Fantastic breakfast with friends at this awesome busy cafe with atmosphere by the the bucket load. Prices are not cheap, but quality is good and friendly feeling abounds.

“New Year Resolution - No visiting Alf's !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Damn that's the new year resolution blown - I just couldn't resist the the fisherman's baguette .... what's in it ? Eggs/Sausage,Bacon,Field Mushrooms, tomato and probably much more !

Once you get over the staff, or should I say crew, trying and succeeding to be ultra cool and reflect on what you are getting it is quite wonderful. The atmosphere is unique and the service enjoyable to experience - it is the natural home for all things cool and of course offers free access to wifi - with even a iMac to play with ! - I counted five ipad users surfing while supping.

Shame it's only open from 7am-2pm. But if you find yourself in Dartmouth then you should not miss the opportunity to visit Alfs, though if you don't fancy sharing a table and meeting new people then you probably belong in Costa.

“Fun and fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just had breakfast at Alf Fresco for the third or fourth time, and realised that I've never reviewed it so.... It's just great, the food is lovely and really good quality, the service is super-friendly, the atmosphere is buzzing and we just wouldn't go anywhere else in Dartmouth for breakfast! Will be back over and over again, and recommend it highly. The decor is rough and ready and done with a sense of humour, and has the feeling that it hasn't changed in years, which is a good thing in my book!
