It was great to find a warm friendly cafe , I was on holiday on my own and Jill made me feel like an old friend/local to the cafe, really lovely. The food was great and very reasonable. Looking forward to coming back to have the cream tea! Highly recommend

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 :)

A charming cafe, with really friendly and accommodating owners. The breakfast bap is just right, 'proper' thick tasty bacon, egg and mushrooms - enough to satisfy without incapacitating!! Even wrapped for take away in tin foil - so it doesn't lose temperature and stays hot and tasty, perfect!! (other take away chains should take note!)

Not only do they make you feel welcome, they're genually interested in your visit to Devon, and are only too happy to point... More
