Devon and Cornwall have become real foodie spots over the past few years and despite producing amazing food for centuries, we’re perhaps only now getting the national and international recognition our culinary delights deserve. One thing that is certainly making us stand out is our coffee shops, so whether you’re looking for a Caffe Americano or some homemade shortbread, here’s 10 of the very best in Cornwall, as recommended by MiHi Digital’s Twitter followers:
Charlie’s Coffee House – Charlestown
Nestled in the heart of Cornish fishing village Charlestown is Charlie’s Coffee House. The family-run coffee shop opened in 2007 and is as popular for its coffee as it is for homemade cakes and sarnies.
Yummy Scrummy Bakery – Par
Living up to its name, Yummy Scrummy serves an impressive selection of breakfast and lunchtime favourites. Grab a cup of freshly ground coffee, enjoy a sandwich made with organic bread, or indulge in one of the specials; all made using local produce.
Stones Bakery – Falmouth
What started as a small stall at local markets has become a popular café and bakery on Falmouth High Street. Why not pop in when you’re passing – there’s nothing better than a brew to accompany freshly made cakes and pastries from the bakery!
Just Be Coffee Wine Lounge – Saltash
What happens when you combine coffee, wine and a view of the River Tamar? You get the perfectly placed Just Be Coffee Wine Lounge. Take your tipple outside, or cosy up on the couch with your coffee and a game of chess. Open from Wednesday to Sunday.
Strong Aldofos – near Wadebridge
