I have been here for the 8o/c opening and then another time stretching the closing time of around 2pm. Various other times as well, Whatever the time the service is friendly and the food excellent.

Really sorry we were shut but as our sign says we may have to close at times as I am off work with a broken foot and Mick needs a day off occasionally! Normal openings will resume as soon as I am back on my feet. .Looking forward to being back and seeing you all soon More

I had a full English breakfast and it hit every button. Mug of tea was just right, toast was made from lovely bread and everything you expect on a breakfast was there and cook well. A must for locals and visitors. Great and friendly service makes it a fab experience. Will be back.

A great little cafe on the high street with warm friendly staff. We had a beautiful breakfast with quality local produce. It was excellent value for money.

The staff were lovely and the food was delicious. They even made our dog welcome which was a big plus for us when it is so difficult to find dog friendly restaurants.

I loved this cafe! They made me feel very welcome and the food was delicious and not over priced. Service was good also. I have been back a few times and was happy each time. They also have high chairs for children and a few toys available for their amusement. Children's menu is available at a good price too.

We called into this lovely little cafe for a coffee on an extremely wet Devon day and got a very warm welcome from the owner. Would definitely call in to sample the food if we are in ilfracombe again. Recommend for a friendly welcome

We rode our push bikes from Plymouth to Ilfracoombe and the next day we were looking for a BIG breakfast. Found it here, with a friendly welcome and flexibility, swapping various bits for others. Thoroughly recommended!
