The view out over Porthleven Harbour are worth a visit. The coffee was served beautifully, almost too nice to drink. If its a good day you can sit across the road next to the harbour and the barrister brings your drinks across to you.

Visited Porthleven for the market and called in for refreshments. We had a long wait because only 1 person there to take orders, dispense drinks and clear tables.

We both enjoyed a hot chocolate here this morning. Good service, nice views, great selection of drinks, well presented and delicious! They even have chilled water with cucumber slices that you can help yourself to.

Was excited for Origins coffee but found this to be very bitter. Smell was fabulous in the shop but something was definitely wrong with the flat white I had. At least it was made to the correct temperature .

Very good coffee, I am a fan of Origin coffees as they never disappoint. The coffee shop is very small inside but they do put out chairs and bean bags on the grass in good weather.
