If anything could have gone wrong with a meal out, it happened at this place! Rushed into making our menu choice from the second we walked in the door, pretty much verbally abused by the woman (I'm guessing is the owner) on several occasions firstly because she tried to charge my friend £12 for a portion of chips and she...

We have just had the most amazing meal here and I say 'amazing' for many reasons: quality, quantity, price, flavours, etc. We have enjoyed a high-quality Friday night 3-course meal for the amazing price of £13 per person (and this includes corkage - the other bit of the bargain is BYO!) One of us is vegetarian (well, almost) and the... More

Good service and friendly. Nice coffee plus soya etc available. We stopped off for a quick lunch, not realising it was veggie. Food was in good portions, quick service. It was good for a quick, filling and tasty lunch - it's not haute cuisine but that's not what this cafe is trying to be. The menu for the Bistro nights... More

My partner and I have visited many veggie eateries all around the country. We were happy to find the Grass Roots Cafe on Trip advisor and managed to book the last table at the bistro (open fri/sat night). We were delighted to be welcomed by the friendly owner who had listed the vegan options ready for us. £12 for 3... More

Always have a tasty experience just a shame the bistro is only open two nights a week, but well worth the wait. Always book in advance. Day time food is just as scrummy. Open all week.

Had a day in Ilfracombe with my mum. I'm vegan and mum wanted a pasty...we walked almost the length of the town looking for somewhere to eat, and almost went in a deli, but thought we'd carry on walking just in case. We stumbled across Grassroots. How lovely to find a 100% veggie establishment, and even more so to have... More

I live in Canada, but am living close to Ilfracombe for the next 5 months. Today was a cold, soggy, blustery, wintry day. So, by the time I'd finished my shopping, I was feeling damp through. The sunny space in Grass Roots Cafe, with all the sunflowers everywhere, was the perfect antidote. I had a luscious lunch - Brie, grape... More
