Lovely Cafe

I had a lovely coffee, my friend had tea, and we shared an excellent cheese scone (as we had only just had our breakfast!). We both loved the cafe, it looked inviting from the outside, and was very clean and fresh looking inside. We were made to feel very welcome when we opened the door.

Very friendly staff, serving excellent food and coffee. I judge cafes by their coffee and this is a good one! Convenient location too.

Came here for Sunday breakfast as not many places open. Greeted really well which was a good first impression. ordered full Englishes which weren't good. The sausage tasted so cheap, the toast came out early so was cold before we got breakfast. My boyfriends tea came out already with milk in, he likes it strong but it was served weak... More

The all day breakfast is great, and kept us going until supper!! The staff are very welcoming. The flexibility on their breakfast menu is appreciated especially when you may not want exactly what's listed and nothing is too much trouble. My only dislike is that they are happy to allow dogs....but l'm sure that if you are a dog owner... More

Stopped here for a bite to eat as they allowed dogs in the cafe, We were served quickly and the quiche and sandwich that we had were both tasty.

Stopped here each morning while staying for a week in Ilfracombe for my morning brew. Quick, friendly service. Good coffee on a takeaway basis. Ideal location as it is just a quick stroll to the harbour area.

Old-fashioned cafe and tea room serving all the staples required by the British holiday-maker. The food never disappoints and the folk are friendly - they would have got five stars if only they had a loo on the premises - instead you have to traipse around the back to the public loos in the car park. But otherwise excellent.
