“disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Went here after hearing it was a nice cafe to go too, went with a friend she enjoyed her meal more than mine. I had a small pizza pepperoni but it was slapped on with major garlic. Now i like garlic but that was too much it made my tongue tingle. unfortunately this is the only experience i have had, had i had something else i'm sure it wouldn't have ruined my opinion. also thought that my tiny pizza was over priced!

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Love eating lunch here. It is rather pricey but food is very good. Cafe doesn't have many seats so when it is full you can feel a bit squished but it all adds to the atmosphere :)

“Now poor value for money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Used to be good but is now over priced. £6 for a BLT sandwich with a measly small rasher of bacon in it is a rip off.

“a regular visitor,great little fairtrade cafe, great coffee and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

We have had lunch here every six weeks when we go into Barnstaple for the last seven years. The service, food and coffee/teas are always very good. We generally have a toasted panini and onion focactia bread with a great choice of fillings, there are also daily specials. They serve fairtrade food and drinks and support the Amigos childrens charity.

“One of the best cafes in town!”

I have been going here for years and it is always fantastic.
The milkshakes are gorgeous and i particularly enjoy the paninis!!!
The staff are friendly and attentive, especially Lisa the owner she is the heart and soul of Kafe Karumba!!
Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere which has a nice atmosphere, and wonderful food with reasonable prices! Oh and dont forget the custard danishes! yum!!
