Little Wonder Café, Penzance
Little Wonder is a 1979 Elddis Mistral caravan that’s been given a new lease of life as a cafe. After a lot of TLC and a fresh coat of paint she took up her position on the Western end of Penzance Promenade and started serving hot and cold drinks, homemade sweet and savoury treats and stunning sea views. As she became better known she started to get invited to other venues and is now regularly seen at exhibition openings at the Newlyn Gallery, fetes in Morrab Gardens and wherever delicious cake is needed.
Craftworks Kitchen humbly began its journey after their purchase of a shiny, 1966 American Airstream trailer back in 2014. Starting with pop-up events, they made a presence at events such as Boardmasters, the Masked Ball and Polo on the beach at Watergate bay, alongside many weddings, to make for an incredibly busy first year. Ever growing they have now taken delivery off their new food truck for 2017. New ventures, new ideas, more weddings and festivals coming to a place very soon….
