“Tranquil oasis in packed Paignton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Cafe Verde is a lovely place for lunch away from the busy heart of Paignton. Set in the front garden of a house above the harbour and family run, it really is a pleasure to eat here.

We had baguette with salad and Devon cream tea, served in huge mugs. Generous, good quality portions served in our case by the owners hard working granddaughter were good value.

So for lunch in a quiet oasis on a sunny day, I recommend Cafe Verde.

“Lovely little garden cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Friendly staff and good coffee and freshly prepared food, often home baked cake and freshly made chutney When the sun is shinning its beautiful place to sit and relax, discretely near the main beach.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Excellent service, excellent food, all in a tranquil setting just off the seafront. It has a lovely feel as it's set in a very pretty garden. The home-made cakes were delicious, the coffee was tip-top & the sevice was friendly.
I would recommend it to everyone.

“The garden I always wanted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Although you are technically sitting in someone's front garden, I absolutely loved this coffee shop. The staff were very friendly, the garden was beautiful and the home-made cakes were second to none. I would highly recommend the cream tea, the servings are generous and it is good value for money.
