I’m visiting family in Penzance, Cornwall at the moment and this little cafe sits just around the corner from the town center so we thought we’d give it a go! Small towns nowadays are so often filled with a barrage of Pret, Cafe Nero and Wetherspoon chains that the few little independent shops and cafes that Penzance has is quite refreshing . The cafe was relatively busy, but not uncomfortably so and we were able to sit straight away.
The menu is really veggie friendly, with plenty of choice for meat eaters too. I went for the homity pie, a favourite of mine! The standard menu also included plenty of sandwiches and salads. The drinks menu also includes a variety of cordials and syrups for both still and sparkling water, I had the peach tea syrup and it was delicious!
The homity pie portion was huge! It came with a lightly dressed salad and red onion marmalade, both equally yummy! The pie was light, not rich, but also really filling and tasty with a few hints of dill. What I really wanted was to try everything on the menu, but funds and stomach space would not permit!
There are also a selection of traditional cornish cream teas and lots of yummy looking cakes, which I unfortunately did not get to try! However we did take home a slice of the lemon and lime cheesecake, which I’ve been told was delicious! All of the cheesecakes are suitable for vegetarians and two of the selection are also gluten free, very handy if you’re intolerant. There are also 7 delicious gluten free ordinary cakes to choose from!
If you’re in Penzance this holiday I would recommend giving this place a try, I will definitely be revisiting!
