We have visited with two small children in September 2015. It is a bit quirky as it is an actual shop with superb view and very lovely mid day meal (sandwich), nothing to fancy but delicious. The coffee was great!

Every day of our holiday to Carbis Bay we would make time to stop off at the Vintage coffee shop. It is not only the best place to get coffee and cake but the board games and music make for a relaxing atmosphere. You do not feel rushed or hurried in any way and the view.....? well that's to die... More

Lovely little place right on the front- a few simple games to keep the kids entertained and nice selection of food- ideal for a snack

We popped in here and were lucky enough to get the widow seat overlooking the harbour. We had the cream tea and have to say it was wonderful. The pot of loose leaf tea was a cracking brew! We enjoyed sitting gazing out of the window watching the world go by. We will be going back!

Enjoyed our tea and cake here. The shop was quirky and we enjoyed exploring all of the items and furniture for sale. The staff were all friendly and helpful and our food arrived quickly and was good.

Came across this place while hunting for cream tea along the front. Loved every minute of being there, great music (records may I add, no iPod!), cool furniture, a real nice quirky feel to the place. Had two cream teas which were awesome and a quick game of Dominoes with other half. I just wish I lived closer so I... More

We both had coffees and brownies and were not disappointed. Will certainly visit again. If you manage to sit at the front of the café you have... More

Stumbled across this place today in St Ives and was very surprised by the standard they have set for coffee shops within cornwall. A very quirky, off beat style to the decor which really compensated well with the menu. Great vibe, nice tunes. We had the brownie which was a great portion for the price and I had a flat... More
