This is the kind of place I used to go to with my grandmother when I was little. It's located on the upper floor of an old-fashioned department store in the middle of Axminster. The food is fresh and tasty and the service is usually speedy. The soup and cheese scones are highly recommended. Try and get one of the window tables which overlook the square on market day.

Good lunchtime selection at reasonable prices. On the downside the air conditioning was too cold.

Old fashioned coffee shop above the clothes shop. Offering traditional good service, food and tea/coffee. Nice place to rest the legs after a wander around town.

I must say I was very impressed with the coffee shop in this department store. Not only was the service warm and welcoming, but the coffee and toasted tea cakes were lovely. My friend and I went back a few days later for lunch, which was equally as impressive. A good choice of various meals, and not expensive.
Hope to go back one day.
