Pinky Poem

December 18th feeling blue, sat at home what shall i do,
Think of a place that i would like to be,
The sun the sand and fowey's deep blue sea,
And a place full of warmth, and summer cheer
The platters, watercress soup and ginger beer
So on goes the lap top and what should i find
But pinky murphy's website, and i am suddenly there,
If but only in my mind.

Thanks for the memory cant wait to return. - Kerry in Chesterfield

What a brilliant place,...

...we absolutely loved it, the vegetarion pate was to die for, and so much of it (any chance of the recipe? - probably not!) books to read while you wait and so many quirky bits to keep you busy - perfect,thank you for making a good day special and for making us smile. - by Avril

I love this place!...

...The eclectic mix of stuff, the way nothing matches, the way the tables are named after singers instead of numbered, the laid back attitude & last but not least the great food! Went there for lunch today with two good friends & we all loved it. - by Heather

Have visited Pinky's a couple of times and each time it gets better...

...The food is great and there are a fab range of cakes plus one of the best cream teas I've had (and trust me I've had a few!) The atmosphere of the places is just the icing on the cake-it's like sitting in a funky beach shack on your granny's chairs (and I mean that in a good way)! Go there but be prepared to wait for a seat as word spreads. - by Cate

Really great place for relaxing with coffee and cake...

...Everything looks home made and the place itself is wacky. Try the carrot cake - by Louise

Pinkies is not only the friendliest WiFi cafe in the world...

...It's also the strangest! - Sports Boat and Rib Magazine July 2009

This is one of my favourite places in Cornwall...

...Actually, one of my favourite places anywhere! It's the delightfully mismatched, ultra relaxed cafe, Pinky Murphy's in Fowey. Everything is perfect here. It doesn't matter which chair you end up sat in, it's comfortable, it doesn't matter what book you pick from the shelves to read, it's got something in it that you just have to read out to the people you're with, it doesn't matter whether you order the scone or the carrot cake, they're both equally amazing!

Inexplainably (but brilliantly!) there's a bucket of unfinished knitting by some of the tables, which means if you fancy it, you can add to the scarf that someone started last year! Which the girls had a go at!

If you're ever in that part of the world, it really is worth a visit, the staff are great, everything is relaxed, the food is cracking and it's even kid friendly! What more do you want!? Jonny Draper Photography

With its ramshackle beach-hut stylings...

...stripy director's chairs, salvage-chic furniture, beanbags for kids - this laid-back hangout is a good bet for sating savoury cravings. Plump for the goat's cheese bake. Mr and Mrs Smith

The funkiest coffee house in Fowey?...

...Was I gently coaxed by Sally's internet-gleaned knowledge of the funkiest coffee house in Fowey? Either way, a double espresso and a substantial scone consumed at our leisure at Pinky Murphy's (a place that might be described by the younger generation as 'well wacky') sitting with a sea view on an old plastic milk crate and a plank of wood softened by cushions, is something that should be on everyone's list of Things To Do Before I Go. In my case it is on my list of Things To Do Again Before I Go. Aspen House

My favourite cafe in the whole world...

...and all visitors to Fowey must go there and be enchanted! White Doll Arts

When all the stars align and the moon is in the seventh house...

...you get a one of a kind eatery like Pinky Murphy's. An oasis of comfy dining, great tunes and the best bowl of soup for miles. Fresh bread, home made cakes, and super coffee. The owner Jane had Jolly Jacks one of the best deli's in Cornwall and now she turns her charms to creating a relaxed and fun place to do lunch. The Cream Teas are amazing as is the selection of tea to choose from. A Class on their own. Fowey Hideaway

I have to tell you about this cafe. It is wonderful...

...It is different, quirky, a one off. We visited today when on a visit to Fowey on a wet Tuesday at the beginning of March. It was pleasantly busy, it has comfy chairs, wonderful food, originally presented, great atmosphere, something different to look at in all directions, books to read, puzzles to do, perfect. And great for vegetarians. We had a vegetarian platter. And it was just that. It came on a wooden platter, with a selection of dips and sauces and fresh bread and delicious salad. It was magical. We went back for tea and that was fantastic too, again beautifully presented, I won't say more or it will spoil the surprises if you get there. I think it was well used by local people, always a good sign, but we did not feel like intruders. And it is friendly, arty, there is great music playing, and there is a full size sculpture of a man relaxing outside to see in the summer! I hope to go back, soon! Michael House Blogspot

Pinky Murphy's is about an hour away from my home...

...I would have absolutely not hesitation about driving there for lunch tomorrow. Indeed I quite possibly will. - by Lucy
