Welcome to the Minions Shop and Tearoom website, the site of Cornwall’s top shop! 

We are based in the highest village in Cornwall, meaning that our shop is Cornwall's highest village shop! Minions was built as a mining village and is surrounded by history, mythology and archaeological intrigue! Please see the local area page for more information

In our shop we offer a wide range of convenience products along with lots of local Cornish produce such as Clotted cream and Kelly’s scoop ice-cream. We also stock delicious bread, pasties and scones from nearby Chapel Bakery, as well as Helluva Pasties, Vegan Pasty Company Pasties and Rowe's Pasties. Our shop, and tearoom, is licensed so you can enjoy some lovely Cornish cider and local ales with your food.

We sell a range of gifts and crafts, more information can be found on our craft page, and we hope to showcase and support a wide range of local artists and craftsmen.

Our Tearoom is dog friendly and has a wide menu suitable for a range of dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan, gluten and wheat free diets. If you have any particular requests please feel free to contact us to discuss, some options require at least 60 minutes notice as they are prepared to order.

We also have a Post Office service available on weekdays from 9-12 offering a range of Post Office services including the health lottery and we are a National  Lottery outlet.
