Lovely breakfast. Would have preferred non- sourdough bread but otherwise everything was good. Waitress did not offer sauces which my hb would have like but otherwise brilliant

Wonderful food and brilliant service. Good portion size - realistic portions. Beautifully presented food and very tasty. I had a meat platter, Greek salad side and hand cut chips at lunchtime. I recommend them all.

This is my favourite place for vegan breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just a nice vegan hot chocolate! The vibe is so relaxed and welcoming, the service is friendly and swift, the food is so good! There is a separate vegan menu too if you ask.
I always bring friends here when they are visiting me in Cornwall, as I know it will be a consistent service.

A lovely place with great food.
Very poor parking. I was told quite curtly to use the park and ride car park 100 yards across the road. I dropped off my friend, who has limited mobility and she was ignored for a good couple of minutes before being shown to our table to wait for my return. I wasn’t impressed by this.

Such a cosy atmosphere like visiting someone's house. We loved it. Really Great food, chilled music, and staff that make you feel loved and cared for. Really hard to find fault but if i had to i would say Romance the lighting a bit. It's a bit bright in your eyes once you sit down. ❤️

Great food, great service and a great atmosphere: there was a blazing log fire and a group in the covered outside seating area enjoying making Christmas wreaths. We ordered from the Italian dishes on the menu. They were authentic in flavour and well presented. The portions were on the generous side.
