Sat here waiting for the disappointing canon... But the coffee was superb, so much so, I had to find a shop nearby selling the beans!

I had ice cream for breakfast with a coffee from next door.....a very rare thing for me to do! It was lovely ice cream and a fab town to eat in over looking the harbour and tall ships, a great morning.

Great little coffee stop. Fab Cornish Pasty, gluten free options too. Highly recommended especially as it has a great view of the tall ship too.
