My wife and I always eat at The Olde Tea Parlour when we visit Launceston. They serve excellent, home-cooked meals, the best cheese and tomato sandwiches in Cornwall and a wide selection of cakes, all in an attractive and friendly atmosphere.

To this charming tea parlour where the excellent tea ( loose leaf) is only surpassed by the choice of homemade scones, cake and cookies. There is also a small but interesting range of hot foods available and an extensive range of freshly made sandwiches. No...More
