stopped by for breakfast and was not disappointed. Everything was cooked just right, coffee was excellent, service sharp and friendly-couldn't fault anything. Will be back again!

Had not seen this restaurant before and very pleased to have found it. We had lunch there and the food was very good. It was well present with good portions. Will definitely return.

I absolutely love Urchins especially their breakfasts . Everything is outstanding and I highly recommend . I take my little sister in here sometimes as well and she usually has cream tea with a special Hot chocolate! She loves it .

Stopped here for lunch purely by chance. We shared a delicious home made soup and a savoury cream tea. The cheese scones, soft cheese and chutney were brilliant. The rest of the menu looked pretty good as well, would definitely go back.

We had both lunch & breakfast here (not on the same day!). Both times the food was really good. I would certainly agree with a previous review that the café could do with some extractor fans... That is my only criticism. Staff are welcoming and attentive, the food is fresh and plentiful. Certainly worth a visit whilst in Bude.

Called in for breakfast only to experience the following: Hash browns saturated in oil. Oily smell in the restaurant area due to no extractor which clung to our clothes all day, only toilets are outside and down a back alley to get in a staff only door, and staff were just about responsive to conversation if directed at them.

Lovely thick bacon and the bread is delicious, doorstop comes to... More
