good coffee and customer service. Unfortunately drove down yesterday from Plymouth and the coffee was bitter and hot, the panini was ok, but the salad on the side was... More

It was pouring with rain when we arrived for a week in st agnes and we had decided to try this lovely little cafe that we pass every day on our way to the spas pub. It was a really good start to our holiday with beautiful fresh healthy shakes with unusual ish ingredients that I had not had before... More

We called in here for a cream tea - very tasty - it is something I feel you have to have when in Devon or Cornwall. Would definitely recommend the cream teas and the other food sounded good.

Set on the road leading from the village to the beech this cafe which is predominantly an outdoor venue is a welcoming pit stop. We only had Coffee but the service was good and there was a selection of savoury dishes and sweets available.

We found this little place on a walk down to Trevaunance Cove whilst staying in St Agnes. It's small inside but has some lovely outside seating in a sort of Japanese zen style garden on different levels. It was really different and quirky. The first visit was on a Sunday morning and bacon baps were being freshly cooked outside -... More

Good menu for breakfast and we ate their version of tapas last Friday. Really enjoyed it. Sat in the garden and had the nachos and the crab and avocado platter thingy. Recommended if it's warm and the sun is shining. Very friendly manager. Recommended for relaxing.

Was expecting something with a Japanese vibe from the logo and name. Stopped at lunchtime and in the absence of anything Japanese had a panini, which was doughy and came with a salad garnish without any dressing, and a few tortilla chips. Perhaps other times are better - breakfast choices look more interesting and I'd always be up for a... More

We stumbled on this place last year on our visit to St Agnes and it's now become a favourite haunt when we are anywhere near. Great for just a coffee and snack or cake, but also great food if you decide to stay for more. The menu is always interesting and it all looks delicious. We've had the Sunday morning... More

New cafe opened in May 2012 by a couple who aftere six years quit Japan following the earthquake and now opened a self-styled zen cafe offerinig great food all day with lovely gardens to chill out. Best cafe in St Agnes and well worth checking out.
