This is a nice little cafe just tucked away off the Hoe front. Well run with good food and staff. Have popped in for just coffee and sometimes for a nice baguette for lunch. All seems to be fresh and well presented

Looking for a quiet spot to enjoy brunch and read the morning papers? Look no further. I'm almost reluctant to share this recommendation as I don't want too many people turning up as I might not get a seat!

Whilst walking around the park in Plymouth came across this little gem. We had baguettes and sandwiches. It cost £21 for the four of us which I thought was reasonable. The quality was good and the team were friendly and pleasant. Well worth a visit as they also do take aways if the little ones don't want to leave the... More

Whilst staying in the vicinity we were able to visit this delightful cafe a few times. The menu is varied, homemade and delicious. The food is freshly prepared and extremely tasty. The atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and cosy with a gorgeous little sun trap and chairs outside. We sampled the paninis, cakes and breakfast. I would recommend all the food... More

Would highly recommend this cafe, the cakes are beautiful- especially the raspberry cream cake and millionaire shortbread. We were warmly welcomed by Nicky and Hannah, a lovely afternoon spent treating ourselves.

Stopped for lunch and a drink having seen the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. Friendly staff, good food from a simple but sufficient menu and awesome cakes and all for reasonable prices. We'll be back again.

I first wrote a review nearly four years ago. I loved it then and having eaten, on average, twice a week since at this delightful cafe I feel it time to review my original comments. By The Park Deli is a little jewel in Plymouth. Every item of food is lovingly prepared by the owner .... delicious soups, quiches, baguettes... More

We often pop into this small cafe for lunch or afternoon tea and are always made to feel welcome. They have a good range of sandwiches and there are daily specials including homemade soups and quiche...very tasty. Cakes are baked on the premises..my favourite is the carrot cake. While away an hour or two here!!

Superb cakes, excellent coffee and a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Lunch is a must with homemade quiche, soup, sandwiches, painis, salads etc. Will definitely return. 😊😊😊🍰🍰☕️🍵

Opened just before the August Bank Holiday in the large ground floor of a big old Victorian terraced house beside West Hoe Park and about two hundred metres from the sea. This is a clean simple modern family cafe with a couple of tables out front near the childrens play area and the servery and several wooden tables inside. There is already a Facebook support page and during the opening week it has been busy on wet and dry days. Easily justifies an entry. There has been a recent small surge in the large waterfront area involving independent small tea and home made fresh cake and snack businesses. Things are looking up.
