“Unexpected gem”

Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Opened just before the August Bank Holiday in the large ground floor of a big old Victorian terraced house beside West Hoe Park and about two hundred metres from the sea. This is a clean simple modern family cafe with a couple of tables out front near the childrens play area and the servery and several wooden tables inside. There is already a Facebook support page and during the opening week it has been busy on wet and dry days. Easily justifies an entry. There has been a recent small surge in the large waterfront area involving independent small tea and home made fresh cake and snack businesses. Things are looking up.

I must have walked past a hundred times on my way to university as I only live around the corner but only went in for the first time this weekend. Great fresh food (the creamiest goats cheese) and perfect coffee for affordable prices. I'll be a regular soon enough!

We had a groupon deal for a baguette with a hot drink. The baguette was warmed and the filling cooked and prepared so was really fresh and warm. We went across the road and sat in the park to eat and drink. Very nice.

Stopped here for a light tea with my mum and my two girls 10 & 7.. It usually closes at 4.30pm but was open later due to the fireworks event. We all had baguettes which were offered with a delicious range of fillings, goats cheese with spiced pear chutney or Brie with beetroot pickle, for example. The bread was wonderfully fresh along with the salad and I believe all the ingredients are homemade or locally produced, including the hand cooked crisps. Service with a smile and a cosy comfortable 'front room' atmosphere, papers to read and little activities and puzzles for the children make this a lovely place to stop for refreshment.

We wanted a nice traditional cafe and just happened to come across this little find whilst on a day trip to Plymouth. The coffee was one of the best I've tasted in a long while and it didn't come with the "costa coffee" prices either and much much nicer , even so I had to have another cup! All the cakes are home made on site, I had the lemon sponge cake and hubby had the carrot cake ...they were to die for!! Highly recommended . Lovely atmosphere , clean and cosy. Located opposite a park too which is ideal for the kids.
