Such a great little find! Staff were so friendly, quirky decor and most importantly the food was great. Even had gluten free pizza which was brilliant and so tasty. Went back in the morning for coffee. Looking forward to the next visit already!

I highly recommend the lemon polenta cake, very light and zesty, with a flat white. Lovely bit of chill out time. Great service too.

This was a great find in the sleepy little Devon village of Chagford. We went in for breakfast and the variety of food on offer for my wife who is gluten free was wonderful.

Cheerful,attentive English service. Comfy, trendy atmosphere. Had an excellent homemade pizza & salad with a wonderful bottle of house wine from Griffiths Australis for amazingly cheap price. Went back next morning for proper coffees. PS : The new jeans fitted perfectly x
