We have been regular customers of The Manor for a while now and can honestly say that they make the best coffee in Ilfracombe. Mick's breakfasts are faultless and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Everything is freshly prepared and every permutation of order is catered for. Mick and Jill and their staff create a warm and cosy atmosphere... More

Brilliant staff, they made us feel very welcome but due to me not eating egg or tomato my breakfast seemed a little overpriced, most places just throw in extra beans or toast or even a sausage but never the less what i had was lush.

Our visit to this cafe was a spur of the moment thing and we had no regrets. Owner manager/chef are very friendly and knowledgeable about their extensive menu and daily specials. I had gammon egg and chips because I love it and was not disappointed. My companion had one of their speciality burgers and although pleasant was not 'chilli' enough.... More

We had our dog with us and we're made to feel welcome and we were told of dog friendly places to visit. On our second visit we had lunch, the food was good hearty home cooked food. I... More

From the outside it looks a little plain and old fashioned. Don't let that fool you! The welcome is sincere and the food brilliant. Great menu available and all home made.

Well yes we would look a little old fashioned, we are Ilfracombe!! Did you look up though? Devon Life featured us as the best example of the style in the County. You can have a free drink if you can name the animals featured when you next visit. More

My husband and I were lucky enough to sample a Roast Pork Sunday lunch yesterday. It really was perfect in every way and served by lovely people who are passionate about using local produce wherever possible. This cafe is certainly well worth a visit...you will not be disappointed! We look forward to our next visit.
