The decor is rustic and comfortable with a number of large sofas and small tables, and of course very Dog Friendly! 


As you would expect, our coffee is a main feature of the shop. We serve it strong and smooth using the finest freshly ground Italian coffee. We offer milk alternatives to cater for all dietery and taste requirements and specialist options such as spiced apple tea. 


The coffee shop celebrates Cornish produce and fresh simple light bites. Breakfast options include Poached eggs and avocado, vegan breakfast burrito and toasted banana bread whilst toasted paninis and vegan loaded salad bowl are just some of the lunchtime delights. 

As you would also expect, our Cornish Cream Tea is perfection with Cornish clotted cream and Cornish strawberry jam. All our cakes are made on site using the best ingredients, many of which are vegan or gluten free. 

The coffeeshop has a connecting icecream parlour serving icecream sundaes using Delicious Cornish icecream from Callestick farm. The Polperro Kraken, a show stopping sharing icecream sundae which includes 8 icecream scoops, 8 toppings, sauces, whipped cream and six flakes decorated with pirates’ flags is a real hit with families. 

We open late Friday – Sunday with a simple evening menu designed around sharing platters. We turn the lights down and candle light the space encouraging a chilled-out vibe perfect for couples or friends. Loaded nachos, Bruschetta, Cornish cheeseboard are a few of our popular platters. 


The coffeeshop also doubles as a gallery space supporting a number of other local artists as well as showcasing the work of local artist, coursework tutor and owner Lesa Welch. 

There are free art activities available for our younger visitors during the day allowing parents the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved coffee in peace. Evenings during the week you can attend one of the very popular art classes and create your own Cornish holiday souvenir. 

All classes are tailored for absolute beginners and tuition is supportive but allows you to develop at your own pace. Classes range from a few hours to the occasional full day class. Classes are scheduled regularly throughout the year, but we are also able to cater for private bookings/events/parties etc. Class availability can be found on the board outside the shop, on our Facebook page, or by calling the shop directly.
