Hi, and welcome to Smugglers - or Dydh da, Dynnargh dhis, as a handful of people might say. (We won't, don't worry.)
I'm Chrissie, owner of Smugglers Cafe and guilty of the five-year-old's handwriting that occasionally creeps onto the chalkboards.
Smugglers is my first venture into working for myself full-time, and I like my boss.
She doesn't complain when I'm late, she advocates lunchtime sunbathing, and she is happy to admit that we would all rather be at the beach.
Smugglers Cafe is designed to be a small breath of fresh, Cornish air in the midst of London life. We take the best produce Cornwall (and a few other places) have to offer; Origin coffee, Tregothnan tea, Cornish Orchards juices, St Endellion brie, Cornish yarg, naturally leavened bread, very Cornish crepes, Roskillys ice cream and jam, Roddas clotted cream, St Ives Raw Choc Pie... and experiment with our own combinations; Crab, avocado and sea spaghetti salad, or strawberry, sea salt and chocolate cake.
But the person who wanted nutella, lemon, honey, sugar, banana, maple syrup and bacon all on one crepe was going a bit far, even for us.
We hope that you will enjoy these creations in our relaxed atmosphere; at a 'rustic' table, with chilled music, and surrounded by seascape artwork and dubious Cornish signs.
We are new and evolving, so we love feedback - please do get in touch with anything you think we should add or change, or if you are interested in holding meetings, events, parties etc at our cafe, or would like to use any of our products elsewhere; some of our party and delivery options are shown in the links above.
Our piece of Cornwall is your piece of Cornwall. Yeghes da! (Cheers!)
