On a warm day the small back garden beneath the high retaining wall of the Elizabethan gardens makes this a peaceful and sheltered place to pause. It's not smart or particularly stylish but you wouldn't want it to be either. It's growing problem is that the prices are creeping up and the quality and size of the snacks particularly the... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and love it. Sylvia and her staff are so welcoming and friendly. The menu is excellent. Love the English breakfast, and the variety is good, 10/10 to the chef and waiting staff, great to see a place where you are treated so well, with a real warmth

Nice place and nice tea but the cake value for money is not what it use to be. I remember going there previously and I couldn't finish my slice of cake. Imagine my disappointment as I ranted and raved about this place and I return to be greeted with a very modest slice of £3.95 cake. I bake at home... More

We visit plymouth twice a year and love it down the barbican. There are plenty of options for breakfast and we've tried most of them and this is by far the best! A great homemade full breakfast or a few other choices but the breakfast is to die for! Always a friendly welcome too 😃 keep up the good work👍

Had a lovely breakfast here. Has a lovely garden but was too cold to sit outside. Staff were really friendly and full English was tasty and great value. Would definitely return and make sure I try the cakes next time.

Have gone to this cafe for breakfast for the last few years when we go to the firework competition. Very disappointed this year can only suppose that it has changed hands. Food not so good as in previous years and how they can charge £2.30,for Instant decaf coffee, especially as the ground coffee is cheaper. I really don't know. Shall... More

We saw that this tea room had great reviews and as we were looking forward to our first cream tea of our holiday we headed there. The tea room looked great and the staff were very nice. All good so far. My hot chocolate arrived and just tasted of milk. Our waitress didn't speak English so we had a little... More

This was so nearly a perfect visit, I would have happily given a 5 star review and raved about it to my friends, however, and this may seem petty, but one little thing put me off - the cost of a milkshake. The cream tea was lovely and the breakfast was good enough too, both of these I thought were... More
