Tried some of the specials dishes recently and I haven't had one yet that I disliked. The steak is amazing as is the crab sandwich and I adore the beef stifado. Exquisite food as always.

Great place to pop into for something to eat. Although we had to wait a bit it was well worth it. If you like a cooked breakfast you must try Urchins.

This cosy little gem is an amazing little place, the staff are extremely friendly and professional, the food is 10/10, portions are perfect not too much not too small (we're big eaters too), very reasonably priced, dog friendly which was perfect for us. One thing I personally take note of is how clean the sauce bottles are, these are pristine!... More

Went here for lunch with our children, food was nice and it's a nice place only draw back is the toilets are outside round the corner and down an alley which isn't ideal when you've got a 2 year old who can tiddle for England!

called in here for a late lunch and wasn't disappointed! Nice friendly place, clean and good honest food. I just had a baked potato but it had a lovely crisp jacket (not microwaved) and came with a good salad mix. The menu offers a good range from full breakfast to pasta, steaks, burgers etc. Definitely go again.

This cafe is our usual stop off for a full English breakfast when visiting Bude. Nice food! Haven't heard anything else other than breakfasts there. No complaints

We visited this cafe on a visit to Bude, we asked if it was okay to bring our 2 small dogs in they said yes as long as you keep them under the table, and then the waiter said where will your child be sitting. Not would you like an high chair for your daughter. We felt very uncomfortable they... More

First time in this establishment and it was excellent. Good menu selection and the food was cooked to order making it very fresh and tasty. No complaint but the time waiting for your fresh cooked food had you biting your nails. The pricing was good and if ever in this town again I will definitely use it again, recommend a... More

Visited with 2 young children for a late breakfast before a long journey home from our holidays. Accommodated children's sausage sandwiches and our waitress was lovely, friendly, chatty with the children and very professional. Only downside is the access to the toilet being outside however they were very clean.

Thank Amy C
