Friendly and prompt service. They do specials advertised on a board outside and we had the bacon and Brie baguettes and eat them sitting outside the Ship and Pilot pub opposite with a drink. Tasted great.

Having got to Ilfracombe early for a boat trip, we popped onto Adele's for breakfast and what a breakfast. The food was excellent and arrived quickly. Nice to have decent sausages. The staff were very friendly. Will definately be back.

I was staying at a hotel near by, which didn't include breakfast in the price so I took the opportunity to pop into Adele's and i was glad I did.

Called in a purchased a cheese and tomato and a prawn and mayo sandwich on white bread. Both were made in front of us. The filling was plentiful and the bread really fresh. Great price, great sandwiches.

Freshly made great selection of food, very nice staff, dog friendly place. What else do you need? I would love to come back again at my next visit in Devon. Highly recommend this cafe to everyone who would like to have a Devon cream tea or a fresh lunch in Ilfracombe.

Called in here to grab lunch for a boat trip. Food was made on request and bacon cooked in front of me as opposed to sat on a hot plate waiting for sale. Good sized portions and very happy with the price. Very polite staff that made me feel like a regular customer. Will definitely be calling in on my... More
