We called in for lunch today, very friendly staff, great selection of lunchtime meals. We ordered sandwiches which were generously filled with very tasty fillings. Great value for money we will be visiting again and recommending to friends

Breakfast full English was very tasty. I fancied something I should not normally have. Warm bread pudding with clotted cream!, a special holiday treat. Fabulous,,,

Pot of tea, big fat scones with jam and cream makes a great stop off before or for lunch. Right next to the harbour so easy to find and next to the ship and pilot this cafe dishes up some lovely meals and snacks and also welcomes muddy paws. Defo clean tidy and plenty to choose from. Definitely recommended by... More

Went to Adele's with my mam on Saturday. Have to say I was disappointed. We had the pies, which, with chicken, ham & leek, were pretty good. However the chips were processed & average. The gravy was awful - instant & thin. And that was it, for £6.50 or nearly €10 where I come from, which for what it was,... More

We parked up on the quayside and walked past several places in search of breakfast, wh. We stumbled on Adele's - the place was buzzing! We got a friendly welcome from absolutely everyone on the staff who quickly got us a table sorted. Delicious food, great coffee and brilliant value for money - and open from 7.30 in the morning!

Had a very nice Brunch, Bacon, Egg, Sausage, Beans, Chips with Bread and Butter and a Pot of Tea. Small homely style Café, very pleasant staff and very good service. We also had a very nice Plougman's, cheese and Ham and a full plate. A popular spot, well worth a call at reasonable prices, if you can get in.

Great friendly place near to the harbour in ilfracombe. Small place, seemingly always busy, good prices and coffee was included in the breakfast price ...we went for early breakfast. Adele is open early so it's a great place to start the day.

This is just a great cafe. Brilliant breakfast and as it opens at 7.30am you can have a blow around the harbour to wake yourself up and then pop into Adeles for the brekky of your choice. Great service, lovely decor and a good choice of food, I was brought up in Ilfracombe and this is a really good addition,... More
