Great quality food using local Cornish produce, The Cornish Deli serves food all day by the Deli team lead by owner Mark. Gluten free and vegetarian options and a friendly atmosphere make this a great café serving wonderful food.
The Digey Food Room
Another of our absolute favourites. Freshly prepared food, with an all day breakfast and lunch (served until 3pm with a smaller menu served from 3-6pm) The Digey Food Room also has a great delicatessen. We recommend trying one of the homemade soups with organic bread!
