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

We tried this great vegetarian cafe after it was recommended to us by locals - always a good sign! We had the Christmas 3 course set menu for £16.50 which was delicious and great value. The food choices were interesting and provided great choices. The food felt like it was cooked with love and made for is. The cafe is... More

We live in Ilfracombe and reckon Grassroots offers the best latte in Ilfracombe. The homemade cakes are fabulous. The lunch time food is delicious and the £12 evening bistro menu (Fridays and Saturdays only) is amazing value, especially with BYO wine for £1 corkage. As some other reviewers mention, the décor is quirky and perhaps dated, and the lighting means... More

Late season visit to Ifracombe, two oldies had a week off from child minding, ate out most evenings and whilst the Curry/Tandoori house was very good and fish restaurant by the harbour good but pricey Grass Roots was the food highlight of our week. Not just the tastiest food but also incredible value.. have my own allotment so can only... More

Value for money at this restuarant is an understatement. You have a 3 course vegetarian meal, choice of starters, main and pudding for £12 ...yes £12! Its a BYO restuarant, so we brought our wine along and we were charged £1 corkage. So a delicious 3 course meal for 2 people with wine only cost £25 (excluding tip). To give... More
