I dropped in for a bacon sandwich and as always it was warm and inviting. The staff are always helpfull and give a great service, with a smile. The food is of a consistent great standard.

Popped in for breakfast today on the recommendation of a friend, have to say that I was not disappointed! I was warmly greeted by the staff, ordered a breakfast which was cooked quickly and was truly delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and the decor delightful! Will be visiting next time I'm in Bude.

The food was not as nice and there was no atmosphere . Twice before we have been overcharged so on checking the bill this time it came as no surprise to find that we had... More

Nice little cafe/bistro - one of the smarter places in Bude from what we found. We stopped for a light lunch with our two year old. The place was good value, a clean, smart little place and a friendly welcome. Would visit again.
