Adele's Cafe, Broad Street, Ilfracombe

A lovely little, spotlessly clean Cafe serving well-cooked food. We ate breakfast there every day of our stay in Ilfracombe due to the appalling breakfast offered in our nearby Hotel.

Very cold and wet morning on New Year's Eve. We were looking for a dog friendly cafe in order to get away from the rain but once inside we were tempted by the all day breakfast. The food was nicely prepared with not a hint of grease and the service was quick and very friendly. Before leaving we also spotted... More

If in Ilfracombe and you want simple tasty food you can do no better than stopping here. From their all day breakfasts, jacket potatoes to paninis all at reasonable cost with friendly service.

Feeling cold and hungry on a December morning we called in for a breakfast. One normal, one vegetarian with mugs of steaming coffee.. food cooked to perfection. Just what the Doctor ordered. We would definitely go again.

Even though early in the morning, Adele's has a charming ambience, fresh, clean and pretty. Adele is warm and welcoming and her husband cooked us an excellent cooked breakfast. Always a good sign when lots of local regulars visit! Great place to visit, and intend to sample their cream teas next time we visit.

I took the family in here for lunch and was lovely, they do various meals including all day breakfast and many home made dishes along with takeaway sandwich bar, the decor is great and atmosphere lovely. Everyone loved their meal and as a bonus they have home made cakes for afters/takeaway.

This is a lovely little café right on the front in Ilfracombe. Whilst recently staying in the town, I had both breakfast and lunch here on different occasions. The breakfast was lovely and very well made and came with a slice of perfectly done toast on lovely thick bread. The café is clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Highly... More

Simple menu, simple rustic surroundings, fast service and decent quality food. I had a ploughmans which was fresh and lovely, husband had a bit of brunch, egg, bacon, chips and sausage. It's nice quality style cafe food and I'll be going back to try out breakfast or a cream tea. Prices were not expensive. A friendly, small but cosy place,... More
