“What a great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Alfs is not only voted No 1 as Dartmouth's famous cafe but is now listed UK wide as THE place for breakfast and brunch. Wonderful vibrant party type atmosphere with tremendous fresh cooked food.

Peter and Kate who own and run it with their team of young and enthusiastic staff are a shining example of what you can achieve by hard work and initiative.

We've been all over the world and can't think of a more atmospheric friendly place to enjoy breakfast or a champgne brunch with other like minded people.

It says something that our really young grandchildren are happy to walk an hour and a half on the cliff path in both directions so that they can have an Alf's breakfast.

Also look out for Kate's summer evening dinners and special music events ---unmissable !!

“Dartmouth Institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Rustic, original, great food, great staff - and a small pot of sausage for four legged visitors. A visit to Dartmouth really must include a visit.

“Love it!”

Often cross the river on a Sunday for brunch at Alf Rescos. The atmosphere is great, owners very friendly and all of their staff are polite and extremely attentive. Definitely not to be missed if visiting Dartmouth.

“Friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Worth a visit - such a friendly team working there. Kate was ever so lovely, suggesting places to stay and geniuely keen to help us!

The coffee and hot cross bun was exactly what we needed for an afternoon treat!

Only opens until 2pm - so get there quick before they close.
