Found a little gem of a cafe today in Falmouth that serves all day breakfasts, burgers and more. It has the added bonus of being dog friendly. No silly slates or chip buckets here. Just down a few steps from the main street. Highly recommended.

We visit the Rumbling Tum frequently because we love that you can have a breakfast anytime of the day and also that you're able to pick the individual items you fancy.. It's always well cooked and tasty and the service is great.
