Teacup Tearoom - Mevagissey
Quite possibly THE most Instagrammable cafe in cornwall!
Cornwall is full of quaint, cute cafes and tearooms. However it's hard to find one that offers everything. Bright and modern enough but with a nod to the tearooms of the past. Friendly enough but with a discerning clientele. All the usual Cornish fayre but fresh, light and delicious.
I’m sure you will want to find that perfect cream tea. The one which has been on your mind ever since you booked your Cornish holiday! I certainly did and I think I found all of the above in a newly opened cafe in Mevagissey.
Teacup Tearoom has just opened in Church Street and is a real joy.
Not just a business
After ten years abroad owners Lis and David wanted to return and do something where they could work together.
They have taken great care to not only refurbish the beautiful café into the gem that you see now but the decor and every single item you touch has quite clearly been carefully chosen.
From the globe glass jars brimming with homemade biscuits to the little teapot saucer in which to place your teaspoon. Nothing has been overlooked.
What to eat
All of the food and drink is of the highest quality. There is no heaviness to the scones. No crusty clotted cream. Where possible everything is sourced locally and is Cornish.
Soft drinks are not global sugary brands but from local fruit farms. Speaking of which the jams are spectacular! My son tried to eat all of mine after having his own peach, raspberry and apple crumble!
Tea selections are excellent and coffee a real passion. They have a wide selection of delicacies from savoury and sweet scones to croissants, cakes, biscuits and tea cakes.
Plant milks are on offer and they are very happy to make you something that suits you, such as we needed a soya babyccino for my little girl.
If you want to find somewhere where you can confidently take your beloved pup this is the place! Dogs are so welcome here, they have biscuits, puppacinos and their own towels and comfy mat to sit on! They are quite rightly treated like little kings!
Coffee with a conscience
Lis and David are also very conscious of how everything they provide effects the environment. Water is free and not bottled. Straws are paper not plastic. Coffee cups to go are recyclable. Beautiful Chilly's reusable water bottles are for sale.
I love finding little treasures like the Teacup Tearoom. You know when you support a small business the effect of your custom is so much greater and more appreciated. Your day is improved by visiting a place where the staff genuinely care if you have a wonderful experience.
The time and thought which has gone into the Teacup Tearoom is quite staggering! So go and treat yourself to a lovely afternoon. You will want to return again and again!
