Came along Southside Street yesterday and noticed that there were no longer any tables in the cafe side and the the reference to cafe had been over painted on the shop sign. Sadly it appears that the catering side of this otherwise busy charity business...More

It's good charity shops can really raise money for their causes, sometimes this is high end prices but they have some lovely stuff. Some of the nicest staff in any shop out, passionate about their shop! Not sure they still have so much in the...More

We went once after it opened and it was OK, maybe a bit dark. Went back recently and we were the only customers mid afternoon on a busy Barbican Saturday. Nominal catering. A few elderly folk browsing the nick nacks and a sleepy feel. Bit...More

Standard tea and cake. But inside a charity shop for a hospice. Sit comfortably, drink and nibble. High percentage goes to the cause. You could browse amongst the second hand stuff but you don't have to.

A novelty that has taken off in the historic Barbican area of Plymouth UK and proved to be an almost cult haunt for locals and tourists looking for a dainty trad tea shop. St Luke's Hospice is an entirely independent hospice serving Plymouth West Devon and South East Cornwall. It is enormously popular and respected. It operates thirty charity shops in the immediate area several which are specialist bookshops and others clothing or furniture. Some sell coffee but the new shop in two units of the mostly early nineteenth century Southside Street was set up about eight months ago as an antique and bookshop with half given over to a tea shop exploiting the old building and stock. It has an authentic feel and has become busy most of the time to the point of occasional queues. Worth a Tripadvisor listing.
