Me and my friends visited the cafe on the last day of our holiday, the breakfast was the best one we have had all week and the bread was unbelievable! Wish we had known about the cafe when we first arrived on our holiday. Will definitely be going there again :)

Great little cafe. Stopped in for Sunday lunch last week - home cooked with plenty of pork scratching and real gravy. Worth a visit to avoid the over priced venues on the harbour.

Excellent breakfast stop with locals buzzing in and out. The service is very friendly, and the proprietress made a real fuss of our little one. Breakfasts were generous, good value, and cooked fresh to order. The large was only a pound more than the regular, and represented a good investment. No baby change in the old building, but high chairs... More

I always try and pay special attention to single travellers as I was one for many years myself and know how important a friendly face is. So glad you enjoyed your visit to us and our beautiful North Devon. More

Wonderfully friendly & efficient service and really lovely proper Devon cream tea with home-made scones. Got so much useful local info from our chat with Jill. Thanks so very much - well worth a stop-off :)
