Mackerel Sky Café Bar

45 New Street, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 2LZ
Although this little eaterie styles itself as a 'café bar', we feel they are rather selling themselves short on a kitchen that produces well-cooked dishes of a high standard.

Expect a crisp modern interior, with stone-clad walls, solid bare tables and an intimate atmosphere - with a few tables downstairs and a more expansive dining area on the first floor.

A short typed menu is backed up by blackboard 'specials'.

A summer lunchtime snapshot bringing 'Roasted Butternut Squash, Goats Cheese & Almond Salad'; 'Welsh Rabbit on Toast'; 'Homemade Flatbread with Olives, Houmous & Baba Ghanoush' and 'Platter of Cured Meat with Olives & Caper Salad' amongst the starters.

'Local Fishcakes with Lemon & Herb Couscous'; 'Gnocchi with Butrernut Squash & Sage Butter'; 'Char-Grilled Lamb Burger with Salad & French Fries'; 'Mackerel Sky All Day Breakfast' (including a vegetarian version) and a much enjoyed 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Hake with Pea, Spring Onion & Leek Risotto' listed amonst the mains.

Salad leaves and their dressing deserve a particular thumbs-up.

A few simple desserts such as a 'Trio of Mini Desserts - lemon posset, chocolate pot & vanilla pannacotta' complete the food picture.

Service is friendly and helpful.
