Lianne I cant tell you how amazing it was to meet you yesterday. We remember with great fondness your parents in laws restaurant in St Austell and to see you carrying on with those SENSATIONAL cake recipes made our day. My favourite was the Strawberry...Gateau but all were AMAZING. The coffee was super good and all served in a cute little garden. We wish you so much success - you have the perfect model to succeedMore

My partner and I had heard fabulous things about the incredible cakes served up at this cafe, which is tucked away in a gorgeous, out-of-the-way corner of Cornwall. So on a recent trip to the UK, we decided to do a side trip to Cornwall...and taste for ourselves. Well, the location of the cafe is simply divine ... Pentewan is in a word, gorgeous! But we were completely blown away with the stunning array of spectacular sweet treats on offer at the Little Bay Cafe ... all homemade! We were at a loss as to which ones to try, so the gorgeous owner of the cafe, Lianne, served us up a magnificent little platter of tasty morsels (possibly because we had travelled all the way from Sydney, Australia). The cakes were utterly heaven on a fork! What was our favourite? ... ALL OF THEM!!! I cannot praise the cakes, service, location, food or staff more highly. And the coffee was utter perfection ... and being a caffeine aficionado, that's really saying something! (I had 3 cups). If you are ever in this neck of the Cornish woods, make sure you drop in ... I promise you, you won't be disappointed!More

Passing while on a dog walk when husband and daughter were at the pool! Settled on the scone and a latte, delicious! Lovely little seating area which I can imagine is very popular!

Visited here a number of times during our holiday. Chatty and friendly staff. Great coffee and really juice bacon and egg bap! The teacakes were tasty too. Have already recommended it to others and will be back next time we are in Cornwall. Gets busy,...so make sure you get there early.More
