Review: Tea on the Quay in Mevagissey, Cornwall

TOQ_Circular

This review is slightly different to my usual posts as I’m reviewing my first food and drink establishment. Tea on the Quay is a family owned tea room located in Mevagissey Harbour in Cornwall.

The views from Tea on the Quay are beautiful as it is situated along the harbour and is a perfect stop for a light lunch, coffee or a cake! Tea on the Quay is the perfect place to visit during a sunny day by the sea but also on a winter’s day when you want a hot drink to warm you up!

Mevagissey is a pretty village and fishing port near to St Austell and St Mawes in Cornwall, South West England. The village has a selection of cute shops including a sweet shop, arts and craft shops, a Cornish fudge shop and jewellers. Mevagissey is a perfect day trip where you can browse the shops, stroll across the harbour and visit Tea on the Quay.

I visited Mevagissey Harbour with my family on the weekend and between us we sampled a variety of the cafe’s hot drinks and cakes. I ordered the hot chocolate deluxe and the chocolate sponge cake with chocolate ganache filling, strawberries and raspberries (chocolate overload!). This was a delicious combination if you’re a chocolate lover, the sponge was light and the filling was tasty.

My family opted for the less chocolatey option and had scones, victoria sponge cake, teas and coffees which they said were tasteful. The victoria sponge cake was light and mouth-watering and the fruit and plain scones were scrumptious.

Tea on the Quay also has a lunch menu including a selection of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, quiches and omelettes.

You can take a look at their food gallery which shows off the wonderful foods you can taste at Tea on the Quay.

The staff were exceedingly friendly and their happy, bubbly personalities added something special to the atmosphere of the tea room. You get the sense of the close-knit family business which makes you feel like you’re spending your money in the right place.

I highly recommend visiting Tea on the Quay if you are near the area as it is a lovely tea room located in a beautiful harbouring village.

Tea on the Quay is open 10.30am to 6pm, Tuesday to Sunday, all year round. You can visit their website here.
