The Cook Book – St Just’s Café-Bookshop

Feeding the Body and Mind!

To tempt you while you browse our books are home-made cakes, delicious cream teas, seasonal soups, cheese teas with three Cornish cheeses, baguettes, breakfasts and “the best coffee in Cornwall”.

We have been awarded the top rating, 5 stars, for our standards of food hygiene every year since 2012.
