Whilst staying at Ilfracombe for a few days we discovered Adeles for coffee initially then returned later in the week for a lovely breakfast. During the meal the cafe filled with workmen and holiday makers to give a great atmosphere.

Small cafe, so struggled for a seat but glad we waited, as food was fresh and tasty. I had veggie breakfast and really enjoyed. My husband and others had the full English and they could not fault it. Clean and tidy and service was relatively quick. Would recommend and will be back.

I ate here twice and sat in. The all day breakfast was very nice so to the ham, egg and chips. The service was speedy and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Im not sure i liked the dogs welcome though...

When we booked our accom we thought it best not to book breakfast because we had our grandchildren with us so there be no hurry. I am glad we didn't because adele's is really loving and brekkie is really good here,are youngest grandson had cereals and porridge on our second visit which he was loved. Well worth a visit

Nice to find a friendly cafe open early as I like to go out early when on holiday not be held back by having to wait for hotel breakfast to be served. I had a full English it was nice and worth popping in for food or a cuppa on a cold morning.

Thank rob j
