The view is great and the Crab sandwich was excellent. If the weather is nice make sure you seat outside.

Delicious coffee, great cakes, cute decor, but unfriendly staff. Nice tables outside overlooking the harbour.

Very welcoming with decent food and drink. Overpriced food though. The best thing is the cosiness of the cafe and the view from its windows overlooking the harbour.

Not the first time we have visited The Museum Tearoom but this time we had my parents with us and a chatty 3.5 year old and they, too, enjoyed the little place that you can enjoy once going around the museum. The cakes and cream teas are just delicious and they have a brilliant range of drinks - choose the... More

Now, I'm a smiley person, and can normally get the sternest of folk to engage in a brief conversation, but the two women in this establishment during our visit were unbelievably cold. Nothing other than single word offerings, and that felt like they'd been dragged out under duress. No please, no thank you, no eye contact. No customer service what... More

Great little tea room. Hot savouries, cakes and coffee all ok and not amazing, but worth it purely for the location and harbour views. Always stop off here after our walk.

I popped in here with the family after a visit to the museum next door. The decor was lovely and it seemed very cosy. Since we were away, I decided to treat the family to a couple of Brownies to share. We don't usually have cakes. The bill was a tad eyebrow raising, but I figured that with cakes, that... More

Whilst walking around Polperro we came across this tea room and as the weather was still nice we sat at an outside table although there was seating inside too. You order and pay at the counter and they make your drinks. You add your own milk and sugar which ar available at a separate station. The tearoom is right next... More

Stopped off here for refreshments after a few hours walking around this charming village; we were just looking for a drink but could not resist the cakes - & they tasted as good as they looked!! The tearoom is very small, although there are some tables outside, but is placed right above the harbour so is really nicely situated for... More
