Warm up at Blacks


Christmas Lights Switch On

Today, Saturday 25th of November is the Christmas Lights switch on in Penzance. A great day to see the streets turned over to pedestrians and people free to walk around town and explore the shops and take part in the start of the festivities.

Crispy Bagel Lunch Offering
Tasty Bacon Crispy Bagel for Lunch at Blacks of Chapel Street

Chapel Street is, believe it or not, also closed to traffic (although we have had an interesting morning watching some who think that if they drive the wrong way up the one-way system nobody will notice…). This has allowed Blacks to place tables and chairs outside, with a lovely big heater and blankets to help take away the winter chill (authentic!). But even better is the great choice of food and drinks on offer.

All this lunchtime and through the afternoon there is a winter warming menu with some delicious food to chose from. If you are looking for a hot jumbo bagel with a range of tasty fillings, or maybe a bowl of heart-warming soup, then we have plenty of choices.

Alongside the regular selection of Voyager coffees and Novus teas, we have put together a couple of hot alcoholic drinks – a mulled cider and a mulled wine. These have been quality checked this morning and are just great for keeping the spirits up on this cold winter’s day.

So if you are in Penzance this afternoon for the big Christmas lights switch on, make sure you come down Chapel Street as part of your explorations.

Open tonight as well for the regular evening menu, including daily fish specials – we won’t be expecting you to sit outside as Chapel Street will be allowing cars to use it again, but the real fire will be lit inside and you will be assured of a warm welcome by all the team at Blacks.
