“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We've have visited Dartmouth several times over the past 10 years. Café Alf Fresco is always a highlight of the visit and almost worth the 400 mile round trip in itself. Well-cooked, good value food, great staff, interesting setting. A credit to its owners and Dartmouth in general.

“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.
