Popped in this morning after a nice walk around the harbour. Almost walked past as it seemed full but really glad we ventured in as the service and food was superb. Had to wait about 25 mins for the food but it was worth it....More

Make time for a Cornish Tea here and don't even consider calorie counting! Service is quick and friendly and their scones are excellent.

We had the Cream Tea here yesterday and it was phenomenal! The scones were so light that the only things that could improve them were the clotted cream and strawberry jam that went on them. A heavenly ensemble.

We visited whilst on a holiday in St Ives. The place has just about as good a view as it gets. Positioned right on the harbour front. The place is spotless. Toilets - very modern. Prices were fine, but the food was a different league....More

Enjoyed a full English, mushrooms on toast and a huge piece of flapjack for our toddler. All very tasty and fresh, delicious coffee too. Lovely view and super friendly. Will definitely return on our next trip to Mevagissy.

I really don't know if you are able to book a table in advance, we popped in on the off chance, but the cafe has nice big windows and is on the quay side so a good view from pretty much anywhere you sit.
