Description: Caffe Tutto Great Western Road (Paignton Library & Information Centre) opened its doors in September 2009. This is the sister venue to our Torbay Road premises and has all the great qualities as the original, but here you are in the heart of the community. Situated only a minute walk away from the Paignton bus & train station in the heart of Paignton town centre, it is great if you have 5 minutes to kill before your transportation arrives. Sit back and taste the high quality Italian coffee and local produce including cakes, sandwiches and many other delicacies we offer, with the FREE wifi you can catch up with your emails before you jump on the train. As this is a public building there is NO alcohol on these premises, unlike the Torbay Road venue, but we have such a thirst quenching array of drinks such as Iced Latte's, Spiced Chai Latte's, Smoothies, Soft Drinks as well as our 5 star Coffee you will not feel the need for alcohol again! Also as we have outside seating for our customers who wish to sit out to watch the world go by or just for a smoke, just don't get to comfortable or you may also watch your train or bus go by. Our opening times are: Monday - Friday 09:00 - 17:00 Saturday Sunday 09.00 - 16.00 Sunday Closed

“Stale Cakes”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This used to be the best coffee shop in the whole of Torbay. The coffee is still good, but the cakes were well past their best. The butter that came with the toasted teacake was frozen and therefore unspreadable (an annoying habit that you find in a lot of coffee shops). The furnishings are getting very tatty. After using this coffee shop for years we now find ourselves searching for somewhere new.

“Best in the bay”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The coffee here is the best i've tasted in Devon, nice place to sit outside and relax and read the papers. Don't go anywhere else for your caffiene fix. The Latte Machiatto is to die for.

“Excellent Flat White”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Paignton has many independent cafes and also the mainstreams such as costa. However I would highly recommend cafe tutto, which serves authentic Italian coffee at reasonable prices. Also has cakes and other treats to go with your coffee.

Serves an excellent Flat White!

Located close to the station, and the main shopping street, a nice place to get your caffeine fix.
