I visited this Cafe when I was visiting my sister who was staying in Woolacombe. There were 5 adults and 2 children in my party and thankfully the cafe was quite quiet when we walked in. The staff behind the counter were so friendly and welcoming, explained to find a table and she would be over to take our order.... More

Good Sandwiches for Beach and lovely Veggie and Meaty Breakfasts at any time of day from about 7.30 unlike most of Ilfracombe who seem to regard it as an abomination to have breakfast after about 11am on holiday!

We visited here at the start of our holiday in Ilfracombe. Having arrived early we were after some breakfast and this place delivered! It is situated near the harbour and there is plenty of parking around. There are plenty of breakfast options from light bites to full English and some veggie options too. I went for the full English which... More

If you are searching for a decent cooked breakfast in Ilfracombe this is the stand out choice. The staff are friendly and as it is quiet small you immediately feel at home here. The large number of locals who visited the cafe either to eat in or to collect their take away breakfasts is a tribute to just how great... More

We have regular trips to Ilfracombe and always visit this cafe. For £10 we get two large breakfasts that fill us up for most of the day. The quality of the food is superior to other cafes and the staff are so friendly. I also have some dietary requirements, which never seems to be a problem here. Would recommend this... More
