“Simple but good service and food”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I've used this cafe several times over the years. Always been provided with good food and great service. There is nothing special about the food, just good quality simple stuff with no pretentious bits added. The service is good too. Friendly, courteous and always time to help if needed.
It's easy to miss as you have to go on the station platform to find it. Be warned that it closes early in the afternoon, but then it is open early.

“Nice fresh look, same great service and food.”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Since my last review the cafe has had a face lift. An update to the internal decor has given the cafe a new fresh look. The food was of the same exceptional standard as my last visit delivered with the same great service. This is always my first port of call when I visit Torquay.

“Breakfast perfection.”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

A warm welcoming cafe with superb food and service. The menu choice is good and the breakfasts the best choice. Great value for money and everything cooked to perfection and can accommodate if you would prefer it cooked different ways. A hot steamed coffee just perfects it. Also being dog friendly a great add on.

“A hearty breakfast in a hidden gem of a location!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2011

This cafe is located at the Torquay Train Station and can be easily be missed if you didn't know it was there, and what a mistake that would be to make!! The cafe does exactly as you would expect. It provides a hearty breakfast (2 Sausages, 2 Eggs, 2 Bacon, Fried Bread, Hash Browns, Beans, Mushrooms and 2 rounds of Toast) for only £5.20!! You can go smaller if your appetite is not up to a large!! Other cafe menu items are available but when is it not acceptable to eat a Large Breakfast? The actual Cafe is located in the actual railway building and posseses high ceilings and a nice friendly feel. The staff were helpful, friendly and very quick to serve my hot breakfast.
