Warm and inviting café with relaxing, colourful and comfortable interior. Felt more like someone's living room, than a café. Friendly with very good service. Excellent scone with jam, cream and two whole strawberries. The coffee was good too. Wasn't staying in Fowey so only visited once, but will definitely re-visit, when I'm in the area again.

Found this quirky cafe whilst tying to find some lunch and shelter from the rain. I cannot have dairy or yeast and both the owner and assistant took this on board, offering Oat cakes instead of bread to go with the lovely vegetarian pate and salad, they even checked when I ordered Ginger Beer and informed me that it had...

We popped in one morning in February when a shower passed, just for a cup of tea and a seat. Made welcome and comfortable. Feels very family oriented. Children very welcome. At a different time we would have taken more advantage of the menu (and cakes).

Great little cafe on the edge of town with a good homely feel.I don't understand "quirky" reviews as it's just a colourful friendly place and there's not a 'quirk' in sight. However, this little cafe is,in the main, catering for the passing tourist trade or the many wealthy second home owners in Fowey and is disproportionately expensive in my opinion.... More

The photo of the interior gives a pretty good impression of what you are in for atmosphere-wise - quirky, kitch and a fondness for running the whole of Elvis Presley's 'Fun in Acapulco' - mercifully without the sound. The staff were very helpful in sorting out a vegan salad for us - very fresh (despit it being Febriary) and fully... More

Very unusual decor and full of character, but I liked this, something a bit different. Service was great and food very tasty. I did think it was slightly over priced though, and was disappointed there wasn't the option to have a full English breakfast, just bacon sandwiches with the option of tomatoes and/or mushrooms. If your after somewhere out of... More

Not our type of venue I'm afraid. Can't stand re-loved style. I'm sorry to say that the tea was so weak it didn't taste of tea. Very disappointing. Sorry

We called in for coffee and cake the other morning. The staff were very friendly, and the coffee was good. Lots of things to look at on the walls, and a basket of knitting to carry on with, if you feel the urge!
