We had a very nice cream tea at Cafe Michele and it includes the most enormous and delicious homemade scones I have ever had in a cafe, no piddly little things out of a packet. Would definitely go again.

We decided to make a slight detour from the A38 and have breakfast here. We're glad we did. It's an unpretentious cafe but clean and we enjoyed our bacon baps and coffee. The staff are pleasant and helpful. Michelle was a delight to chat with.
