Can’t go wrong with this place. The service is quick, prices are good and the food tastes great. The staff are very welcoming and chatty. A proper decent little cafe for stopping off in Porthleven that doesn’t overcharge. Perfect.

Food is great as are the milkshakes. Very small but friendly. When it gets busy there is a bit of a wait however, all worth waiting for.
