The Cook Book – good smells of fresh ground coffee, soup cooking and flowers

The Cook Book

A way of Life

The Cook Book from Cape Cornwall RoadSince we opened in 2003, The Cook Book has become more a way of life than a business. We treat visitors to our café exactly the same as people who come to our home.

Bright, cheerful staff engage in every aspect of the café-bookshop, taking great pride in their work.

The bar is a good place to sit alone or with friends. You will be warmly welcomed; there are papers to read and people to talk to.

The dining room is simply furnished, with 5 round tables seating up to 26 people.

Cook Book Coffee… an exuberant Australian told us it is “the best ever!”

Breakfast is served all day unless we’re really busy.

Tempting Cakes and More!

Cakes and scones baked for us by Julie Chapple include our favourite, dried apricot and almond; fantastic chocolate fudge, lemon drizzle that melts in your mouth and coffee and walnut that vanishes as soon as it’s made.

Cook Book breakfasts are served all day, unless we are exceptionally busy. Fresh free range Cornish eggs, sausages made in St. Just, local bread … the list goes on!

Soup is one of The Cook Book’s most popular lines and varies with the availability of vegetables and the ingenuity of the cook. Most soups are suitable for vegetarians.

Lunch-time Specials offer a selection of delicious meals, from home-baked ham, tarts, pies and quiches, local home-smoked mackerel to casseroles, salads and other dishes, depending on the season.

Cheese Teas are a special treat – a home-made apple and walnut scone, a home-made cheese and herb scone, three Cornish cheeses, home-made red onion jam, a side salad and tea – delicious.

Our cream teas are a true Cornish feast – two home-made scones, a saffron bun, Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream, delicious Boddington’s Strawberry Jam from Mevagissey and your choice from a wide selection of teas.

As far as possible we buy local produce.

The Cook Book was awarded the prestigious CHEFS Gold Award in February 2011
