From reading reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to try a breakfast here as we started our weekend stay at Ilfracombe. Having been up for a fair while travelling down here, I was hungry and went for the "big Micks" breakfast. It was great value and very filling. The service was wonderful, which included being given advice on places to visit... More

Best breakfast in North Devon. We went not the first day and enjoyed the welcome and food so much we had to return. My husband had the "big micks", I had the veggie full breakfast and my 2 year old son had some weetabix and was kept quiet with the toys on offer. Anyone with a toddler will share my... More

What a lovely welcome!! We felt as if nothing was too much trouble! We arrived with baby, toddler, and almost teenager plus four adults for lunch which we all enjoyed. The sandwiches were very good, everything was freshly made. We'll be back again when we next visit

A wonderful 'vintage' little café in the heart of Ilfracombe owned by two of the loveliest people I have ever met. They do all day breakfasts, lunches, Sunday dinners in fact, almost anything.You must try the Cornish Pasties made in Devon by a Yorkshire man! Also, if you like chocolate then the 'death by chocolate' cream tea is a must!

Delightful homely cafe with food as good as it gets. We are so glad we found this hidden gem. Lovely tasty curry and the best chips we've had in ages at a great price. Try the delicious gooseberry crumble - yummy!
