Great place to eat or for just coffee. The food and drinks were great value for money. The coffee was brilliant and the sandwich I I had and the meal my wife had were great.

We visit St Marys every Autumn and this year, we were thrilled that the Kavorna was still open. Perhaps they are staying open whilst the Scillonian is still sailing. Beautiful food available at all times of the day. Friendly service too.

We stopped by for an afternoon tea after a day exploring the Island. The place is clean and the staf are freindly, the food was very good. They also sell slices of cake to take away, which is good to know if you are going to explore the other islands and want to take a picnic for the day.

Geranium ice-cream! I went back every single day for a daily fix. My husband had a coffee and cake one day and he said that it was delicious. The staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit.

Called in for a light lunch on our first day on St Mary's. Also ordered some crab sandwiches on the last day. Very reasonable!

Excellent service close to the harbour. All of the food looked amazing. We were just sorry we didn't have any room for any more food. Great position for anyone using Scillonian upon arrival for lunch if you didn't want to venture to far, or like us a drink before the journey home. Cake was great

Not open until 9.00 a.m., but warm, cheerful and comfortable, with an excellent choice of foods and drinks.
