“Tea Table photo comes from Rock Salt Cafe listing.”
Review of Sage Cafe

Sage Cafe
Ranked #133 of 735 Restaurants in Plymouth
Cuisines: British
Description: Thriving cafe and carry out food facility in affluent inner suburb. Not that well known but generally full for most of every weekday and Saturday. Set on a busy lesser arterial road between a large prominent private school and a large state primary school in a thriving terrace of local businesses and galleries. Well above average service and food. Easily deserves a Tripadvisor listing given it's convenience and quality value for money.

“Tea Table photo comes from Rock Salt Cafe listing.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not sure what is happening at Tripadvisor in Plymouth but the lead photo for Sage Cafe showing the leather safa and fancy tea cups with little choc cakes and accredited to 'Photos from around the world' appears to be the same as the management photo dated November 2011 of the recognisable sitting area of the Rock Salt Cafe Stonehouse Plymouth, currently ranked 1 for apply mouth restaurants. Strange. How can we rely on photos if someone is suddenly putting 'photos from around the world' onto lots of venues which don't happen to have one. I see that other contributors have raised this issue. It is probably not in any way the fault of managements of the recipient premises but simply posting vaguely generic images completely undermines the Tripadvisor mantra that you can rely on unbiased independent reviews.

“Jan 2013 photo is not of Sage Cafe.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

No fault of the owners because the source of these neutral pictures which are popping up all over seems to be automated or mischief. However it does give a false impression of Sage Cafe which is friendly and committed and a bit more basic than the mysterious image suggests. Expect rather to have a good tea or coffee with a straightforward snack and a reasonable bunch of locals, often sat in their damp coats in a largish room often screened from the busy road by a curtain of condensation on the front windows.

“Convenient place for locals to stop in for a quick coffee and a bite to eat”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We swing by the Sage for a quick coffee or a fry up from time to time. The decor inside is pleasing enough and the staff are always friendly and efficient. The full English breakfasts are good, nothing extraordinary but usually hit the spot (would be good if they were open on Sundays for those Saturday nights out!). They have an outdoor area round the back when the weather is good which provides some additional seating. A convenient place to come to if you're local but I wouldn't come out of my way to visit.

“Tops!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

There is no better full English breakfast available in Plymouth, East Cornwall, or West Devon. Fantastic value, friendly staff, clean well decorated venue, and parking close by. You will not beat it. There may be nicer locations but Sage has the whole package.

“Fantastic food and service!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

My children and I love coming to Sage for either an after school treat or a lunch on a Saturday.
I.have even had the children's birthday cakes made here and they were delicious and such good value.
We have moved abroad but will definitely be visiting when we return in the summer!
