FIKA at NEWLYN ART GALLERY / TUE – SUN, 08.30 – 16.00 (FRI 07.00 – 16.00)

We are delighted to welcome Fika to Newlyn Art Gallery garden, their new home for the summer.
Come and try their amazing coffee and delicious homemade food and cakes. There’s something for everyone in our tranquil garden space.

Fika, pronounced ‘fee-kuh’, is a Swedish word that roughly translates to ‘coffee and cake’.

You can sit on benches in the sun-filled garden, or there is a covered seating area. Alternatively, you may take your food and drink to The Studio on the first floor if the weather is bad. The café is accessible from Newlyn Green, through the white gate. During the summer, there are deckchairs and tables on The Green, with fantastic views across Mount’s Bay and just a stone’s throw from the beach.


We are proud to have achieved plastic-free status from Plastic Free Penzance, and wherever possible use locally sourced ingredients and small, independent suppliers.

 Our coffee comes from Roasting Room, based in Newquay and Tugboat based in Truro supply us with a wide choice teas.

 Growing Links supplies our seasonal and locally grown salads.

The Huskee cups we use in our cafes are made of recycled materials, including waste coffee husk, and at end of life, are recycled and replaced by the manufacturer. You can buy your own from our shops! Huskee is a Certified B Corporation.

Well behaved dogs are welcome. Just ask if you would like water for them.
