Stopped for a latte, probably one of the worst coffees I have had!!! Employing young kids to make coffee is great but at least train them up well and get them to show a little enthusiasm!!! The size and shape of the cup makes no odds as does what you order they all taste the same!!! No effort to make... More

There are a few of these in brixham it seems. Coffee is fine, although I preferred the latte at the Market House, which is fairly new and over by the Golden Hind ship. However, the frappe was really good - maybe the best I've had! Rocky road was also nice.

We visited bay coffee company many times and the coffee and cakes are always fantastic. John was kind enough to let us buy a whole tray of rocky roads for my girlfriends birthday and it was fantastic. We always stop off for a coffee whenever were around the area and there is always a friendly smile to welcome us in.... More

On a cold, rainy February Thursday in Brixham, when all other restaurants seemed to have shut up shop for the day, this seemed to be our only option for lunch. And we were pleasantly surprised – nicely busy (with locals as well as holidaymakers like us, which is always a good sign), friendly staff, clean and warm. The homity pie,... More

Great coffee and an wonderful custard tart. We found the cafe very friendly, but not exactly swanky but comfortable enough. We would happily go back again when next in Brixham.I hope they have the egg custard tarts again, they were the best we had had in years.

The best coffee and cakes in Brixham, lovely selection of cakes, sadly no sandwiches. Although they do a Hogeity Pie, I didn't try but they looked tasty. The young ladies that served us were so helpful. Would highly recommend this little coffee shop on the quay side.

Place was dirty, staff were pretty rude, texting whilst working, the cakes were delicious, lemon meringue pie was amazing. Coffee was nice, I guess with a half decent manager this place would be a gold mine.

The coffee here is good and a costs less than a lot of other places in Brixham. The atmosphere is relaxed, good for an early morning visit and a read of the papers. The only downside being there is only one toilet which could have been a little bit cleaner. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The Bay Coffee Company always serves superb coffee and the themed cup cakes are a real treat. As this week was Halloween we had a "ghost" and a "pumpkin" which were moist and beautifully decorated. With a relaxed atmosphere and friendly and efficient staff the Bay Coffee Co is the place to head for when in Brixham.
