Has anyone been to a tea room called Cupcakes, in Port Isaac? Do they have a cream tea? Or an afternoon tea? Whats it like inside?

I have never been to Cupcakes, but most places in Cornwall will sell you a cream tea. This is different to afternoon tea, in that it consists of a pot of tea, and some scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream on them.

....and it's traditional, in fact, obligatory that you eat up ALL the cream, even if it has to be piled up two inches high on the scone....:0)

If it's where I think it is, I had a cream tea there in the summer with visiting family. It was fine but not what you may be looking for (ref your other post asking about tea rooms) if you're after something special.

Places that I know do real afternoon teas in lovely surroundings include:

The Headland Hotel at Newquay, the St Enodoc Hotel at Rock (nearest to Port Isaac) and Fowey Hall at Fowey (furthest away from Port Isaac on the south coast but a lovely place to visit). For any of these you would be better to book in advance, especially if you want to get a good table with views.

Hi, we often go to cupcakes. The cakes are homemade and very good. It is in a very picturesque location in the heart of the fishing village of Port Isaac, and it is in a beautiful old fishermans cottage.
