As soon as I walked in I knew this was the place for me :) Cozy armchairs, jazz music playing, and friendly staff. Also has good wifi which is rare in Looe! A great place to work or meet a friend. 5 stars!!!

We decided to have a scone and cup of tea, happened upon this quaint little cafe that takes pride in using locally sourced produce. The food and service was excellent, loved the specials board.

Our family stopped here for coffee which was excellent. We were so impressed by this and the friendly service we had received, we stayed on for light lunches which included delicious home made walnut & stilton scones. Thoroughly recommended.
