Lovely and pretty

We stopped here for a bite to eat after cycling down the canal. We sat outside in the sunshine, eating bread and oils, chips with dips and garlic bread. The waitresses were really lovely and friendly. Excellent value for money, we will be returning! P.s you have to try their local cider!!

Two scones and a hot drink for £4.80! Excellent value and very friendly helpful lads working there. The wifi was a real bonus. One point off for delivering drinks well before the scones so that the cool wind outside had cooled the drinks down ahead of the scones arriving.

Popped in for a bite to eat on a cold blustery day. Staff so friendly, great decor and atmosphere. Food was great and just so much time. Must go again

Called in here for a warm & some lunch - perfect !!! Nice soup and a coffee. Worth stopping at. Had pretty fairy lights, and lovely natural interior. They looked to do nice cakes/treats.

It is a very good quality cafe at a good place in Bude. Good food, we had the Burger and the Power food Salad. Bit pricey for the wintertime but defenetly worth. Sadly Dogs only got to go outside, thats why I have to deduct one point.

A very friendly and welcoming restaurant. Good service and good food at a reasonable price. We were a party of four including our 5 year old granddaughter who had a variety of meals to choose from the children's menu. She cleared her plate which is a good testimony!

We recently visited for morning coffee as a party of eight, mid-December and I couldn't believe how large and well decorated it was inside - the staff are so accommodating (when they saw us trying to find a large enough table - two of them happily pushed two tables together for us and left us to choose our order).

The scones were my favourite :) the dining menu did look very nice just didn't have the chance to get back there for a actual meal. Keep... More

No dithering over the menu here - though the specials menu was a bit tempting on a dank grey December lunchtime. Wild mushrooms and poached eggs on toast with a buttery Bearnaise-type sauce are ever the choice - who needs to eat dead animal flesh when there's a gorgeously satisfying veggie dish like this on offer? Golden orange-yellow yolks spilling... More
