“A rare find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Have visited this little gem of a café several times over the last few months. It is easy to miss, as access is just a doorway, down stairs, just near the BHS store in Union Street. Ian and his staff are always welcoming and the food is divine, large portions, freshly prepared each time. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Found this little gem of a place whilst looking for somewhere to have lunch when visiting the town.
A wonderful little place with a friendly and informative owner.
The food was very good as well as being good value.
The strawberry salad that came with the food was a nice surprise.
If you are offered the homemade honey and mustard dressing, try it, it was lovely.
Can't recommend this place enough.

“A little Haven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This little Bistro is a favourite of ours in Torquay. It has character, warmth, charm and the food is to a very high standard. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed. Try their wonderful breakfast which is a bargain at the price and a tasty treat at any time of day! Their omelettes are great value and salads are always fresh and very colourful, served with strawberries and wonderful dressings!

Prepare to be pleasantly surprised by this hideaway gem in Torquay Town Centre and we can guarantee you will want to return!

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

My partner and I visited this restaurant / cafe earlier this week for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised!
Having never noticed it before, we chose the bay tree over our usual safe choice haunts for lunch.
The quality of the food that arrived was excellent, the service from the owners was exceptional and friendly, atmosphere was very relaxed despite being on the high street. Also very reasonable in price.
We'll definitely be visiting again.
