The Sorting Office, St Agnes

The Sorting Office, St Agnes

Originally St Agnes’ very own beloved Post Office and Sorting room, dating back to 1902, this delightful historical building is now a popular and characterful coffee house.

Walking through the pretty streets of the picturesque seaside village of St Agnes, you can easily be drawn in by the delicious smell of freshly ground coffee at The Sorting Office. Small at first on the outside, but perfectly appointed on the inside; making most of the space and highlighting some of its original features with tastefully modern and up-cycled interiors. In this lovely establishment, you can treat yourself to a cup of artisan coffee, fresh out-of-the oven pastries, unique and mouth-watering cakes and, definitely not forgetting, the Sorting Office’s famous smoothies.


Matched with its wonderful décor is its welcoming and warm atmosphere. Always praised for its friendly staff, you can enjoy spending a lazy afternoon here, watching the village of St Agnes go by, whilst sampling some of the unique sweets they have to offer such as Kernow Curls, a Cornish take on a Chelsea Bun. There is an extensive menu, including vegan and gluten-free options; our personal favourite is the selection of “Guilt Free Treats” where you can enjoy a Raw Salted Caramel slice – yum!


For those wanting a quick snack and something hot to drink whilst enjoying the coastal walks around St Agnes, there are many take out options – plus The Sorting Office is dog-friendly so you don’t need to leave the pooch outside whilst you grab your favourite pastry (and if you’re lucky, your furry friend will even get a little treat of his own!)

Set in the heart of the village and just 10 minute walk from the beach, The Sorting Office is ideally located for those wanting a lazy afternoon with a delicious cream tea near the sea or for those needing their fresh morning coffee before their hike on the Cornish coastline.
