Wonderful cream teas! Best scones by far! Also salad was fab! All cakes and baked goods homemade by Mum and her daughters run the front of house! Dogs welcome Nice views over the harbour Highly recommended

Disappointing service and disappointing cream tea. Most concerning was the poor service offered to another family who had a family member in a wheelchair. There were no tables free and they were told it could be a ten minute wait. They were ok with this...More

Just the best scones and a friendly team that served us. The scones are homemade by “mum” and the clotted cream was rich from Rhondda

We visited a couple of days ago for a coffee and Sandwich. The coffee was a local brew which I liked. The food was good and our view of the harbour was great. It was served by a friendly smiling staff member. All good here.

Popped in for a cup of tea. My daughter had a vegan Flapjack. Best she's ever had. Chap who served us was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again before the end of our holiday

Visited last week whilst on holiday. Very nice cream tea at a very reasonable price. Sat by the window so lovely view of harbour. Excellent and friendly service.

We came here for breakfast on our last day in Mevagissey. Full English breakfast was very well made and my wife enjoyed her cream tea very much. Staff was friendly and we wish we can come back very soon.

Had a quick stop here on a very busy day in Mevagissey, place was full of tourists during the board masters week. The staff dealt well with a packed cafe, service ran smoothly. The cheese scones were really nice. The location is great, right on...More

What a lovely place to pass time watching the bustling harbour. Great coffee and the best scones we have had this holiday.

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.
