“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Welcoming ambience and a busy cafe. Had a range of cakes and snacks available. However the food did not live up to expectations - the 'baguette' was actually a submarine roll which was either stale or defrosted badly in microwave and the filling poorly prepared so it was not very appetising and edible. We appreciate that we were not charged for our food but feel our concerns could have been taken more seriously so others do not have a similar experience in the future.

“A walk around Ilminster and called into Bilbys”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

On our way to a hotel we stopped off at Ilminster for a quick walk around and noticed Bilbys were offering teacakes and coffee for £2.70 each. The staff are very welcoming and our teacakes and coffee were lovely and exceptional value.

“The best local cafe !”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Regular visitor to this place for either just a coffee or a breakfast.
Sometimes hard to get a seat as it's so popular!!

Always excellent service from some of the nicest serving staff around.

If you're visiting the town I recommend it as food/drink pitstop!!
