This is a nice place to have a drink, the only problems is - in my opinion - that they only have one size of cup and it's small... this means that to get a decent size coffee you need two and have to pay twice for it. Other than that it's a nice venue and the staff are polite.

This was our second visit. Quite compact, steps to enter. On a bad corner. Across from Dawlish Library. Friendly staff artistic use of coffee decoration. Various cakes and delicacies. Reasonably priced.

Always a welcome, if only for a coffee. daily papers available. Can be busy on a Monday morning but you can always find a space. Staff very pleasant. Buy 9 coffees and get one free by using a Loyalty Card.

A great place for a lunch time snack, especially if you like a panini! These ones are Nigella's and they're about as tasty as you can get! The coffee is good too!

Lovely coffee shop with a good variety of cakes. Unfortunately only a small coffee shop, but worth a visit as very friendly staff and reasonably priced drinks and food.

Coffee and Earl Grey tea were fine. Table was dirty and when we asked it was cleaned with a bleach based spray, the smell of which was not very pleasant.

Friday afternoon and what a great place for coffee - probably the only good place for a coffee in Dawlish - slightly harsh on others but true. Two hot chocolates (which were amazing) and two white coffees. We were able to sit outside in the Sun on a small terrace and chat away. Café also serves alcohol!!

This cafe at the back of town is a great place for a coffee and sandwiches or toasties. The selection of cakes isn't great but the coffee and savoury food is very good. The service varies from average to very good depending on who is serving. Yes I have visited a number of times. There is a small terrace where... More
