Our late lunch visit to Fat Lemons started well. I am gluten free and when asking for the menu I was told you can have anything gf free apart from toasted sandwiches. Which is lovely for someone gluten free who is usually very limited. We arrived at 2.30pm after the lunchtime rush. Excellent food my husband told me ( he... More

Firstly I would like to apologise for making you feel uncomfortable, it was not my intention, yesterday was a difficult day for us but as you rightly say that is not your problem. We were unable to offer you gluten free toast that day to go with your meal. I should have made you more aware of the fact that... More

Good place to drop in for a light meal or coffee / snack. Friendly owner. Newspapers available to read while you relax. Outside area for those warmer days.

We dropped in to Fat Lemons for a quick coffee. What a find. Don't miss the mulled apple juice with cinammon and orange - truly wonderful, particularly when there's frost on the ground. The food and drink are terrific, and the service is fantastic. So friendly and welcoming.

Family run, friendly staff, and really inventive dishes. When you come to Cornwall/Devon, you need to have a scone. And my scone cravings were satisfied here. Tucked away, but its worth looking for.

I stumbled on this little gem last summer when I went in tempted by the Greek salad. It did not disappoint especially as it had gluten free pittas! Been back on numerous occasions since and have always had an excellent meal. Great staff and clean dinning area with a few tables outside for sunny days. Shame it doesn't open for... More
