After encountering such great success with her first venture over in Helston, the lovely April has opened a second Craft Box in the Cornish coastal town of Penzance. The Craft Box is a delightful café and crafting store where families can enjoy creating something with their own hands as well as tucking into some very fine sandwiches, fish and chips and home baked cake.
This Penzance outlet specialises in ceramic painting as there is an actual kiln onsite, and customers are invited to create a variety of things including pretty mugs, milk jugs, plates, cups and saucers. The perfect destination for children and adults alike, The Craft Box has gained popularity fast in Penzance since its opening.
Asides from pots of tea, The Craft Box offers wonderfully rich fairtrade Carrero 1927 coffee bean which is ground just before being made. The highlight for any hungry parent accompanying their kids on their weekend creative exploits however, is the fresh and flavoursome food. Try the battered fish and chips, or something from their ever-rotating range of sandwiches, both hot and cold. Those looking to be sensible can opt for a salad; although frankly, it may be the wrong place to visit if you're trying to be kind on your hips. The range of sweet treats is as colourful as it is impressive.
The Craft Box in Penzance is a quirky little place with a vintage style setting of old solid wood tables and farmhouse style wooden chairs. Crafting materials are dotted about the place and people can be found chattering whilst getting stuck into their lovely creations. Just a short walk from the picturesque harbour and seafront of Penzance, The Craft Box is an absolute delight.
