Open every day

Hello, and welcome to our little cafe! A special place where you can relax, feel at home and enjoy delicious food and drink.

The best, locally sourced food

Join us for breakfast and choose from: fresh pastries and artisanal bread from the award-winning Baker Tom’s, Sarah’s perfect bacon butty, or something yummy on toast. All served with a proper pot of tea or freshly brewed coffee. 

For lunch, there’s always homemade soup and toasted sandwiches on the menu. And, depending on the season, crab sandwiches and mackerel pâté too.

If you’re joining us for morning coffee or afternoon tea, we’ve got beautiful homemade cakes, brownies and a real Cornish cream tea that’s not to be missed.

Everything you need

Our cafe is bright, chic and cosy, with comfy seating and original artwork on the walls. We’ve also got a little shop filled with the prettiest of gifts and accessories handpicked by owner Sarah.


There’s free WiFi and plenty of free parking outside.

Oh, and dogs are very welcome too!

A warm welcome

We’re set right in the heart of Mawnan Smith, our pretty village near the beautiful Helford River.
