Lovely coffee and great breakfast choices for adults (we both had porridge with honey/banana and the other with fruit compote) but not so much on offer for the kids. My son ended up just having buttered toast and a bottle of apple juice.More

We were passing through Truro today and wanted a light lunch and the soup of the day, parsnip and squash was enough to entice us in! The cafe is very small, so check if you want a table, and service was a little slow, but...More
