Tea on the Quay is family owned and run cafe & tea room, on the historic Mevagissey fishing harbour quayside.

Mum, Sally, bakes every single scone fresh each morning, each cake from scratch, and we are proud to use the best local Cornish produce available. This, and our family recipes make us unique for fresh & local quality.

Our specialities include Afternoon Tea, Cornish savoury and cream teas, and classic seasonal home-made cakes.

Relax in a stunning location, sipping a glass of prosecco or drinking a coffee made from our own coffee roast, blended and roasted in Cornwall. Our breakfast and lunchtime range includes a Cornish platter, and specials such as home-made quiches, sandwiches, paninis, and soups.

Vegan & Gluten Free ingredient scones are available as well as take-away options.

--UPDATE-- Gift Vouchers are now available online (also in store), with a beautiful presentation voucher - for those who might like a slice (or two!) of Mevagissey.
