We didn't do breakfast at hotel we chose to just have breakfast when we were out and about. This cafe was so nice we went back again. One of our grandchildren does not eat cooked breakfast so had cereals and toast which was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Adele's Cafe is the place to go for breakfast in Ilfracombe, it's also about the only place that's open at 7:30am. Ideal if you are going over to Lundy as we were. Very good prices and excellent food. Friendly staff and atmosphere. They also do a all day breackfast along side a cream tea in the afternoon.

Dog friendly cafe, something which you don't find often. Lovely vintage feel and the food was local produce and great quality. Service was wonderful and quick. Little gem which is worth the trip, whether it's breakfast, lunch or just a snack

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...
