Do you take bookings?
Tables are walk-in only for the summer – so please just come on down and we will get you seated as soon as possible. Wait times generally aren’t too long and we are running a deli counter, so all of our freshly made food and drinks are available to take away as well. If you have mobility issues and cannot wait for a table, or have a party of 6 or over, then please call the cafe on 01736 368686 and we can reserve you a table. Bookings will resume in September after the school holidays. Thank you for your understanding.
Do you do evening meals?
Not at the moment – but we sometimes do special evening events, so please keep an eye on our social media for updates.
Do you allow dogs?
Yes, well behaved four legged friends are welcome in the cafe
Do you have a children’s menu?
Yes – see ‘little bees’ on our menu page.
Do you have wheelchair access?
Yes, double doors to the café can be opened to allow wheelchairs inside and we are happy to move furniture to accommodate all. Unfortunately, our toilet is not wheelchair accessible.
Do you have a vegan menu/gluten-free options?
Our regular menu is largely vegetarian and vegan with plenty to choose from for all diets. We have plenty of gluten-free options – both savoury and sweet.
Are your cakes homemade?
Yes – we make all our cakes and food on the premises with the exception of yeasted products which come from local artisan bakeries St Ives Bakery and Paul’s Bread.
5 Parade Street, Penzance, TR18 4BU
By car: When you enter Penzance, follow the one-way system past the train station and take the left-hand lane past the Wharfside shopping centre and the harbour. Follow the road onto the promenade, past the Jubilee Pool and turn right at The Lugger Hotel up Queen Street. At the top of Queen Street take the first left past The Globe pub and Cornwall Contemporary art gallery. We are a few metres down, on the left.
Parking: There is no on-street parking outside the café but there are several car parks in Penzance, including Greenmarket car park (TR18 4SG), which is only a two-minute walk away from the café, Clarence Street (TR18 2NP) and Penalverne (TR18 2RQ). The Harbour car park (TR18 2GB) offers longer stay options, more spaces and is only a six-minute walk.
On foot: Walk all the way up Market Jew Street past Tesco Express and Weatherspoon’s pub. Take the first left and cross the road towards Clark’s shoe shop onto Queen’s Square. Take the right turn past the small Co-op onto Parade Street and you’ll see us on your left a few metres down.
We were so pleased to stumble across The Honey Pot. A delightful little café with delicious food, drinks and sublime cake! Absolutely 100% recommend!
Well worth the trip to get here. Lovely food and lovely staff. Cream tea was excellent and freshly baked scones to die for!
A great café. Good food, good prices, good staff, good ethics. Best of all, great gluten-free and dairy-free selection. What’s not to like?
