Lovely cafe at the harbour, food really tasty reasonably priced. Staff are lovely, even when rushed off their feet and faced with picky eaters are extremely welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended.

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.

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!
