We visit regularly for coffee and/or lunches. The cakes are baked everyday on the premises, with a good variety and are delicious. The treacle tart is to die for!! as are the home-made scones for the cream teas. For the past 4 weeks we have also been for Sunday Roast dinners which are excellent and are good value. This is...

Whilst visiting Tintagel , we came across this quaint little Tearooms. We both ordered a Full English Breakfast and WOW what a delicious breakfast it was, perfectly cooked and very tasty local sausage and bacon. We loved it so much we went back later that afternoon after visiting the castle to try some of the delicious cakes they had on... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit here whilst in tintagel, best homemade cakes around for sure, after trying out a few cafes in the area I returned more than once to try the amazing selection they had on offer! Very reasonably priced, the owners were very friendly and sociable - highly recommend paying a visit if in the area 😊

We visited a few cafes during our weakling stay in the area, and this was head & shoulders above the rest. The food is excellent, home cooking, served by a lovely couple in a warm friendly setting. The breakfast and home made cakes are the stand outs here. Really good value for money and made on site by the owners... More

Stopped here for a breakfast and was not disappointed! Excellent home cooked breakfast, using local ingredients, such as Hogs Pudding. The price was very reasonable. Enjoyed the comfortable friendly setting as much as the food. Would highly recommend.

We had lovely cakes and drinks in here. It was a surprising find. Cakes look quite good in the window but are so much better to actually eat! They do offer gluten free cream teas and a gluten free cake. The gluten free scones would have been hard to tell from standard ones as they were not at ll dry,... More
