Great cakes, coffees and a warm welcome. Well worth a visit. I came with my family - especially three young (and noises) kids. Not a problem!!

Yes it's a very rustic place but the food is lush & very tasty. All elements of our dishes were delicious in their own right & together made a fantastic satisfying meal. We both shared our meals... Just incase of meal-jealousy! Good selection of different meal choices. Thank you Feast!

Our second visit to f.east and still overwhelmed by the amount of flavour crammed in to the vegetarian/vegan menu. Sharing two dishes between two people but only because everything sounded so good we couldn't decide what to have each! The portion size was spot on, the colour and variety on each plate was excellent, and we were even able to... More

Stopping on route to Dartmoor we were blown away by the inventive menu in this cute cafe in Ilminster. Tucked away at the top of East Street, F.east is a vegetarian cafe with tons for vegans too. We had a late lunch, sitting in the sun dappled courtyard under a pretty brick arch. Our lunch was full of flavour and... More

One of the sustaining reasons for living in Ilminster is F.east. Its like an addiction! Not only is the food fabulous, cakes to die for but the hot chocolate is the best I know. I feel a homecoming feeling when entering the consistently busy restaurant as i am always greeted with beaming smiles, roaring fires and a delicious bohemian ambiance... More

Popped in here for lunch after reading the reviews as we were staying nearby for a few days. We were not disappointed! Quirky, yummy and very friendly service. We had the Vietnamese coconut and butternut squash curry- it was absolutely delicious ( we both eat meat, but in no way missed it!) A smart restaurant this isn't, but the amazing... More
